Non-Academic Services

I&AE works with different stakeholders to ensure that students with disabilities and special needs are able to receive relevant support to make their learning journey successful. The following are some non-academic support services provided by I&AE.


Transition Support

I&AE conducts mobility and orientation for students with mobility challenges (wheelchair users and vision loss) to help them familiarise with the NTU campus so that they are able to navigate around campus independently. Whenever necessary, I&AE will work with caregivers, therapists, medical doctors, and teachers to prepare students with disabilities and special needs to transit from junior colleges or polytechnics into NTU.


Industrial Attachment & Internship

I&AE collaborates with the Career & Attachment Office (CAO) and SG Enable to work with employers on internship and career opportunities for students with special needs. 


Barrier-Free Access

I&AE works in collaboration with the Office of Development and Facilities Management (ODFM) to ensure that students with mobility challenges are able to access classrooms and facilities with minimal assistance.


Special Arrangements for Halls of Residence

I&AE and the Office of Campus Housing (OCH) identify accessible halls of residence and prioritise accommodation for students with disabilities and special needs. 


Dedicated Accessible Transport Service

An accessible transport service is available for students with mobility challenges (permanent or temporary) to travel around NTU campus during semester time.


Inclusive Activities

I&AE partners with student organisations on inclusive activities for students with special needs to explore new interests. Past activities include inclusive archery and pottery.


Lifeskills Training

Training sessions are organised throughout the academic year to equip students with skills such as time management, decision making and organisational skills.
