NTU Premier Scholars Programmes (PSP), comprising the University Scholars Programme (NTU-USP), Renaissance Engineering Programme (REP), CN Yang Scholars Programme (CNYSP) and NTU-NIE Teaching Scholars Programme (TSP), aim to attract the high-achieving post-secondary students with outstanding co-curricular records, leadership qualities and a strong passion to contribute to society.
These programmes are specially developed for exceptional students who look forward to developing their potential through a high-quality education that goes beyond their regular undergraduate programme and prepares them well for the rising demands of the highly volatile 21st century workplace. On top of a multidisciplinary and broad-based curriculum, these students will also have personal guidance by top faculty, interdisciplinary and intensive research opportunities, overseas exposure, as well as meeting renowned Nobel Laureates and other world class leading scientists, politicians and industry leaders. Students who are under the CNYSP, USP and TSP will, upon their graduation, be awarded a special certificate in addition to their degree certificate. Students may also take up a scholarship from NTU or other organisations as PSP is not a scholarship.
Look no further: embark on an intellectual adventure of a lifetime with one of our Premier Scholars Programmes.

Renaissance Engineering Programme
The Renaissance Engineering Programme (REP) is an integrated, rigorous and fully residential programme with a curriculum that covers a broad spectrum of multidisciplinary subjects bridging Engineering, Business and the Liberal Arts which includes Sciences, Mathematics, Engineering Technology Management, and interdisciplinary studies. This programme includes a one-year overseas experience at a partnering university such as University of California, Berkeley, Imperial College London, Northwestern University or University of British Columbia with an Industrial Orientation in Year 3, and it awards a dual-degree comprising Bachelor of Engineering Science degree (with specialisation in a chosen engineering discipline) and Master of Science in Technology Management in 4.5 years.
CN Yang Scholars Programme
The CN Yang Scholars Programme (CNYSP), named after Professor CN Yang (Nobel Laureate in Physics 1957), is specially designed for exceptional students who have a deep passion for research in science and engineering fields. The programme is highly competitive with only 50 students selected every year. The CNYSP has a rigorous multidisciplinary curriculum that encompasses all branches of science and mathematics. The CNYSP is tailored to provide students with intensive opportunities in research, be it locally or overseas. The CNYSP aims to broaden the scholars’ global research experience by engaging them in the overseas summer research attachment and overseas Final Year Project. At the end of the undergraduate study, CNYSP graduates are given an option to pursue postgraduate study (PhD) with a scholarship in NTU or Joint PhD overseas.
