Shelton College International has signed MOUs with well-known Singapore film and TV production companies to provide a broad range of internship and industry-related opportunities for students
Shelton College International is an accredited education institution and since it established the Film, TV and Media Production, Hosting and Performance Arts as well as related media programmes, it has been committed to providing students with up-to-date professional knowledge and skills. Shelton aims to equip our students to have relevant qualifications and to become industry-ready in a rapidly changing world.
At the same time, Shelton has endeavored to work with industry partners (e.g. via the signing of Memorandums of Understanding or MOUs) to provide a broad range of internship opportunities for students to cultivate industry relevant professional skills. Industrial partnerships also allow Shelton to offer students greater opportunities to practice practical skills as part of their studies.
Shelton College International maintains good academic cooperative relationships with well-known universities in the United Kingdom, Australia and other Commonwealth countries, as well as in China and other countries. In addition, Shelton has established cooperative relationships with well-known companies in various industries in Singapore.
Therefore, students in Shelton not only have access to up-to-date academic resources, but also a wide range of opportunities to engage in industrial attachments and internship. The two complement each other, so that students will eventually have competent professional capabilities.
Currently, companies that have established an industrial partnership with Shelton College International include:
· Iskandar Malaysia studios: covering an area of 30 acres, construction value of 170 million US dollars
