    "Pursue your interests and make lasting friendships through the wide range of co-curricular activities (CCAs) in NYP. Some of my best memories are from being part of the NYP Judo Club. Though the training is tough, I have formed strong bonds with my teammates."

    "NYP frequently organises workshops, programmes, events and competitions where students can hone their skills. Through my experience representing NYP in the WorldSkills Singapore competition, I learnt a lot about leadership, teamwork and stress management."

    "Learning is a two-way street at NYP. Lecturers don't just teach; they have lively discussions with us too. Being able to approach them any time for a chat and to share ideas has helped me develop my passion for design and become a better person too."

    "The campus is constantly refreshed, with facilities upgraded and new ones added every few years. I got to work with the latest state-of-the-art equipment and was kept up-to-date with industry-standard knowledge and expertise."

    "I was attracted to the diversity in NYP's diploma courses such as how the Diploma in Accountancy & Finance included business modules and work attachments. It gave me a solid foundation for my degree at SMU now, where the accountancy course is similar, just more extensive."

    "NYP lecturers have a wealth of industry experience that we draw from to make learning interesting and to nurture students' innovative spirit. When I was a student here, my lecturers inspired me to excel professionally and now, I want to inspire my students in the same manner!"

    "At NYP, we don't just focus on classroom learning and academic performance. There are plenty of opportunities to see the world through various international programmes and to get practical hands-on experience via the different industry collaborations available."

    - Yang Ting, School of Information Technology

    Mentoring Club
    Who's it for? Caring individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of those around them and be the change they wish to see in the world

    Spend your Saturdays being a friend to someone younger. In the past two years, the Mentoring Club has touched the lives of over 200 secondary school students through weekly mentoring sessions, tutoring and interacting with them, to help them achieve their potential. It also organises a variety of events that promote personal development among youth.

    "Being a mentor has been very meaningful as I see the growth in those entrusted to me. I'm now more deliberate in engaging and communicating with other people."

    - Edsell Li Zhenhao, President, Mentoring Club
    Diploma in Business Management, Year 3 student

    Arts & Culture

    SoundCard
    Who's it for? Talented individuals who are passionate about singing and music

    Feeling inspired after watching Glee? If you dream of being part of a glee club, look no further than SoundCard.

Its members perform regularly at campus lunchtime concerts, and also organises an annual production.

    K-Wave Club

Its annual productions also always see a full house.

    Work Hard, Play Hard

    Joey's three years at NYP can only be described as action-packed. He was not just on top of his studies, he also took on leadership roles in three CCAs. His active involvement in CCAs helped him gain leadership and networking skills, improve on his public speaking abilities and pick up planning skills.

    Joey's tips to achieve studies-CCA balance:
    • Manage your time well by drawing up a daily plan and sticking to it.
    • Balance out the stress of your studies by joining at least one CCA, where you can build a strong network of friends.
    • Don't be afraid to approach your lecturers and the staff in charge of your CCA if you need help. That's what they are there for.
    • Always be willing to learn and put 100% effort into everything you do.
  • Caring Environment

    Transitioning to new surroundings can be tough and having someone to support you can be a great help. At NYP, you have a personal mentor to confide in, as well as lecturers whom you can turn to.

    "Ms Lee was very generous with her time and was constantly asking for updates on our business projects regardless of how tired or busy she already was. She often got us drinks and biscuits, especially when she knew we hadn't had breakfast. These little acts demonstrated how much she truly cared. My class even nicknamed Ms Lee 'mama' because we liked her so much and even now, I make it a point to keep in touch with her."

    "Helping students excites and inspires me and it's hardly a chore when they display good attitude and are eager to learn. Ying Ying was enthusiastic in class, self-disciplined and always on time, which is a rare virtue nowadays. Though she lacked some business creativity and required a lot of guidance in the beginning, she was receptive to ideas and advice given to her, and she had the drive to succeed. These are qualities that will serve her well and ensure success in whatever she chooses to take on."

    5 Benefits of Having A Mentor

    • Develop greater self-esteem and confidence
      Your mentor is there to support and guide you through challenges.
    • Achieve better grades
      Research shows students with mentors generally do better in school.
    • Expand your network
      Your mentor may know of options and opportunities that can offer you academic and personal growth.
    • Strengthen your communication and social skills
      Build on these soft skills through regular interactions with your mentor.
    • Set focused career goals
      Your mentor can offer good insight, help you fine-tune your chosen career path and guide you towards success.
  • International Opportunities

    Internships, student exchanges, competitions, conferences and voluntary work are just some of the many global programmes open to you through which you can broaden your horizons and discover new cultures.

