Humanities Programme




VJC has been offering the Humanities Programme for more than twenty years. The MOE Humanities Scholarship, granted to students in the programme, is valued at $1,000 per annum. Students have to offer English Literature, two other Arts subjects (China Studies, Economics, Geography, History, Theatre Studies and Drama) and a contrasting subject. The scholars are also expected to eventually pursue a H3 in one of the Arts subjects.

VJC’s Humanities scholars have been key contributors to our tradition of academic excellence as well as our vibrant college life. Many have done very well and been awarded prestigious scholarships such as the President’s Scholarship, Singapore Armed Forces Overseas Scholarship, NUS Global Merit Scholarship as well as scholarships from the Jardine Foundation and the Loke Cheng Kim Foundation.


Candidates should:

  • Be Singapore Citizens;
  • Have done consistently well in school, obtaining outstanding results in the GCE O-Level Examinations / equivalent results based on IP school’s internal assessment;
  • Have a good record of co-curricular activities;
  • Not currently be in receipt of any other MOE scholarship
