Those keen to learn more about the new Yale-NUS College can visit its booth in Hall 2, and attend its talks during the Open House weekend. Yale-NUS is a unique and different residential liberal arts learning experience that draws from the best practices and traditions of Yale University and NUS, and contextualised for Asia in the 21st century. Yale-NUS professors and its admissions team will be on hand to answer queries from prospective students, while mini events such as “Yale-NUS and Your Career” will showcase illustrious alumni from Yale and other liberal arts colleges.
