HEY! is an award-winning magazine by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) that delivers surprising facets of campus life into the palm of your hand. From inspirational success stories of students and graduates to news about our fast-developing campus and global achievements, every issue brings you the scoop from the ground.

The multi-platform integrated magazine has a fresh and breezy editorial style, offering an engaging read, and the print magazine now comes with exclusive augmented reality features. Since its debut in 2011, it has been recognised for its ability to provide a fun and effective way to learn more about NTU, and for helping to share the university’s successes.

In 2009, HEY! breathed new life into the printed world with augmented reality (AR). Through the NTU HEY! AR app, readers can turn photos in the magazine into videos, 3D objects, or even creatures that leap from the page into our world. The NTU HEY! AR app trended no.1 as the most downloaded education app on both the App Store and Google Play upon its launch.
