Nanyang Research Programme (NRP)

The Nanyang Research Programme (NRP) is offered to JC1 students in Junior Colleges (JCs) and Year 5 students in Integrated Programme (IP) Schools.

The NRP offers a variety of research topics from NTU’s four Colleges – College of Engineering, College of Science, College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences, and College of Business – as well as the National Institute of Education. It seeks to offer students with a keen interest in and aptitude for research the opportunity to engage in the process of intellectual inquiry by undertaking projects in a real research environment under the supervision of NTU faculty, scientists and researchers.
