Last year the NUS Investment Society also held a public symposium at the Singapore Stock Exchange, with prominent guest speakers from the likes of Suntec REIT and Phillip Capital.
Alumni members of the society also return to network and share experiences with the students. Some even offer finance internship opportunities for members to get a deeper understanding of the industry.
Business management undergraduate Sebastian Seow, 24, was another investing newbie when he joined the Singapore Management University Student Managed Investment Fund (SMU-SMIF), his university's investment club.
This student club boasts a Singaporean equities portfolio that has generated a 94 percent total return since it started in 2006, with compounded annualized returns of 6.4 percent, beating the Straits Times index (STI) which generated 3.5 percent in the same period.
"[The selection of] star performing stocks like HCL Technologies and First REIT helped to boost our performance," said Seow to CNBC in an email interview.
Wannabe members for the SMU-SMIF have to undergo a strict selection process that involves a number of interviews, and those selected are trained for a year and even deliver investment pitches, all on top of their usual school workload.

Members are divided into industry sectors, such as consumers and industrial, where they start out as a 'junior analyst' and gain an in-depth understanding of the industry, companies and market dynamics.
The student club even publishes a daily internal 'morning note' with financial news updates, latest market activities and indicators.
"We also encourage members to use their knowledge and skills to do their own personal investments and build up their portfolios," Seow said.
SMU-SMIF members have personal investments that range from a humble $2,149 to $35,800, and some even attended the Berkshire Hathaway's annual general meeting, the financial jamboree in Omaha, Nebraska, that's known as Woodstock for Capitalists, this year, he said.
