The SPMS experience doesn't end when you step out of the lecture theatre or tutorial room. We have a vibrant student community with numerous events and activities to explore. Incoming freshmen get to enjoy an exciting Orientation and Transition programme organised by a team of dedicated staff and student volunteers.
Our Student Welfare team is dedicated to giving all students the support they need for a
happy and rewarding university experience. We also provide career planning resources
to assist SPMS students in starting their future careers.
As a proud SPMS graduate, you will always be a part of our community. We host a variety of alumni events throughout the year, from movie nights to social mixers.
It's never too late to take the opportunity to get back in touch with your former course-mates, and chat with your favorite professors!
Safety is an integral part of life and work at the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and we are committed to ensuring that all research and educational activities are performed in a safe and proper way.
