Learning took on a new meaning at NP with the launch of Service-Learning as our signature pedagogy in 2016. Every NP student is exposed to at least one Service-Learning module where they apply their course skills and knowledge to tackle real-life issues in the community. Our goal is to deepen our students’ learning and inspire them to become a force for good in society.
In short — we provide our leaders of tomorrow the knowledge and experience to make a better world today!
For more Service-Learning opportunities, students can also take up a civic internship, a Minor in Social Leadership under NP’s Personalised Learning Pathway programme, participate in an overseas Youth Expedition Project, or opt for a Capstone Service-Learning project!
NP partners with many organisations across industries, in curating Service-Learning opportunities for our students. Resorts World Sentosa is one of them and here’s what they have to say about our collaboration.
“Nurturing the next generation of talent who can help shore up our nation’s sustainability drive is imperative. Through the Sustainability@RWS programme in collaboration with NP, we aim to firstly, boost awareness and practical understanding of sustainable tourism amongst students today, who can in turn drive positive impact tomorrow and secondly, play our part in driving sustainability education and advocacy amongst all our stakeholders. This aligns to our broader ambition of creating positive environmental and socio-economic impact for the communities in which we operate.”

- 500 NP Students embark on Service-Learning or YEP trips annually
- Up to 25 trips each year
- 9 countries - Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam
Civic Internships allow our students to work in socially responsible workplaces, and apply their skills and knowledge to promote social good. While this develops them to become work-ready professionals, it also nurtures them to become advocates who help build a better world.
Currently some 100 organisations and companies are on board as our Civic Internship partners. Interested in signing up for Civic Internship? Click here (sign in and password required) to explore the internship positions available for the current semester and find your fit.
