Applicants for TSP will be considered for MOE Scholarships or Teaching Awards.
Students who are recipients of MOE Scholarships or Awards will automatically be placed on the NTU-NIE Teaching Scholars Programme and with full sponsorship by MOE.
Upon graduation, TSP scholars will receive a Bachelor of Arts (Education) or Bachelor of Science (Education) degree conferred jointly by NTU and NIE.
As a TSP Scholar, you will be provided with a diverse range of student activities that will help build many meaningful and learning experiences which are pertinent in preparing you for a career in teaching. Involvement in the various students’ clubs can help you acquire new skills and foster friendships with your peers that can develop into key social support structures during your time in NIE and beyond.
The TSP Scholar will be provided with guaranteed accommodation in NTU’s Hall of Residences. Scholars from the University’s Premier Scholars Programmes (PSP) will all be housed together in the same hall of residences in their first year to create the environment for greater opportunities to network, be engaged in intellectual exchange and also develop synergistic collaborations with their peers.
The TSP Scholar will have guaranteed placements for Semester Exchange and International Practicum. As part of the TSP advantage, you will get to spend a semester studying abroad in the Semester Exchange programme. For International Practicum, the TSP Scholar is attached to a school abroad for classroom observation and practice at the end of 2nd year of study. As a TSP Scholar, you will also receive generous funding from the Ministry to support such overseas immersion experiences. The funding covers for air travel, accommodation and living expenses, based on Public Service Commission’s guidelines. TSP Scholars are encouraged to undertake Overseas Service Learning. Such Service Learning stint in an overseas country is an opportunity for TSP Scholars to be involved in community service and learning beyond Singapore.
