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.

Anastasia, or Tasha as she is often nicknamed, is a fourth-year undergraduate student at the Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies who dreams to specialize in pediatrics someday. A previous Gaja House Committee member in her first year, she loves being a part of the Gaja community and is excited to give back to it as a Residential Assistant!
She can often be found in the MPH playing tchoukball, of which she used to co-head and would love to introduce anyone to the sport! She also plays dodgeball in the MPH, but you can alternatively find her in her room mulling over her school work, or in Fairprice contemplating her next supper.
Tasha's interests range from playing sports (evidently) to eating good food, studying up on skincare, reading about unsolved mysteries, playing video games (especially Pokémon!), writing, and watching shows. True to the stereotype, she is always available to help with any wound-related injuries or answer questions about them. However, she is also always down for a good chat, or better yet, a good meal at any time of the day. You can talk to her about anything from the weather, to Pokémon fan theories, to existential crises.
