Meet the World @ NTU
The opportunities and facilities for students to interact and partake in activities on campus are abundant.  Many students have grasped such opportunities available to them and they have gone on to be leaders amongst the students and contributed actively in community services. We invite all students to contribute to this rich and fascinating milieu of cultures and ideas at NTU, and to join us in creating a community that welcomes and celebrates diversity. 

The Inclusion & Integration team coordinates a variety of programmes to promote international fraternity and they include:

  Orientation Briefings
A comprehensive and specially designed orientation programme to provide international students with the practical and pertinent information for a successful start. These talks incorporate presentations by various speakers, covering topics such as health and wellness, insurance, counselling and more. New international students are informed of the services available to them and they get to know that help is at hand to assist them adjust academically and socially.
     
  Coffee Sessions
These popular gatherings of students are held regularly on weekday afternoons with complimentary food. No two sessions are alike as each session revolves around a different theme and features a different set of activities. If you would like to show case your country at a coffee session, please email SAOstudentsupport@ntu.edu.sg.
     
  Festive Open Houses
Festive open houses are held for all to enjoy the festivities of the Lunar New Year, Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Diwali and Christmas. Apart from knowing our local festivities and cultures, you may also made new friends during these events and widen your social network. Keep a lookout for our email invitations to attend these Open Houses.
     
 

Host Family Programme
The Host Family Programme pairs NTU staff/student/alumni with NTU students, allowing both groups to better understand each other’s culture and customs by opening their home to NTU students for a festive meal during festive occasions such as Deepavali, Christmas, Lunar New Year, Mid-Autumn festival, Hari Raya Puasa or Vesak Day, or even spend time with their families during weekend outings, grocery shopping or family meals at hawker centres, etc. It is a great opportunity to connect and network with other NTU students who participate in the programme.

If you, as an alumni, are keen to participate as a Host, please register your interest HERE . Upon registration, you will receive more details including an application form about the programme via email to you.

For enquiries, you may contact: SAOstudentsupport@ntu.edu.sg, Student Affairs Office.

     
  Luncheons
During lunchtime, it is a great opportunity to get away from classes to network and interact with other NTU students over a meal. Each luncheon revolves around a different theme, and different cuisine. Invited NTU clubs and societies share their interest during the Luncheons, offering the NTU students a chance to learn and have fun during the event. If your club/society is keen to collaborate with SAO, please email SAOstudentsupport@ntu.edu.sg.
     
  Community Outreach Programmes
Students are given the opportunity to experience life outside of the university's walls, and give back to the community through service projects.  We work closely with other community service organisations to engage our students in community and welfare programmes and if you are interested in volunteering with any of our programmes, please keep a lookout for our email invitations.