    "Though we all come from different ASEAN countries, we share more similarities than I had thought. It was a great time of learning from one another."



    Thailand

    Boosting regional ties


    ASEAN Youth Camp
    Kun Yao was one of five student delegates from Singapore who attended the 2015 ASEAN Youth Camp, held in Nakhon Pathom Province. The biennial camp aims to strengthen bonds in the ASEAN region through the younger generation. Kun Yao had the opportunity to engage with peers from different countries and experience the art of Thai drawing and painting. Through the cross-cultural interactions, he learnt to appreciate different languages and social and cultural norms, and found it especially interesting to discover that many of them had a keen interest in 'Singlish'.

    "Every student should not miss out on going for exchanges or study trips. The new experiences you'll have while studying in a different country and learning from another culture are simply priceless."



    Australia

    Experiencing a foreign land


    Student Exchange Programme
    One of the highlights of Maybelline's time at La Trobe University was attending a student tutorial group session and participating in a lively discussion on the different types of infections and their treatments. She also visited hospitals in Melbourne to observe the local healthcare settings and processes, as well as understand more about the unique challenges they faced.



    "It was an honour to have the chance to put my abilities to the test against so many talented people from around the world. I came away feeling richer for the experience."



    Brazil

    Making a mark for Singapore


    WorldSkills International 2015
    It was an eye-opening trip to the sprawling city of São Paulo for Daniel when he travelled there for the WorldSkills International competition and was tasked to set up a network system suitable for small and medium enterprises. His two years of training and hard work paid off when he bagged a silver medal in the IT Network Systems Administration category, bringing glory to both NYP and Singapore.

    "The world becomes your classroom when you're living and travelling so far away from home. I've become more independent and open-minded since the exchange."



    The Netherlands

    Cross-cultural collaborations


    Lions-Netherlands Exchange
    While on the inaugural Lions-Netherlands Exchange - a collaboration between NYP and the University of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Leiden - Mardhiyah spent two action-packed weeks going on excursions and field trips around the Netherlands with a team of UAS students, including taking part in a molecular cooking demonstration by a Michelin-starred chef. These outings helped them in their challenge to develop a showcase that highlighted a future smart city where technology is being harnessed for food sustainability, such as the one being built in the Dutch city of Almere. Working with her Dutch hosts on the project brought out cultural, behavioural and even sleep pattern differences, but it was an experience Mardhiyah would repeat in a heartbeat.



  • On-the-job Learning

    Take your chosen career for a test drive, interact with professionals at work and sharpen your ability to apply theory to real situations. These are just some advantages you will enjoy when you take on an internship with one of NYP's industry partners as part of your coursework.

    "With my experience, I will be able to work faster, more accurately and more efficiently than before."



    WORKING WITH THE BEST


    As a student intern in interior design at WOHA Architects, a multi award-winning architectural firm whose portfolio includes Crowne Plaza Hotel and School of the Arts, Hong Xuan was involved in the production of a number of projects. She has seen a marked improvement in her ability to wield software that is key to an architect's job, after having to use various software to create and beautify design drawings. She also actively proposed the use of different designs and material finishes for some projects.

    The chance to be part of the team and get involved in design projects from the start was particularly enriching and she believes it will give her a competitive advantage when she joins the working world in future.

    "Living alone in a foreign country also made me think more about life and opened my eyes to the world."



    Honing Creativity Abroad


    Hong Kong was home for Joyce for three months when she was doing her attachment with Carbon TV, a boutique motion graphics and design studio. There, she experienced first-hand the dynamic nature of an independent studio and how vital teamwork was. It was also a chance to put what she had learnt in NYP to practice under the guidance of Carbon's creative director Tereza Tan and art director Jacky Lo, and to be involved in the filming of a channel ad for an actual client was an eye-opening experience for her.

    The internship has helped Joyce professionally and personally as she gained a better understanding of the skills required to excel in the digital media industry and where a career in this field would take her.

    "With better communication skills, I was able to pitch my group's ideas to the judges in a confident and engaging manner during the Singapore Computer Society's Splash Awards, a national IT competition."



    Behind the Numbers


    There is no better place to learn the ropes of managing money properly than at Singapore's central bank, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), which holds the strings to the country's pockets. Adrian spent nearly three months as a vacation trainee at MAS' Financial Markets Development Department and enjoyed the exposure to a vibrant work environment where decisions and projects that are implemented have an actual impact on the wider society.

    Under the guidance of his warm and approachable senior colleagues, Adrian also found himself improving on his written and spoken communication.

