From Building Ideas To Building Companies

Ever wondered what it’s like working in a start-up? To explore potential business ideas and get into the thick of building a company? You’ll get the opportunity to experience this and more with the NUS Overseas Colleges (NOC) internship.

So What’s In It For You?


Live, Think & Breathe Start-Ups

You'll be getting hands-on business exposure. Plenty of it. Working at a start-up is both challenging and exciting, but you’ll love every minute of it - taking on multiple roles, working together with dynamic founders, throwing yourself into the hustle and bustle of life in a start-up environment. Like Xander Khoo, you’ll get to experience first-hand the thrilling process of building and running a company.

Mix Work With Academic Learning

Besides the choice of working at companies in nine leading entrepreneurial hotspots around the world, you’ll also study part-time at our renowned partner universities. Think Stanford University at Silicon Valley, Tsinghua University in Beijing, Tel Aviv University in Israel and more. What’s more, the modules you take can add up to Modular Credits (MCs) towards programme requirements in most faculties.

Up Close With The Right Communities

Business is all about networking, and that's what Sylvia Look did while she was in Silicon Valley. At NOC, you’ll get plenty of networking opportunities while immersing in the local start-up community during your internship. Mix around with successful entrepreneurs, start-up founders and NOC alumni for advices, collaboration and other opportunities. When you return, get a chance to live within a community of aspiring entrepreneurs at our themed residence, ENterprise House (N-House), where you'll enjoy taking part in entrepreneurship-related events and activities.

Be Different

Just as Johnathan Cheng had to learn to make critical decisions, the NOC programme will equip you with the right skills and experience to start your own business. Should you decide to join the corporate world, you’ll possess a unique entrepreneurial mind-set that will differentiate you from fellow co-workers and prime you to excel in your career.



That’s why the NOC programme isn’t just another internship. It’s an invaluable opportunity and experience to kickstart your very own entrepreneurial journey.

Go on and start yours today!
