The NTU Short Term Summer Programme opens up fascinating Asian cultural experiences and opportunities and at the same time equips you with key entrepreneurial skills for a venture into Asia.

Conducted by the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, this track consists of courses in creative writing, design and media.

Creative Writing courses focus on the various genres of poetry, prose and film as the students recreate and tell their own Asian and Singapore journeys through writing, editing, and new media production tasks. 

The courses in the Creative Design and Media track will be conducted over four weeks in July at the NTU campus. Each course carries 3 academic units (AU). Students can select up to two courses from the track. Proof of English proficiency is required for students taking any of the courses in this track.

Xinyue - 2018

In the programme, I made a lot of friends in the same classes and NTU's activities. It is really good to meet different people from different countries and backgrounds. The courses I chose made me pay more attention to details in life and discover the wonderful things by myself.
