General Studies Modules (GSM)

To give you an all-rounded education and allow you to go beyond your chosen area of specialisation, NYP offers a range of General Studies Modules (GSMs) during your three years of study here. These cover a wide selection of topics, with the aim of giving you exposure to other areas of interest. Through a combination of prescribed and elective interdisciplinary GSMs, you will pick up interesting and practical knowledge that will benefit you as you prepare for your future.

Learn more about the GSMs offered in each year of your study by selecting the tabs below.


In Year 3, you can choose to study a maximum of two elective General Studies modules. Select courses outside of your school to build your knowledge in areas beyond your field of specialisation. 

Physical Fitness & Training (15 hours)

This module is tailored for Year 3 students who are headed for National Service after they graduate from NYP. Our fitness programmes are specially designed for PES A/B students to learn how to train and perform at the various stations of the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT). Students will be split into groups according to their physical abilities and encouraged to train and achieve their best score.


Students who have failed or did not take the pre-test IPPT in March must take this course.

Elective Modules (15 hours)

Select two elective General Studies modules from a pool of interesting classes offered by our schools. Modules offered may change from semester to semester.
