The rapid development of the Programme owes much to the strong support from the University, external institutions, and even common Singaporeans who have made generous contributions. This has made possible the establishment of endowment funds and awards which benefit Chinese major students. These include the Shanghai Book Co Scholarship & Bursary Fund, the Wan Boo Sow Award, the Wan Boo Sow Gold Medal cum Cash Award, the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal, and Lotus On Water Gold Medal and Book Prizes.
Do you want to communicate with over one billion people in China, Taiwan, Singapore and many other places around the world?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could order Chinese food in the food court or directly from the menu in a Chinese restaurant?
People say there are many good reasons why you should learn Chinese. If any of these appeal to you, then you should be learning Chinese!
