“The SPOT journey has definitely enriched me with skills that cannot be learnt through classroom activities. I am really fortunate to be part of SPOT and SPOT is definitely one of the reasons that has made my learning in SP memorable and exciting!”
Nur Isyana Binte Isaman | (SP Scholar) | Graduate of Diploma in Media & Communication, 2012

“SPOT is like an exciting roller-coaster ride with many thrilling elements. It launches one high up into the skies to explore the world from different perspectives; it dives deep into the ground for an authentic experience of reality, and gives one a full spectrum of exposure along the breathtaking ride.  Being a SPOT student goes beyond achieving stellar academic results, flying around the globe or attending high-profile conferences. It is about embarking on an enriching journey to learn and be nurtured as a well-rounded leader with a keen sense of empathy.  The unique, holistic approaches of the SPOT programme have molded me into a confident, sharp and fun individual.”
