General Studies Modules (GSM)

To provide an all-rounded educational experience for all students in NYP, NYP offers General Studies Modules (GSMs). This means that besides studying your core diploma modules relating to your chosen area of discipline, you will have the opportunity to be exposed to other areas beyond your field of study. Through taking a combination of prescribed and elective inter-disciplinary GSMs during your diploma course, you will gain interesting and valuable knowledge of many other areas important in your development as an NYP student. We hope you will also find this knowledge gained from GSMs practical and beneficial to you as you prepare for the world of work and life after graduation.
