Life at USP

The community an undergraduate joins in university can have a direct and significant impact on his or her entire educational experience, future and life. The value of this personal development outside the classroom through the influence of peers and mentors during one's university days cannot be underestimated. For this reason, we place great emphasis on creating a community that is open, collaborative, stimulating, nurturing, and unique to USP. USP students get to interact with peers, alumni, faculty, staff and visitors on a wide range of projects and discussions. They can also take advantage of numerous opportunities to organise or participate in international academic and community programmes, conferences, projects and study trips, amongst other possibilities. Through these, they learn to be sensitive to and familiar with contemporary issues both in Singapore and globally. Engaging with these issues empowers them to already make a difference to the world while still at NUS.
