Soft skills are the life skills we use every day to communicate and interact with other people, both individually and in groups. People who have worked on developing strong soft skills are usually more successful in their professional and personal lives. We are not born with good communication skills; like any other skill, they are acquired through trial and error and repeated practice.
As part of LIFE’s commitment to scholars, we are constantly seeking to develop their soft skills to best prepare them for the world beyond academia. We successfully launched the SST pilot in 2015/2016, and we will continue to expand the programme further.

The SST mainly covers the following skills:
  • Interpersonal Communication 
  • Public Speaking 
  • Business Etiquette 
  • Emotional Intelligence 
  • Time & Stress management 
  • Writing a CV 
  • Personal branding 
  • Team building and team bonding
  • Improving performance
  • Problem solving techniques
