S’poreans react to NTU setting up a new college with NTUC

Posted on 02 May 2016

Three thoughts you must have had.


Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has set up a new college for working adults with the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) called the College of Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE).

The new school will develop 28 undergraduate-level courses for part-time study that will include those for professionals, managers and executives (PMEs).

It starts this August. Classes will be held at NTU or in NTUC premises around the city.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “All along I suspected the two entities were linked. Guess I was right.”
Da Xue Sheng, 44-year-old diploma holder


sian-half-uncle “It’s nice to see graduates qualify as cashiers these days.”
Shou Qian, 67-year-old supermarket assistant


happy-bird-girl “It’s as if NTU does not already have an image problem these days.”
Sing Xiang, 18-year-old pool parlour assistant
