About National Silver Academy (NSA)

The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) that offer learning opportunities for seniors. Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can look forward to attending:

SHORT COURSES

These courses are in areas which are more life-skills rather than work-skills oriented. These will be beyond the range of part-time courses currently provided by the PSEIs for purposes of work and upgrading. Eligible seniors aged 50 above will receive a subsidy of up to 50% off the course fee.

EXAM-FREE MODULES

These modules are drawn from existing full-qualification programmes offered by ITE, polytechnics and the universities for a token fee. Seniors may attend these modules alongside regular students who are taking these modules for credit i.e. to earn a certificate like a degree or diploma, but while the regular students need to sit for the exams, seniors do not.

AD HOC LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

These are programmes such as the intergenerational learning programme which pairs students with seniors to learn about selected topics. Other programmes include short talks offered by our PSEIs and VWOs targeted at seniors.
