CIE International Exchange Programme with Temasek Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Singapore
25 June – 27 July 2018
This is the second round of the outbound exchange programme held between CIE and the two partner intuitions in Singapore, namely, Temasek Polytechnic and Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Nineteen CIE students from various Concentration Studies of Division of Social Sciences and Business joined the exchange programme to make the most of their summer vacation.
During their time in Singapore, students were immersed in the multi-ethnic and multi-racial environment of Singapore where they could develop intercultural competency and make new friends from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Besides, CIE students had to participate in various projects, attend lectures and professional training to maximize their exposure on the industries relating to their disciplines during their stay. It was a challenge for all of them to learn how to adapt to a new environment with different academic culture.
In short, the exchange programme had greatly enhanced the personal growth of students. They have become more independent through the process of self-discovery and overcoming difficulties.
