Our Students

Our students share how NUS’ Transformative Science Education has enriched their learning journeys.

“The course teaches me how to crunch data to obtain valuable insights, visualise data and communicate my findings to non-specialist audiences. These skills will help me to harness data and use it as a tool to predict outcomes, for optimising business processes.”

Data Science and Analytics, Year 2

“Through the Special Programme in Science, I undertook research in a mentored setting and participated as a team to win in the International Natural Sciences Tournament 2018 in Agra, India. This was a highlight of my learning journey.”

KIM Mu Young
Physics, Year 3

“My NUS Overseas Colleges experience exposed me to the vibrant startup scene in Israel. I had the opportunity to attend networking events, meet people, and even conducted interviews on the streets to validate my business venture. I learnt how to bring my ideas across effectively. I also found a keen interest in biochemistry and biotechnology from my internship with Semorex Technologies Ltd.”

TEO Xin Yu Ruth
Chemistry, Class of 2018

“I was able to pursue academic interests in areas not offered by NUS, such as the classics, anthropology and archaeology. It was an invaluable opportunity to stretch my intellectual horizons.”

Dexter THNG
Life Sciences, Year 4

“The Faculty of Science is one of the best in the world. I chose to major in statistics as I see Big Data as the next big thing. I wanted to learn how to manage voluminous information and to dissect and understand the data collected.”

Statistics, Year 4

“My course furthers my passion for food and nutrition. I also help consumers to make informed dietary decisions, which have a positive impact on their lives. This is an enriching learning experience which gives me a sense of fulfilment.”

Clement CHAN
Food Science and Technology, Year 4

“The Faculty offers many interesting modules, supplementing my knowledge to prepare for a career in environmental studies. The curriculum is a good blend of laboratory work and fieldwork, where I collect and analyse data, and develop further research based on my findings.”

Environmental Studies, Year 3

“The rigorous curriculum pushes boundaries in learning. Small classes and the pedagogies encourage the exchange of ideas, while interactions with my professors and peers allow me to form meaning relationships with them.”

KONG Qi Herng
Pharmaceutical Sciences, Year 1

“The curriculum at the Faculty has given me a deeper appreciation of what mathematics is at its core and its wide application in areas such as modelling, finance and programming in the world. I hope to be able to use the knowledge I gained to inspire my future students to become more passionate and interested in the subject.”

YEO Heu Ming Jeremy
Applied Mathematics and Chemistry, Year 3

“The major in Quantitative Finance not only builds a solid foundation in our mathematical knowledge and analytical skills, but also covers essential financial concepts applicable in the industry. It is a good head-start for students aspiring to start a career in finance.”

CHEN Naixian
Quantitative Finance, Year 3

“The Faculty encourages independent learning and has provided me many opportunities to develop my interests and venture into a niche yet demanding field. The well-structured Computational Biology programme nurtures competent students for the bioinformatics field.”
