The Christieara Programme
​​​At Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP), every student gets to create their own success story. 

While NP Youth Academy was set up to provide every student in NP the opportunity to benefit from the enrichment programmes as extra top-up beyond academic pursuits, The Christieara Programme (TCP) is a talent development programme designed to stretch the potential of high performing students.

TCP students have obtained impressive achievements, winning prestigious scholarships and securing places in renowned universities.

To-date, NP has a total of 9 Public Service Commission (PSC) scholars. In 2012, Woo Wan Fong was awarded the PSC scholarship to study Politics, Psychology & Sociology at Cambridge University.  Fanny Koh clinched the same scholarship to read Liberal Arts at Sarah Lawrence University in United States.

Notable achievements in 2011 include Leow Yi Ning, the first diploma holder to be 
awarded​ the National Science Scholarship from A*STAR for undergraduate studies in Neuroscience at University College London. She will be completing her PhD at MIT. In the same year, Germaise Tan Jiang Ling became the first polytechnic graduate to be awarded a Ministry of Social & Family Development Scholarship to read Psychology at the University of Bath.

In TCP, students can expect to embark on an exciting journey of self-discovery and holistic development.  Here are some highlights:

TCP Induction Camp

This TCP Induction Camp enables students to discover and challenge themselves to achieve excellence in personal effectiveness and leadership skills. Students will have a chance to engage with the community and acquire skills to be more global ready.


A series of workshops including current affairs and scholarship application clinics that aim to stretch our students intellectually and give them the added edge when applying for jobs, university places and undergraduate scholarships.


Dialogue sessions with Ministers and industry leaders are organised to offer students valuable insights into global affairs, national issues and industry developments.

Overseas Service Learning Trips

Through overseas service learning trips to Philippines, Thailand and Laos, students learn to reach out to underprivileged communities and acquire cross-cultural skills and awareness. The trips also offer plenty of opportunities to strengthen students' character, discipline and resilience.

Overseas Merit Fellowship

The Overseas Merit Fellowship (OMF) is the prestigious flagship programme of TCP. Selected groups of students embark on a 19-day liberal arts programme in distinguished overseas universities in United States, Denmark or New Zealand.

Besides NP scholarship recipients, students who have outstanding academic results will be invited to join the TCP after semester 1, 2 and 3.
