Young Talent Programme(YTP)

What Is it?

The Young Talent Programme (YTP) aims to provide opportunities for young talents to gain global exposure and market immersion experience, in order to prepare them to take on future global careers.


In addition to participating local universities e.g. Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore Management University (SMU), the YTP has been extended to the polytechnics with effect from Q3 2015.

Who Is It For?

The Young Talent Programme (YTP) is for Singaporeans or Singapore Permanent Residents.

How Can I Benefit From It?

You will be able to get a head start in a highly competitive job market through valuable overseas work experience. You will receive a subsistence allowance for the duration of the programme while you are still studying.

How does it work?

Students who are awarded funding from respective educational institutions for participating in overseas immersion programmes (i.e. internships/industrial attachment programmes, or hybrid work-and-study programmes) may be eligible for co-funding from International Enterprise (IE) Singapore under the YTP to cover daily overseas living expenses.

How do I sign up?

Students can apply for the YTP through participating polytechnics from October 2015. You can approach your respective educational institutions to find out more about the relevant overseas immersion programmes.
