Tinesh Indrarajah

Yale-NUS College Bachelor of Arts with Honours and NUS Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy Master in Public Policy

Class of 2018, Malaysia
Dean's Fellow at Yale-NUS College

Tinesh Indrarajah is a Dean’s Fellow at Yale-NUS College, serving as a mentor  for students while contributing to the development of the College’s programmes and initiatives. As one of the three inaugural graduates from the Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKY School), Tinesh is a proud ambassador of Yale-NUS and strongly believes in the value of a liberal arts education. He notes that his Yale-NUS experience has enabled him to be comfortable engaging with materials from different disciplines and mediums in order to arrive at reasoned arguments. The active class engagement aspect of the Yale-NUS curriculum also equipped him with the skills to contribute effectively to discussions at LKYSPP, since the seminar structure was similar to classes at Yale-NUS.

As the first batch of CDP students, being part of the partnership between Yale-NUS and LKY School has been a meaningful experience. In my capacity as an ambassador for Yale-NUS at the LKY school, it has made me proud whenever professors or students remark about the value of the Yale-NUS educational model. My peers and I feel good knowing that our academic success and community contributions are being recognised.
