Law - University Town College Programme (UTCP)

The University Town College Programme (UTCP) is a multidisciplinary academic programme offered in College of Alice & Peter Tan and Tembusu College at University Town. This programme provides an exciting opportunity for students to read electives outside their majors, and pursue other interests while living and learning with the College community.

A distinctive five-module curriculum read over 4.5 semesters, UTCP comprises a Junior Seminar and two Senior Seminars, in addition to two Ideas and Exposition modules which seek to enhance students’ communication skills and prepare them for today’s workplace. Class sizes for these College modules are small, allowing for a rigorous, interactive and highly personalised academic experience. Through this programme, students will be able to develop strategies for clear and impactful writing, sharpen their inquiry and critical reasoning skills, as well as articulate their ideas on issues which are global-Asian in orientation. A host of informal learning activities, such as talks by distinguished visitors, as well as social and sporting activities, complement the formal curriculum.
