Learning Beyond the Classroom

Extracurricular activities help to develop interest, cultivate team work, and train organizational skills and leadership. The Colleges have a colourful array of such activities. There are interest clubs covering drama, dance, martial arts, and giving speeches. Students can initiate groups of their choice. Those keen on gaining practical experience can join the internship programmes of different industries and in different regions. Those eager to pursue academic research can apply for subsidy from overseas research programmes.
