NSA-web-banner-horiz

The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) that offer learning opportunities for seniors. Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can look forward to attending:

Audit Mode (Exam-free) Modules

These modules are drawn from existing full-qualification programmes for a token fee. Seniors may attend these modules alongside regular students who are taking these modules for credit (i.e. to earn a certificate like a degree or diploma); however, regular students need to sit for the exams, seniors do not.
