News & Events
Almost every week, members of Tembusu College are invited to meet and chat with guests - both local and international - through a variety of hosted events. There is a huge diversity of backgrounds amongst our visitors, who range from politicians to diplomats, artists, writers, poets, and academics. Select an event category on the left to find out more.
Our events and members of our community are also frequently featured by the Press and Media. Visit the Newsroom to read the reports.
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.
Summer module with USP on Participatory Social Development in Southeast Asia
April 15, 2013
This summer, during Special Term 2 (June 24 - August 3), a few Tembusu students will have the opportunity to take part in the module “Participatory Social Development in Southeast Asia” (USE2315). This USP module includes a fieldtrip to Chiang Mai, and involves working under the guidance of Dr Peter Vail from the University Scholars Programme, and together with USP students, students from Chiang Mai University's Regional Center for Social Sciences and Sustainable Development, and possibly also students from the College of Alice & Peter Tan.
Students will be selected through an application process, in which they submit a CV and a cover letter explaining their interests in the course. If demand is strong, applicants may be subject to an interview process. Given that the module includes an overseas trip, there will be costs involved, but Tembusu College will provide a subsidy for Tembusu students who have been selected to take part.
For more information and to apply, please go to the USP website: http://usp.nus.edu.sg/curriculum/modules/soc-eco-pol/use2315/index.html
Application will be reviewed as they come in, so the sooner you apply, the better. The closing date for applications is May 15.
