Special Programme in Mathematics (SPM)
Started in December 2005, this programme is specially designed for a select group of students who have a strong passion and aptitude for the mathematical sciences. It consists of a number of specially designed modules ("S-modules") in foundational mathematics, which are taught in much greater depth and sophistication than their regular versions. In addition and under the close mentorship of faculty members, students participate in two semesters of undergraduate seminars in the form of topic modules.
Participants of the SPM have enhanced opportunities for undergraduate research programmes locally and overseas, as well as graduate programmes at the Department of Mathematics in NUS. Through SPM, students will build a firm foundation to pursue graduate programmes and future careers in the mathematical sciences.
With effect from 2014, students who have completed the programme will have it reflected in their NUS official transcripts.
