Experiential Learning

Experiential Opportunities

Learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, and it goes beyond books, lectures and essays. At Yale-NUS, we believe that experiential learning is an integral part of the student experience. Getting outside of the classroom, to put your learning into action, provides a valuable opportunity to gain insights, functional life skills, leadership development and real-life work experience.

Learning Across Boundaries (LABs)

Learning Across Boundaries programmes provide students with hands-on learning experiences outside of the traditional classroom. LABs allow students to explore themes of the curriculum in a broader context. This distinctive faculty-led co-curricular programme is developed by the Centre for International & Professional Experience (CIPE) in collaboration with the Yale-NUS faculty.
