An environment where education is about developing aptitudes and interests, and celebrating successes beyond grades.
Every student has opportunities to discover and stretch to his or her full potential.
Learning Beyond the Classroom
Education isn’t confined to a classroom or schedule anymore.An immersive experience for every student to learn by doing in the industry and community, and hone an interdisciplinary and global mindset. Every NP student experiences service-learning to apply the skills and knowledge from their course to create solutions that benefit the community.
Rooted in values. We take pride in instilling Ngee Ann’s core values of respect, responsibility, resilience, integrity, compassion and gratitude, or in short, R3ICG. Our students are encouraged to live out these values by considering the needs of others, and making a contribution to the society.
Innovation & Enterprise
Creativity flourishes here. An Entrepreneurship Programme allows students to develop their business ideas during curriculum time. A campus ecosystem to experiment ideas and target start-ups and innovative companies running pilots, prototypes and trials using our campus as a testbed. But that’s not all – students can join the Global Entrepreneurial Internship Programme to experience the realities of startup life at leading innovation hubs such as Silicon Valley, Jakarta and Shanghai.
