Orientation and Transition

SPMS Hello Day

SPMS's official orientation day, SPMS Hello Day, is organised by the School office and includes the following talks:

  • Welcome talks by Chair and Associate Chairs
  • Division talks about the program curricula
  • Briefings on university life

Integrated within the official orientation program are two student-led orientation programmes, O'Week and SuPreMeS. Freshmen are only required to sign up for either O’Week or SuPreMeS. Freshmen are encouraged to commit fully to the orientation programme they sign up for.

The orientation groups (OGs) will be merged into Houses at the end of the orientation period. There are four Houses in SPMS, each overseen by a House Leader (a faculty member) and a House Captain (a student leader). Freshmen who do not sign up for any orientation programme will be assigned to a House.

For questions or assistance regarding orientation, please email spms-sw@ntu.edu.sg.

Student-Led Orientation Programmes

The O'Week orientation programme has a shorter schedule, and focuses on basic orientation within the school campus. Orientation groups (OGs) are grouped by programmes ie. freshmen will expect fellow OG-mates to be from the same programme eg. all Physics OG.

O'Week Poster (for website)


O’Week is an orientation programme to help SPMS freshmen acclimatize to life in NTU. Through O’Week, freshmen will be able to bond and make new friends through fun and engaging activities. We hope to provide the freshmen with the necessary peer support so that they can fully enjoy their time in NTU. Do look forward to this year's orientation as we have some exciting activities lined up just for you!

Do visit our Instagram (@spms_oweek) or Facebook (SPMS O' Week) to find out more.

The SuPreMeS orientation programme has a slightly longer schedule. Freshmen are grouped across programmes (each OG has a mix of students from Physics, Math and Chemistry), and activities are more challenging and intense. This is the programme for you if you are looking for deep bonds through lots of fun and play. Before 2020, some of SuPreMeS's orientation activities take place around Singapore and outside the NTU campus.
