WHO WE ARE
The Australian Alumni Singapore (AAS) is the national umbrella organisation for the 200,000 Singaporean or Singapore-based graduates of Australian universities. With the Patronage of the Australian High Commission and the ex-President of Singapore, AAS aims to promote friendship and goodwill amongst graduates and members of various tertiary and professional institutions from Australia.
Since 1955, AAS has created a platform that forges closer business, social and cultural links between Singapore and Australia – alliances that enhance professional and leadership opportunities for Australian alumnus who are based in Singapore.
In 1955, a small group of returned graduates from Australia, with the esprit de corps to establish a forum to interact and forge a close link between Singapore and Australia, founded the Australian Alumni Singapore under the leadership of the founder President, Mr Michael Fam Yu Onn. Since it’s inception, the Australian Alumni Singapore has grown into a well-established graduate organisation.
Through the years, thousands of students have gone to Australia to receive higher education and returned to join the ranks of successful professionals instrumental to the present development of the Republic into a modern and sophisticated centre of communication and commerce. Many of the returned graduates who, at one time or another, were actively associated with the Alumni are today Government Ministers, community leaders, and prominent figures playing vital roles in Government, Public Service and Private Sectors, responsible for the continued progress of our young nation.
The Australian Alumni Singapore, through the uniting efforts of it founders and successive office-bearers, and the enthusiasm and support of the Australian High Commission, has not only forged a close link to promote goodwill and understanding of each other’s social, economic and cultural values, but also formed an important part of the fabric of relationships between the peoples and professionals of the two countries.
AAS works closely with the Australian High Commission, the office of the President of Singapore, Australian Universities, and their respective Alumni Associations and Chapters in order to achieve these objectives.
Ex-President of the Republic of Singapore
Patron of AAS
Since its establishment in 1955, the Australian Alumni Singapore (AAS) has evolved and grown to be one of the leading alumni organisations in Singapore. Under the competent leadership of its Management Committee and the strong support of the Australian High Commission, the membership of AAS has seen phenomenal growth in recent years and its activities are well attended by members. Through these efforts, the AAS helps promote goodwill and understanding among Singaporeans and Australians.
Singapore and Australia share a special relationship built on long-standing ties and mutual trust. The two countries enjoy strong political, economic and people-to-people ties, which will be further strengthened with the Singapore-Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership. The work of AAS adds another important dimension to the lasting friendship between Singapore and Australia.
I would like to congratulate the AAS on its many achievements. Starting this year, the AAS will be implementing its new 2017-2019 Strategic Plan and the supporting digital initiatives. I am confident that these plans will bring AAS to the next level.

Australian High Commissioner to Singapore
Patron of the AAS
It is my pleasure to join as a Patron of the Australian Alumni Singapore (AAS). Since 1955 the AAS has evolved to becoming one of the leading alumni organisations in Singapore. Political and economic ties are important, but the Australia-Singapore people-to-people ties form the bedrock of our bilateral relationship,
Even in the face of a challenging few years as a result of the pandemic, it is wonderful to see under the leadership of the AAS’ Management Committee significant membership growth and continued engagement and increasing numbers of partner universities as well as social media growth. My warmest congratulations to the AAS for its many successes.
2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the first iteration of the Singapore Australia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA), and 2025 marks the 10th anniversary of our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP), and the 60th year of Singapore’s independence and the diplomatic ties between our two countries. Established in 1955, the AAS predates formal Australia-Singapore ties – 68 years and going strong. A testament to the potential and leadership of the AAS.
The Australian High Commission in Singapore greatly values the AAS’s contribution to Australia’s local and regional engagement. I look forward to working with the AAS in my capacity as Australia’s High Commission to Singapore. To not only continue forging our close links and promoting friendship and understanding between our two nations, but also to advance the prospects of all members in Singapore and beyond.

68th Annual Report of AAS
29 March, 2023
Honourable Chief Guest Angela Robinson – Chargé d’affaires to Singapore, other distinguished guests, Members, AAS Council of Advisors, Partners, and Members of AAS Management Committee.
It is my honour to welcome you all to the 68th AGM of Australian Alumni Singapore and the first Face-to-Face AGM since COVID. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Ms Angela Robinson for her presence and for the special address. I would also like to acknowledge the staff at the Australian High Commission for hosting us here at this stunning venue.
Founded in 1955 as the umbrella organization representing over 200,000 Singaporean and Singapore based alumni from 43 Australian universities, AAS aims to enhance professional and leadership opportunities for Australian alumnus who are based in Singapore. The AAS platform that we have built over the past 68 years has played an ever-important role in building closer business, social and cultural ties between Singapore and Australia.
While the COVID years were challenging in many aspects, our community has emerged stronger than ever. We seized the opportunity to reinvent ourselves to be relevant to the needs of our ecosystem – our members, our partners, and the community we live in. This wouldn’t have been possible without the constant feedback, support, and encouragement from our Patrons, Council of Advisors, our members, and our partners.
An organization is only as strong as its members. The changing demographics of our members and the changing behaviours attributed to COVID, and other external catalysts also meant that we had to rethink about how we add value to our members. We launched new initiatives, expanded new partnerships, and invested further in building our capabilities to engage and enable our members.

⁃ Grew our presence and reach through our social media initiatives expanding by over 100% last year.
⁃ We organised over 30 activities including networking events, luncheons, business, talks community engagement activities, interest group get together, and more. We also organised our very successful Anniversary Gala Dinner after a 2-year break.
⁃ We have grown from strengths to strengths in all aspects including our financial position enabling us to invest back into growing our community.
Our Partners always played an ever-important role in ensuring our ability to expand our community further. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to our long-standing partners – our Diamond Sponsor James Cook University Singapore, Gold Sponsor Lendlease and Victoria Global Trade and Investment Silver Sponsor Trust Capital Advisors and CPA Australia, our official wine sponsor Wolf Blass for their continued support.
Partner University Program accelerates the university’s ability to reach, connect and engage their alumni network. It also provides an accelerated growth path for students and new graduates through our Mentorship program, internship opportunities and exclusive job opportunities enabled through our alumni industry networks.
I would like to acknowledge our incumbent university partners Partner University Platinum – James Cook University Singapore and Partner University Gold RMIT, Partner University Silver – Macquarie University and The University of Queensland.
In addition, I would also like to welcome 7 new University Partners – Partner University Gold – University of Newcastle, Partner University Silver – The University of Melbourne, Federation University, Charles Sturt University, Curtin University.

As President of Microsoft Asia Pacific, Andrea leads Microsoft’s strategic direction and operations in the region, supporting digital acceleration across 16 countries, and driving the company’s mission of empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. She also serves in multiple boards and is an avid advocate encouraging girls in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM), women in leadership roles and enhancing the employability of people with disabilities.
I would like to acknowledge the AAS Management Committee for their tireless efforts and their commitment to the AAS community. Taking time out from your family, work, and social commitments to volunteer for AAS and help in the growth of this community is not easy. Let me also take this opportunity to acknowledge the AAS Management Committee as well as extend my sincere gratitude to our outgoing Management Committee Members – Ms. Mathilda D’silva, Mr. Rennie Sng and Ms. Li Li Kuan.
We had a strong year, and we achieved many milestones which all of us can be proud of. We have a huge opportunity ahead of us and our journey ahead will not be easy. We have come out of challenges much stronger than before, and I am hopeful that 2023 will be yet another momentous year for AAS.
Our strength and reach are unmatched and the opportunity we have is immense. We are stronger when we empower each other. On behalf of the Management committee, I would like to thank you for your partnership and trust you have placed in us.
