King's renews partnership with Ngee Ann Academy

King’s College London has renewed its partnership with the Ngee Ann Academy (NAA) - a leading private education Institution based in Singapore, to continue to deliver King’s BSc Nursing with Honours programme for a further 5 years.

Established in 2018, the partnership was built upon a joint vision to offer qualified nurses in Singapore the opportunity to gain a highly regarded degree in Nursing whilst continuing to work in the country’s healthcare sector. Now in its fifth year, with more than 600 enrolments, the programme continues to grow and adapt to both the local and global environment. 

The King’s Nursing programme was designed in consultation with key stakeholders, internationally renowned clinicians and academics both at King’s and in Singapore. The programme provides students with the skills needed to lead improvements in healthcare quality, safety, access and value.

We are delighted to have renewed this partnership with Ngee Ann Academy for a further five years, celebrating the achievement of the BSc Nursing (Hons) programme as well extending the partnership to postgraduate study. The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care is ranked number one in the UK and 2nd in the world and is pioneering transnational education at King’s. This continued collaboration reflects a joint commitment to providing the highest quality education opportunities in Singapore, contributing to the needs of the country whilst also tackling global challenges.

In November of last year, King’s and NAA hosted the first round of celebrations for 149 students graduating from the programme, with 72% of graduating students achieving a first-class or upper second-class honours degree.   

The partnership between Ngee Ann Academy and King’s College London has grown from strength to strength, and the signing of this agreement to broaden our collaboration heralds the start of many more exciting opportunities ahead to bring relevant and cutting-edge degree programmes from King’s College London right to the heart of Singapore.

NAA is part of a wider organisation called the Ngee Ann Kongsi which was founded in 1845 to look after the religious and welfare needs of Teochew immigrants in Singapore, and has evolved to become a significant contributor towards the enrichment of Singapore society.

At King’s we have a long-standing commitment to service for society, and we look forward to continuing to develop our partnership with the Ngee Ann Academy, which reflects this commitment through the delivery and support of nursing graduates in Singapore.