    "I learnt food preparation techniques and used many new and different ingredients that I'd not worked with before, such as liquid nitrogen, which lends a smoky, snow-like effect."



    Cooking Up A Storm


    Gitu spent six exciting months at Saint Pierre, a French fine dining restaurant in Sentosa Cove, learning the ins and outs of running a successful food & beverage (F&B) establishment under the tutelage of prominent chef and restaurateur Emmanuel Stroobant. She was involved in kitchen service and operations at the front of house, where she picked up valuable tips on food-and-wine pairings.

    Gitu got a real taste of how hard F&B professionals work, but it did not put her off the F&B industry. She is currently studying for a bachelor's degree in culinary arts at the Culinary Institute of America and credits her work experience at Saint Pierre for helping her to snag a place at the prestigious school.

  • Future-ready

    An array of possibilities awaits you as an NYP graduate. Embark on an exciting career, try your hand at entrepreneurship or pursue further education - just like these graduates.

    "My journey to a degree in nursing has not been easy and I'm very grateful to NYP for giving me a platform to shine and grow. Initially, I had some fears about keeping up academically as I had worked as a nurse for a couple of years before enrolling in NYP, but my wonderful and nurturing lecturers were very encouraging. They drilled into me the need to assess patients swiftly and effectively, and the experiences they shared have been invaluable. I was able to do well in my studies and be awarded a full scholarship for my nursing degree, allowing me to fulfil my dreams and deliver the best care to my patients."

    "NYP was the perfect place to build a striking portfolio showcasing my versatility and a broad understanding of the industry. That, I think, went a long way towards helping me stand out in my interview with Lucasfilm and securing my current role as a lighting specialist. I have been involved in producing some of the biggest blockbusters, including Avengers and Avengers 2, Transformers 4 and Star Trek 2, and I can't thank my lecturers enough for their guidance and for helping me master the art theories, concepts and fundamentals that continue to be useful in my work."

    "Challenging the big boys in my industry is hard, but NYP taught me to never give up and this was the attitude I adopted when I set up a local recruitment portal in 2014. I've maintained close personal ties with NYP even though I graduated 15 years ago and my then-programme manager has become a personal friend. I even taught his son in my previous job conducting training in MOE schools."

    "At NYP, I didn't just learn about product design. I also gained marketing and planning expertise. My lecturers had worked in the industry before so they were in tune with the industry's processes and requirements, and they often shared with us the little things that could make a difference in getting our designs and ideas accepted. They also offered very practical advice, such as time-efficient strategies that came in very useful when I went on work attachment in NUS. Thanks to the solid foundation I've built at NYP, there is a wide variety of career paths that I can choose from in future."

It was a thought-provoking experience and I now have a greater understanding of and an interest in current affairs."

  • Game For Entrepreneurial Success

    "We started out with tiny web-based games before working on a bigger project titled Blue Giant, which had to be scraped as it was too massive for us. But it led to the birth of Spacejacked and that's when we truly found Rotten Mage's identity."

    GAME FOR ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS

    As an aspiring game programmer, NYP's Diploma in Digital Entertainment Technology was a perfect match for Lim Chian Song. "There was no other polytechnic offering game development courses, so we were the first batch for our generation," he states. "We were able to learn from lecturers who were from the game industry as they imparted their experiences to us."

    Most graduates would solely focus on their studies, but Chian Song had a bigger dream ahead: starting a game development company. The idea was sparked by partners Chin Yong Kian and Jonathan Ong during their time in NYP, and they were later joined by Chian Song to make their dream into a reality.

    The trio formed Rotten Mage after completing their undergraduate studies in 2013, but running a business wasn't as easy as they thought. "We had no real vision on what we wanted to do. We just knew we wanted to create fun, entertaining games," says Chian Song, "We started out with tiny web-based games before working on a bigger project titled Blue Giant, which had to be scraped as it was too massive for us. But it led to the birth of Spacejacked and that's when we truly found Rotten Mage's identity."

    Spacejacked bagged the 'Best Linux Game' award in the 2015 Intel Level Up Contest recently. Meanwhile, the team is planning to launch the game in early 2016 and will be looking into improving the features and graphics. Also, they hope to make the game available on game console systems in the future.

  • The Globetrotting Intern

    "In class, I learnt a lot of theories. But I never knew how to put them into practice until I started my internship. From there, I was able to apply what I learnt and even picked up new skills."

    The Globetrotting Intern

    Just how far can an internship take you? Hear it from Rachel Tan Yan Zi who had a valuable and dynamite internship.

