Premier Scholars Programmes

NTU Premier Scholars Programmes (PSP) are offered to high-achieving post-secondary students with outstanding co-curricular records, leadership qualities and a strong passion to contribute to society. PSP is not a scholarship programme but you may also consider taking up a scholarship from NTU or other organisations.

If you are an exceptional student who looks forward to developing your potential through high-quality education that goes beyond a regular undergraduate programme and you are getting prepared for the rising demands of the highly volatile 21st century workplace, one of our NTU Premier Scholars Programmes may be for you.

NTU Premier Scholars Programmes available:

  • University Scholars Programme (NTU-USP)
  • Renaissance Engineering Programme (REP)
  • CN Yang Scholars Programme (CNYSP)
  • NTU-NIE Teaching Scholars Programme (TSP)
