HR OF CIVIL SERVICE ONLY WANTS NUS AND NTU GRADS?

I am writing to voice my displeasure over some civil service HR department to what I feel is a very discriminatory practice. This is about the hiring of fresh graduates. I notice that the HR of civil service are only really open to graduates that comes from the NUS and NTU.

I know that NUS and NTU are the crown jewel of the Singapore education system. But, for those students who did not make it to the top two local universities, we still try hard to earn that degree through sheer hard work. It does not mean that if our degree comes from a private university, or a foreign university, or even the other local universities , we are less capable. Maybe it took us a longer and different route to reach the degree path, but we study just as hard.

NUS STUDENT COMPLAINS OF GETTING "HARASSED" BY CHRISTIANS IN SCHOOL

I have nothing against Christians, but I have been hounded by members of the NUS christian society at least 4 times in the past fortnight, and I feel very harassed by them. When I say I am a free-thinker, they say something to the effect of "still, we'd like to share about God and the bible" and continue on for at least a good 15 minutes. One pair even replied in a condescending tone of "I hope God will make you become a believer" after being told I'm not interested.

LOCAL UNIVERSITIES TO ALLOW ARTS AND SPORTS TALENT JOIN THEIR ELITE RANKS

Good to know that even though Singapore places its values on grades, there are still avenues to get a place in our local universities if you are talented enough in your chosen field, such as the arts and sports. This will only encourage students that being creative and good in their other fields are also ways to get to that dream degree of theirs. After all, why should grades be the end all and be all for everything?

POOR STUDENTS HAVE MUCH SLIMMER CHANCE OF UNI EDUCATION THAN WELL-TO-DO STUDENTS

The system in this country (be it education or social) is set up in such a manner that children from the rich parents will gets the best education presently more than 80% of students in the SAP schools comes from rich family background) and more than 60% of undergraduates in the local universities (NUS & NTU) coming from higher middle class to the elite class. Students from poor family will have slim chance to be in the university (it's not due to the affordability issue but due to poor grade which were imposed to them by virtue of the handicap they're facing.

NUS SAILING TEAM SLAMMED FOR TAKING HOME PROTECTED GIANT CLAM SHELL

Papers today reported that a National University of Singapore (NUS) sailing trip, organised as an experiential learning initiative, has come under scrutiny after photos of students posing with giant clam shells collected during trip drew flak online.

Environmental groups and researchers pointed out that the giant clam is a protected species under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (Cites), and that proper permits are needed before any animal parts can be imported across borders, even if these are dead clam shells. Removal of other shells that had washed ashore could also be a threat to the eco-system.

NUS 4TH IN THE WORLD FOR MOST INTERNATIONAL UNI. FT TAKING OVER OUR STUDENT NUMBERS

Our very own NUS has been named by the Times Higher Education as the fourth most international university!

The ranking takes into account a university's proportions of international students, international staff and journal publications with at least one international co-author. The ranking also takes into account the universities' international reputation. What this means is that even though it is true that NUS has a very well-thought of education reputation in the world, they also have a very high proportion of foreign students to domestic students. What this makes it to see to the average man on the street is that this seems like our very own top university is pulling in more and more international students, while our students from the local polytechnics find it hard to get a place in the university.

NUS CRACKDOWNS ON PERVERTS, ORIENTATION CAMPS CAN ONLY FEATURE CLEAN ACTIVITIES NOW

NUS have finally came out with their guidelines that bars activities of a negative nature in their freshman camps. In their own words, the NUS indcated that they have implemented a new framework that bars activities with "negative features" from its freshman orientation camps that caused a public outcry last year.

All these were a direct result of the public outcry against the activities these students were forced to carry out, which included acting our rape scenes, and doing other sexually suggestive activities. Wonder why the student leaders came out with such activities in the first place. Are universities here developing students who have a natural tendency towards perverted sexual thoughts? Surely planning activities with sexual intentions in them and thinking this is all in the name of fun are signs of a perverted society.
