From NUS

Academic Culture
Is an introduction and initiation to the university’s culture. A university is an academic community, whose purpose and task is to advance collective knowledge. Fresh university students enter this community as novices. Your success in it depends in part on how well you adapt to the culture – how thoroughly you absorb academic values and norms, and how adept you become in academic practices. The goal of this module is to help you make your transition into that culture a smooth and enjoyable one.
