THE SUMMER CAMP IS BACK!

Designed for high school students (Grade 9 and above), the Summer Camp allows for real-world experiences in a safe, virtual environment.

The first part of the camp is a virtual series of general webinars that cover insightful and interactive sessions with faculty and working professionals on topics like finding one’s passion, finance management for young students, the importance of internship experience for high school students, and many others – all designed to empower you for the future. These will take place over two weeks.

The second part is the Summer Camp Advanced Program, also a virtual series, which will help senior students get a taster of what their potential university subjects of learning could entail since a common challenge faced by high school students is understanding/exploring what course would work well for them.

The advanced program is comprised of three streams for students to choose from Business, IT, and Engineering.

The third part is the highly sought-after Internship Program*, which will be run by various departments- including HR, Marketing and IT, and will involve real-world tasks and projects to work on over 2 weeks. With such high demand, we have limited the slots per department to ensure we apply the same format as our teaching, i.e. to provide personalised attention to a smaller group of students.

*The mode of internship could vary depending on the department.
