About the Representative Office

Our office in Singapore was established in 2017 to help us shape our future activities in Singapore, scope opportunities, and further develop our alumni network.

Our student recruitment work across Southeast Asia and Australasia is run from Edinburgh by Louise Zeelenberg, our Regional Manager for Southeast Asia, and is not connected to the work of the Representative Office.


The University has relationships with some of Southeast Asia’s leading institutions including:

  • National University of Singapore (NUS)
  • Nanyang Technological University (NTU)
  • Singapore Management University (SMU)
  • Srinakharinwirot University
  • Thammasat University
  • International Medical University
  • Universiti Tun Abdul Razak


We seek out the best students from countries across Southeast Asia and Australia, with a dedicated team of recruitment staff. Louise Zeelenberg, Regional Manager, leads recruitment in the region.

To support our applicants from Southeast Asia and Australasia, we publish dedicated guidance on entry requirements, which translates UK requirements into local qualifications.


We regularly meet with prospective students and partners in Asia.
