Study Trips for Engagement and EnRichment (STEER)

The NUS Study Trips for Engagement and EnRichment (STEER) is a programme designed to familiarise students with the diverse socio-cultural-economic environments of new and fast-evolving regions through a mix of classroom-based learning and experiential site visits. Inaugurated in December 2010, the STEER programme has expanded to include Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Myanmar, Oman, Panama, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates and Viet Nam.

NUS STEER programmes are designed to be thematic and help our undergraduates break existing mindsets about these emerging regions through participation in an immersive educational and cultural experience.

Last year, more than 200 students returned from our STEER programmes with rich experiences and deeper first-hand knowledge of the countries they visited. In December 2017, STEER will bring students to more countries in Southeast Asia, Asia, and the Middle East!

STEER Homecoming Event

Biannually, in February and August, IRO organises a STEER Homecoming Event for our immediate past STEER participants to share their STEER highlights and experiences with one another. Additionally, these programmes serve to share with all our STEER partners in the various NUS units and the student participants the insightful learning points and best practices of these study trips.
