Internationalisation Programme

With the emphasis on developing 21st Century Competencies (21CC) in our students and the recognition that schools’ internationalisation efforts can strongly support the Desired Outcomes of Education, our college organizes various overseas trips to broaden our students’ experiences and deepen their learning.

The objectives of PJC’s Internationalisation Programme are as follows:

  • Develop in our students the 21CC of global awareness and cross-cultural skills. 
  • Expose students to Asia and the world so as to increase their knowledge and sensitivity to cultures different from their own. 
  • Deepen students’ commitment and rootedness to Singapore. 
  • Enrich and support academic learning and co-curricular activities. 

Financial support will be given to Singaporean students by MOE under the TRIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE (TIE) Fund. Students could also utilize Edusave grant to fund the trip. Needy students could apply additional financial support through the college, subject to approval.
