Student Exchange Programme

Student Exchange Programme – Let’s go!

Student Exchange Programme offers a lot of great opportunities to students. It allows the students to gain an enriching experience yet learn something valuable from it. Temasek Polytechnic(TP) supports and helps fund needy students with the ‘Temasek Polytechnic Education Fund’ to travel and benefit from these overseas student exchange programmes. TP students can also use their PSEA to help fund their trips as well. TP believes in global exposure to their students to provide them with the opportunities to gain valuable life and educational experiences. Thus, Engineering School has been sending different courses to different countries for study trips and internships programmes.

BZE offers an exciting student exchange programme and the country which we always visit is Japan. BZE has always been actively participating in it, whereby the Japanese students will visit Singapore and vice versa. When the Japanese students visit Singapore, BIZEN club will host them with exciting activities and bring them around Singapore for a tour. Such activities include fun games organised to help bond between the Japanese and BIZEN students. They will also be brought around Singapore and visit interesting places such as Chinatown, Bugis Street, Little India, Zoo and more! This serves as a form of cultural exchange where they learn more about Singapore’s culture and lifestyle. The exchange programme also goes out to the BZE students (which is us) and they get to travel to Japan to learn more about their culture and lifestyle as well. However, the sole purpose of their trip is to understand their culture and how Japanese work in their engineering and business sector. The Japanese students there will act as host to us and fun games will also be organised by them as well!

Through past experiences with different batches of students, they will be so closely bonded throughout the journey that typically, they will be in tears when it is time for them to leave for their own country. This shows the strong friendships and bonds forged between them, and even up till now, some students are still keeping in contact with their new found friends! Students that are able to participate in the student exchange programme in BZE or TP will never regret and gain an unforgettable experience! I cannot wait for this and so will you!
