Student Life

NUFYP students are encouraged to participate actively in campus life. Participation in extracurricular activities aids students in forming new friendships and these clubs offer environments in which students further develop their skills in leadership, teamwork, creative thinking, and healthy lifestyles. After university, participation in hobbies and volunteering can play a significant part of one’s success in applying for jobs or further academic studies, and can improve their general well-being.
