Tembusu College’s motto The Home of Possibilities, means we value the development of each individual according to her or his own path through life. At the same time we are a learning community, which seeks to give students an intense experience in a nurturing environment. The college administers (and awards certificates for) the prestigious University Town College Programme (UTCP), which augments students’ regular degree programmes by emphasising breadth, critical thinking, and exposure to inter-disciplinary thinking. Our curriculum includes both seminars and out-of-classroom learning experiences.
The college is not themed. Diversity is an important part of our ethos, and we offer learning opportunities across a broad spectrum of interests. We do, however, have particular areas of strength, which are reflected in the backgrounds of our faculty.
A home away from home, the Tembusu College community is 21 storeys of collegiate spirit known for its friendly and welcoming culture.
Wake up or wind down through casual conversations with your Fellows and peers over meals at the Dining Hall. Sweat it out over sports at the Multi Purpose Hall. Huddle with like-minded individuals at one of the many Student-run Interest Groups & Student-Initiated Projects or start your own. Let loose or let your creativity flow in the well furnished Student Spaces. Be our Student Partners and contribute to the College community.
Need career advice? Stressed? Need help on personal issues? Or simply want catch up with friendly members of our Residential Team? We're here for you.
Tembusu College is much more than a home; it's a Home of Possibilities.
Master Gregory Clancey wins 2012 Morison Prize

A/P Gregory Clancey Prize Lecture: Telling Stories about Technology in an Asian Century
The Morison Prize in Science, Technology, and Society (STS) recognizes the accomplishments of an individual who has made major contributions at the interface between science and technology on the one hand and matters of societal concern on the other. It was endowed by the family of the late Professor Elting Morison, a renowned historian who helped found the STS Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the 1970s.
Associate Professor Gregory Clancey, who received his PhD from MIT in 1999, was awarded the prize for his scholarly work on the history of technology in Asia (especially Japan) and the US, and for his efforts as a programme builder at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the Asia Research Institute and Tembusu College – all at NUS.
On 11 May, Master Clancey was at MIT to deliver the Morison Prize Lecture. It was titled “Telling Stories about Technology in an Asian Century”.
