A key mission of USP is to offer students a range of opportunities to initiate, lead and join international academic and community programmes and projects, so that they get to challenge themselves, become sensitive to, and be familiar with the modern world. Through these opportunities, we hope students can begin making positive impact on the world while still in NUS.
At USP, we set out to create an environment in which our students are self-motivated to learn, grow and effect change. We encourage our students to propose and organise international programmes, as well as take up leadership roles in the process. Students, faculty and the administrative staff get to work hand-in-hand to make substantial and sustainable programmes happen.
Although participation in USP international programmes is not compulsory, they are highly valued by USP students and competition for a place in a programme is the norm.