    Phuket, Kyoto, Osaka, Athens - these are the places Rachel travelled the world for after snagging a sweet six-month gig at Spinergy Inc. As a Diploma in Hospitality & Tourism Management student, Rachel not only gets to indulge her wanderlust, but also broaden her horizons and gain cultural exposure in different countries. "It was a totally new experience for me!" she chirps. "I've definitely acquired invaluable experiences about the industry and grew as a person."

    While you might think Rachel landed a pretty awesome internship, it's not all just globetrotting and glamour. Work still had to be done - her role overseas included setting up of the hospitality desk, onsite registration, secretarial and logistics support. Initially, she had some difficulties adapting to the working culture, but she managed to overcome the barrier and soon became part of the big family. To further sweeten the deal, she was offered a two-month contract at the end of her internship.

    When asked about how her classroom knowledge came in handy during her internship, she explains: "In class, I learnt a lot of theories. But I never knew how to put them into practice until I started my internship. From there, I was able to apply what I learnt and even picked up new skills."

    It was an eye-opening experience for her - she's now more passionate than ever about the industry, and is excited to explore the other aspects of MICE. Upon graduating, she hopes to pursue a Bachelor Degree in Hospitality Business.

  • Adventures Abroad

    "When I was overseas, I experienced and saw the difference in society and the level of development as compared to Singapore. It dawned on me how privileged we are and it really took down the walls of prejudice that Singaporeans would normally have."

    Adventures Abroad

    It's a dream come true for Leow Min Chon, Diploma in Engineering with Business student, who discovered the world through the variety of overseas opportunities Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) has to offer.

    Fancy roaming through sacred grounds of a royal palace, revelling in the natural beauty of the wilderness, and skipping stones along the river? It's not every day that you get to experience this, but those were what Min Chon experienced during his recent expedition to Thailand.

    Nominated by his lecturer for the overseas programme, Min Chon jumped at the opportunity to take part in the Asean Youth Camp 2015, in which he reveals to be his most memorable trip thus far. Despite the myriad of culturally diverse personalities, everyone interacted well with each other. Travelling from Salaya to Huahin and lastly Petch Rim Tarn, the group enjoyed immersion trips to major landmarks, museums, temples and floating markets. Min Chong went on his second 'excursion' to Thailand in September for the Temasek Foundation Specialists' Community Action and Leadership Exchange Programme. For his next trip, he will be going to Japan for the Japan-EAST Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths Programme.

    For a young chap like Min Chon, it came to us as a surprise that the most important life lesson he learnt abroad was actually about our homeland. "When I was overseas, I experienced and saw the difference in society and the level of development as compared to Singapore. It dawned on me how privileged we are and it really took down the walls of prejudice that Singaporeans would normally have." Wise words indeed!

  • "Creativitee" Unleashed

    "I am truly humbled to be given such an incredible opportunity. It strengthened my faith in not only my craft and designs, but also Singapore's local design scene as a whole."

    "Creativitee" Unleashed

    If you're a regular patron of UNIQLO, you might have seen Vicki Ng's brilliant SG50 T-shirt designs. A recent graduate from NYP's Diploma in Visual Communication, the 22-yearold is the brainchild behind '50 Types of Singaporeans', which was originally part of her final year project. Her idiosyncratic designs revolve around tongue-in-cheek Singaporean sayings that run the gamut from 'chop chop kali pok' to 'ya ya papaya'.

    Vicki's work caught the eye of UNIQLO Singapore, who decided to debut her collection via the brand's UTme! app under the UNIQLO Street Tales initiative. To celebrate the golden jubilee, shoppers at UNIQLO's Bugis+ outlet were able to print their favourite catchphrases onto UNIQLO T-shirts. Speaking about her thoughts on the unexpected collaboration, Vicki exclaims: "I am truly humbled to be given such an incredible opportunity. It strengthened my faith in not only my craft and designs, but also Singapore's local design scene as a whole."

    Inspired by Singaporeans from all walks of life, '50 Types of Singaporeans' was born with the intention to strengthen our national identity and reignite the spirit of community. "Singapore may be a melting pot of cultures, but there are still many elements that are uniquely Singaporean. I am extremely grateful that a huge brand like UNIQLO recognises the applicability of the designs. I hope they become a cool conversation topic among youths, now that they have a much wider audience."

  • In Pursuit of A Healer Dream

    "NYP's School of Health Sciences has a very clinical focused, practical and hands-on study educational philosophy. The lecturers provided students with the skills to work effectively as a nurse, and to be a productive and resilient member in the workforce. This has led to my diligence in pursuing my childhood ambition of becoming a medical doctor."

