 About National Silver Academy (NSA)
The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and community-based organisations that offer learning opportunities that are subsidised for seniors. Seniors and PRs aged 50 years and above can look forward to attending short courses and bite-sized courses that are exam free. For courses run by community-based organisations, the final fee payable – for both Singaporean and Permanent Resident seniors – takes into account the support given by the government to community-based organisations to develop and offer the short courses.

It offers over 70 courses under the National Silver Academy, most of which are highly subsidised for Singaporeans & Permanent Residents aged 50 and above.

Description The great Einstein once remarked, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”. Mental agility is the ability of the mind to think clearly, organize thoughts and clarify complex issues. The mind is very complicated and simplifying challenges requires the mind to be agile. When there is mental agility, the mind recognises wrong assumptions and the state of emotions in your thinking. You can adapt quickly to new environment and situational changes. The benefits of an agile mind are the ability to reason, better clarity of events and the skill of explaining seemingly complex things. Every senior can be mentally agile once they learn the skills and practice them in daily conversation and events.
