About the National Silver Academy (NSA)

The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) that offer learning opportunities for seniors. Beginning June 2016, seniors aged 50 and above can look forward to attending:

SHORT COURSES

These courses are in areas which are more life-skills rather than work-skills oriented. For VWO-run courses, the final fee payable – for both Singaporean and PR seniors – takes into account the prior support given by the government to VWOs to develop and offer the short courses.

AD HOC LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES

These are programmes such as the intergenerational learning programme which pairs students with seniors to learn about selected topics. Other programmes include short talks targeted at seniors.