    In Pursuit of A Healer Dream

    Drawn by the many prospects that NYP's Diploma in Nursing had to offer, David decided to enrol in the course - but what he achieved in return was much more than he had imagined. David's time in NYP was well spent, with lecturers evoking critical thinking, imparting clinical knowledge and honing communication skills, which allowed him to form a good foundation for his medical career.

    Even though the Diploma in Nursing provided David with job security and employment with Tan Tock Seng Hospital upon graduation, he had bigger dreams of becoming a medical doctor. After completing his studies, David went on to take his Bachelors of Science (Nursing) with Curtin University and Masters of Intensive Care Nursing with La Trobe University, eventually completing his medical studies this year with Deakin University.

    While most healthcare professionals work in the comfort of air-conditioned hospitals and clinics, David chooses to rough it out in rural Australia. His commitment to rural medication also led him to become the nominated Chair of the National Rural Health Student Network (NRHSN) in Australia, the only multi-disciplinary student network which focuses on improving healthcare in the rural and remote areas of Australia.

    With keen interest in rural and remote medicine, David has dreams of becoming an Anaesthetics and Intensive Care Unit medical practitioner doing work in aero-medical retrievals but he will need to gain more experience and clinical knowledge first. He is now one step closer to his dreams as he has been recently accepted to the University of Sydney to study his Masters in Critical Care Medicine.

  • Securing Your Future With NYP Scholarships

    "NYP has provided me with a solid understanding of the fundamentals, which will be very useful in university. In fact, one of the core modules involves the mastery of Linux, which I am already well-versed in."

    Securing Your Future With NYP Scholarships

    If you find yourself picking up programming during your free time, you might have just found your calling. That was what happened to Ming Hong when he found himself more interested in computer science than his 'A' Level subjects while he was studying in Junior College.

    After knowing the opportunities NYP extends to their students, Ming Hong decided to take up the Diploma in Information Security (currently named Diploma in Cyber Security & Forensics) instead. And his participation in extracurricular activities and excellent academic results earned him the CSIT - Nanyang Scholarship. Presented in collaboration with the Centre for Strategic Infocomm Technologies (CSIT), the CSIT - Nanyang Scholarship offered a full sponsorship of Ming Hong's tuition fees, along with book prizes, talent development programmes and an internship with CSIT.

    During his three years in NYP, Ming Hong was able to develop technical skills such as programming and systems administrations, putting them to the test during his internship and competitions such as WorldSkills Singapore and Singapore Cyber Conquest. Through the internship, Ming Hong was able to hone his skills with guidance by industry professionals. He also gives credit to the lecturers at NYP for their tireless support while preparing for competitions. "They would stay with us till midnight to help us get ready," says Ming Hong. "What mattered more than the invaluable experience of improving ourselves in the technical aspects, was their dedication to their cause." Their perseverance paid off when Ming Hong and his team mate won the Singapore Cyber Conquest, securing a fully sponsored trip to Las Vegas to attend the BlackHat Technical Conference - an annual event dedicated to information security research, development, and trends.

    His outstanding academic results, remarkable internship performance and many accolades won him the CSIT Undergraduate (Overseas) Scholarship for his Bachelor in Computer Science at The University of Warwick, United Kingdom. "NYP has provided me with a solid understanding of the fundamentals, which will be very useful in university," shares Ming Hong. "In fact, one of the core modules involves the mastery of Linux, which I am already well-versed in." With hard work, perseverance and a strong foundation built in NYP, there's no telling when Ming Hong would do us proud again in another international competition.

  • Ahead of the Pack

    "I have friends studying in NYP who told me all about the facilities available on campus. They told me that I would not regret studying there."

    Ahead of the Pack

    When asked why Diploma in Pharmaceutical Sciences student Ho Hui Ying decided to join NYP, she replied that her friends played a large part in her decision. "I have friends studying in NYP who told me all about the facilities available on campus," says Hui Ying. "They told me that I would not regret studying there."

    With a keen interest in how medicines work in the human body, Hui Ying embarked on her journey in Pharmaceutical Sciences, where she picked up knowledge and skills necessary for her course. With her lecturers' help, she was able to overcome the initial challenge of understanding some of her modules due to her lack of chemistry background in secondary school.

    Hui Ying found the NYPFP useful in helping students get accustomed to the polytechnic course structure and learning style. "Unlike in secondary school, I now attend lectures, tutorials and practical lessons," says Hui Ying. "As time passes, I'm more familiar with the curriculum. The NYPFP definitely helped in that aspect."
