At TP School of Business, we firmly believe in giving our students holistic learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom--through experiences that are real, relevant and rewarding. Apart from structured curriculum input, we also line up a series of activities for our students throughout the year. These activities range from study trips to community projects, and learning festivals to competitions to hone skills and expand knowledge.
Study trips offer unique, experience-enriched learning, connecting schoolwork with the real world. Students gain insights into the workings of industry through industry-specific trips to far- flung destinations such as South Africa, USA, New Zealand and the UK. From these trips come a broader perspective of various fields of study, and exposure to the intricacies of working in a global setting.
Temasek Polytechnic’s strong community culture often extends beyond the boundaries of our campus. Our students engage in many meaningful projects, reaching out to the larger community to help raise awareness for worthy causes. Supported by core competencies in our curriculum, these projects have allowed out students to experience joy from giving back to the community.
