The Nanyang Technological University Graduate Student Council (NTUGSC) is the elected representative body of the graduate student community in Nanyang Technological University and is supported by the Students Affairs Office (SAO).

Originally registered as the NTU Graduate Students’ Club on 2 September 2010 as a culmination of months of preparation and soul searching by members of the pro-tem committee, the Club was a small volunteer group promoting and organising social, recreational, cultural and sporting activities among the graduate students. In the process, the Club has migrated to a Council and has come to serve as a critical link between graduate students, the undergraduate student community and the university administration. The Council has taken initiatives in advancing the concerns and welfare issues of the graduate student community to the administration.

The council represents the interests of graduate students and raises their issues to the university administration with the purpose of seeking ways to resolve them, organizes orientation programmes for new graduate students, tries to improve the graduate student life on campus by planning and organizing activities and events, which may not be limited to just social, recreational, sporting, cultural, educational, and career related purposes and works to foster a strong and meaningful relationship between the graduate and the undergraduate student population, faculty, staff, and administrators.

In a short time span, the Council has not only grown bigger and obtained a formal structure, but also has expanded its functionalities and objectives to incorporate diverse spectra of concerns of graduate student life. Some of the objectives of the Council include:

  • Representing the interests of graduate students and raising their issues to the university administration with the purpose of seeking ways to resolve them
  • Organizing orientation programmes for new graduate students
  • Improving the graduate student life on campus by planning and organising activities and events, which may not be limited to just social, recreational, sporting, cultural, educational, and career related purposes.
  • Fostering a strong and meaningful relationship between the graduate and the undergraduate student population, faculty, staff, and administrators
