Building Your Future

Building Your Future

There is a wealth of experience to be had outside the classroom, and Yale-NUS College’s Centre for International and Professional Experience (CIPE) is poised to help students explore an enriching array of local and global opportunities. CIPE believes that a series of intentional, impactful and engaging experiences will lead to greater personal, professional and intellectual development for Yale-NUS students. This is why each Yale-NUS student has a CIPE advisor to guide them through a portfolio of experiential opportunities, such as: study abroad, summer sessions, internships, career services, leadership and service programming, and research attachments.


Internships are great experiential learning opportunities, and enable you to explore your professional and academic interest. You will also gain valuable exposure and training in your fields on interest, to help equip you with relevant experiences for life after Yale-NUS College. Score internships with a wide array of employers worldwide across the private, public and civic sectors. CIPE strategically partners with organisations seeking the unique skills Yale-NUS students hold: interdisciplinary thought, strong communication skills and the ability to solve complex problems. Work with CIPE to best position yourself for a key internship, whether in Singapore or overseas, practise for interviews and even apply for a Mystery Internship where you’ll find out your posting and location just days before the programme starts.
