Afternoon blast at the Atrium


The 16th of July 2014 seemed like a normal day to many students at NYP. They woke up early, got ready and went to school. However, when they took the escalator up from the Yio Chu Kang MRT walkway to the NYP Atrium, they received a pleasant surprise. They saw  stage crew around setting up the stage for a Lunchtime Concert organised by the Student Affairs Office.

Meeting The Muttons: A Guest Lecture by Justin Ang and Vernon A

With  the 987 Muttons!
Students from the Diploma in Mass Media Management (DMMM) were treated to a special guest lecture by the Muttons from MediaCorp radio station 987 on 2nd July. The Muttons, whose real names are Justin Ang and Vernon A, won the Best Radio Show for the third straight time at last year’s MediaCorp Radio Awards. They were very open and frank when they answered questions from students and gave insightful tips on how to make it in the radio industry.

Below are some of the questions we asked them after their talk.

Interschool Debate Finals: And the Winner Is.....


The showdown between Germany and Brazil produced one of the World Cup’s final game that everyone is bound to remember. But the month of July 2014 holds a significance of another kind for the School of Business Management.

It was on 9th July 2014, a normal day in Nanyang Polytechnic, with the exception of the North Wing of the Campus where the finals of the Inter-School Debate Competition was going-on. The two teams were defending a topic that has been trending in the News and Social Media: Should only Locals be allowed admission to Universities in Singapore?

Giving Public Members a Glimpse to What NYP Has to Offer

While our students were competing in WorldSkills Singapore 2014, another group of NYP staff members were also busy, during the days of the competition, giving members of the public a glimpse of what NYP has to offer in terms of our courses.

WorldSkills Singapore’s main organiser, ITE, had requested for the polytechnics to set up these booths and workshops in order to attract secondary school and polytechnic students, as well as public members to visit the competition sites.

NYP set up two booths from 10 to 12 July. SIT set up a booth called “Brain Games Powered by Microsoft Office.”  It offered brain teasers and games using Microsoft Office Tools and Applications.

All set and raring to go!
