Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences-SIM


Pre-university programmes that bridge the gap between secondary school and university, and prepare students for university.


The Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences was launched in 2016 and replaces the Diploma in Economics, which was offered from 1988 to 2015. Many Diploma graduates have gone on to earn University of London degrees with First Class Honours. We expect the Certificate students to do likewise.

Partner University: University of London, UK.
