School of Arts and Social Sciences Conferences

School of Arts and Social Sciences believes that research forms a crucial part in the tertiary education. It not only advances the frontiers of knowledge, but also generates new knowledge, broadens the visions and brings in new ideas on teaching.

 

With this insight, the School organizes innovative interdisciplinary research on cross-cultural themes across different disciplines to contribute to the academic field and knowledge generation.
