New Curriculum

NTU is transforming its education objectives towards more interdisciplinarity and collaborative learning for the foundation years of its undergraduate curriculum. A new interdisciplinary and collaborative curriculum will be introduced in the academic year of 2021 to develop students’ cognitive agility, competence, and character, besides their disciplinary major. This new curriculum consists of a set of 7 core courses which will form part of the overall degree requirement in all NTU undergraduate programmes. The courses will be concentrated over the first two years of study comprising mixed classes of students from different disciplinary programmes, so that they can embrace multidisciplinary group learning as part of the overall academic expectation from the start of their university education. Students will collaborate in different teams for their course projects or assignments.

Content for the 7 common core courses is developed by a diverse mix of faculty and integrated to understand issues from various perspectives. Aligned with the learning outcomes of the desired attributes of an NTU graduate, the courses are curated to focus on key transferable skills and the global challenges of the modern world. The courses will adopt the flipped classroom and collaborative learning pedagogy, with content made available prior to classes, to facilitate collaborative discussion through group-based activities during class time.
