Nanyang Technological University (NTU) offers a multifaceted global education that prepares students for the working world. With groundbreaking facilities, NTU inspires students to engage fully in their learning environments. The campus is immersed within a metropolitan area and combines academia with community engagement.
The Surrounding Area
Singapore hosts the Sea Aquarium (the second largest in the world) and the lush Gardens by the Bay. Singapore is also a regional gateway to its neighboring Asian countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia. The lion city prides itself on its amalgamation of languages, traditions, ideas, and history.
Student Life extends beyond the classroom; NTU’s campus is an effervescent mini-city. You can easily satisfy your cultural curiosities with the sights and rich tastes of Singapore. On campus, The Hive is a brand new and bustling 24-hour learning hub with state of the art facilities. The Hive represents NTU’s experimental pedagogy approach: a flipped classroom. The flipped classroom challenges students to learn in teams, investigating and evaluating issues and taking control of their own learning.
The Student Activities Centre (SAC) and Global Lounge offer relaxation zones, a dance studio, billiards, foosball, video games and wide screen televisions. NTU’s devotion to learning transfers to their understanding of the importance for students to unwind.
