Mission Statement

Our Mission

The CML’s Mission supports the University’s aim to provide students with a broad and holistic education to be excellent global citizens, while meeting the requirements of future employers. With this in mind, the CML promotes and enhances multilingualism amongst University students and staff by encouraging and supporting language learning for personal, academic and professional purposes. We strive to achieve excellent language education through innovative program design, research-informed teaching and through the use of the latest technologies.


Our Vision

The Centre for Modern Languages reflects the nature of Nanyang Technological University: NTU is not just a multinational university but also a multilingual research and teaching environment. Therefore, the CML fosters and supports collaborative initiatives both within the University and in the community at large to develop and encourage language learning as an essential element not only in a University education, but also as a key skill for lifelong learning in this age of globalization.
