“A Little Closer to Home” -- that is the mission of the International Friendship Club (IFC), whose membership comprises Singaporeans and international students from all over the world. Most of the IFC members are international students from Malaysia, China, Myammar, Indonesia, the Philippines, Taiwan, among others. However, the IFC focuses on promoting awareness of diverse cultures, opening its doors to all NYP students regardless of nationality or ethnicity.
The IFC organises events that mostly focus on integrating and fostering greater bonding among international students as well as with local students. The International Students Orientation is an annual event organised by IFC under the supervision of the Office for the International Students (OIS). Through this orientation, both Singaporean and international students in their freshmen year learn more about NYP and Singapore through a host of interactive and engaging programmes.
