7.8 | Admission Centralisation Policy

Student recruitment for SU has historically been split into two operations: one for Assisted Students and a second for Fee-paying Students. This structure works efficiently, given the different dynamics of these two applicant pools. Assisted Student recruitment, conducted by the Fundraising team, targets regions and schools that are generally under-resourced, and seeks financial support from local government agencies to subsidize admitted students’ tuition and allowances. The Fee-paying recruitment team targets high-performing applicant pools at national, national-plus, and private secondary schools that are more likely to be seeking a U.S.-style college and could pay tuition.

7.9 | Student Code Policy
