Education

During the financial crisis of 2008 to 2009, we set up the Nexia TS scholarships for the financially needy students in NTU, SMU and SIM, in particular to support those pursuing the Accountancy degree. As a public accounting firm, we also see this as a way to encourage growth of the accountancy profession and aid aspiring students to achieve their career goals. These scholarships also offer opportunities for internships at our firm and a career path with us upon graduation.


NTU Scholarship

Mr Hoo Peng Han is our first recipient of the Nexia TS – NTU Scholarship.

"It was very frightening at first because I thought I would not be able to cope between juggling school and part-time work and furthermore, my parents were running the household mainly with their savings and I didn't want my fees and other expenses to eat too much into it. When I received the news that I was awarded the scholarship, it was like a light at the end of the tunnel for me. I no longer have to worry about finances and could focus clearly on my studies, make plans about my future and spend quality time with my family and friends"


Mr Quan Fuwen is our second recipient of the Nexia TS - NTU Scholarship.

According to him, the scholarship will help lighten his financial burden and therefore allows him to focus on his studies. He joined our firm for his internship in May 2011.
