About IHC Student Guide Programme

The Student Guide Programme is an initiative that seeks to encourage discovery and appreciation of Singapore’s Indian heritage in an engaging and interactive manner. Student Guides have the opportunity to conduct tours of Indian Heritage Centre’s permanent and special exhibition galleries to guests, including Ministers on official visits, fellow students on learning trips, as well as members of the public.
