Bicultural Studies Programme

The Bicultural Studies Programme in selected schools is for students with strong passion for biculturalism and keen interest in understanding contemporary China and the West. Learn more about the programme and how to join.

The Bicultural Studies Programme (BSP) was introduced in 2005 and is offered in selected schools. It aims to:

  • Develop China-conversant talents who can engage the Chinese as well as relate to the West.
  • Facilitate a deeper understanding of international issues involving China, the West and Southeast Asia, through a Singaporean perspective.
