"Broadened perspectives & critical thinking. The NTU-USP education is built to challenge each student’s domain of expertise. The programme will test your creativity and encourage you to synergise multitudes of seemingly disparate branches of knowledge. In short, you are trained for 4 years to look beyond, and make the impossible, possible. The best part: you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals with the passion and eagerness to make sense of this complex world."

"While the scholarship offers impressive monetary benefits, I benefited most from the programme's ability to bring together a group of intelligent, like-minded, and driven individuals. It forged a community that felt very much like home. It provided a network and sounding board to call upon, when needed. Most importantly, being around my peers - many of whom are more talented and accomplished than I am - inspired daily self-reflection and improvement. It pushed me to strive for more. 4 years later, I can safely say I have achieved more today because of NTU-USP."

"​The NTU-USP has been the perfect programme that supplemented my university education. As an engineering student, core courses such as writing & reasoning, and ethics were initially challenging. However they were crucial in developing critical thinking skills and broadening my perspective towards life. Furthermore, the seminar-style classes facilitated in-depth discussion with my professors and friends. This allowed me to forge strong camaraderie amongst students from different faculties. This programme has definitely exceeded my expectations in all aspects and I would highly recommend all students who are looking for an academically-stimulating programme to join the NTU-USP family."

"To me, the NTU-USP is much more than just an academic programme. There is a strong student-driven culture where NTU-USPians are encouraged to pursue their own initiatives, allowing plenty of opportunities for personal development. The many unique opportunities offered by the NTU-USP, as well as the close-knit community, has added much to the vibrancy of my university experience."

"The NTU-USP experience has stretched my intellectual capacity and broadened my perspectives of the world – well beyond the scope of my engineering degree. Of all, I am utmost thankful to be part of a student community which is highly self-driven, capable and very supportive. My peers have continuously inspired me to strive for greater success in university and beyond."

"Being part of NTU-USP is one of my greatest takeaway from my 4 years in NTU. Each course challenges the mind to think critically and creatively, often beyond our comfort zones. The strong emphasis on teamwork is where we learn to work robustly with people from diverse disciplines, an essential skill to have and also the basis where many (lifelong) friendships are forged! If you are invited to apply, go for it!"

"Given the diversity of the modules offered, it has help to train me to view a problem from multiple angles. Also, it has helped to broaden my interest into other disciplinary fields such as philosophy and drama which I have never expect myself to be attracted by such discussion since my background training was more inclined to science and engineering. Furthermore, as I am pursuing my postgraduate studies Masters in Epidemiology, my exposure to social sciences and ethics will serve as a good complement to the statistical training at Imperial for my future career at the Ministry of Health."

"The NTU-USP has nurtured me to think with a global perspective, with the ability to think broader and out of the box which is an essential skill in the workforce.

Beyond academic knowledge, I learned life skills which are transferable and applicable in different circumstances. With valuable opportunities to work independently, as well as with many peers across different specialisations, I am groomed to adapt fast and communicate effectively with colleagues and clients of different nature."

​"NTU-USP has provided me with a great platform to stretch myself beyond the limits of my academic discipline. The rigour of the NTU-USP courses poses both as a challenge and an opportunity to explore new knowledge frontiers and has also shaped the way I approach certain worldviews or ideas. What made the NTU-USP journey more enriching was the amicable faculty members who were never hesitant in ensuring that we would benefit as much from courses. I would encourage individuals with a passion for learning to join our NTU-USP family, and experience first-hand this warm and nurturing academic adventure!"
