Core Modules - Providing students with a firm foundation in the central discipline of their studies.
Prescribed Electives - Helping students to develop specific focus and fields of specialisation within their course.
Complementary Electives - Exposing students to subject areas outside their main discipline of studies.
 

Where permitted, students will enjoy the flexibility of choosing certain areas of study to match their interests and aptitudes or to adapt their academic workload to suit their pace of learning.

GLOBAL OPPORTUNITES

Travel, learn and in the process, broaden your horizons. We have built strong collaborations with renowned overseas institutions and key industry partners, creating extensive opportunities for students to study and work outside of Singapore. Such overseas stints give students first-hand experiences in a cultural, educational and business environment that is markedly different from our own. This international exposure can take several forms:
 

ATTACHMENT AND EXCHANGE PROGRAMMES

You’ll have the opportunity to go for overseas attachments or study visits to the US, Europe, the UK, Australia, China and other parts of Asia, to help you develop a global mind-set. Through programmes with foreign universities and institutions, you get to exchange ideas with local students and professionals, and gain invaluable insight into international developments and joint project ventures.
 

PARTICIPATION IN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS

NYP students are chalking up a distinct reputation as record breakers in prestigious international competitions like the WorldSkills Competition, Microsoft Imagine Cup, and the FIRA RoboWorld Cup. You are encouraged to benchmark your own knowledge and skills by participating in international competitions to pit yourself against the best, and make your mark on the world.
