The National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI)
The National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) is a computing competition organized by National University of Singapore. It is modelled after the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics) and is one of the most prestigious competitions for programming in Singapore.
Why Take Part in NOI?
Top NOI winners will represent Singapore in the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics) competition. An Olympiad medal is highly recognised for admissions to top universities around the world.
NOI Preparation Programme
Selected students will receive best-in-class coaching to giving them a high chance of succeeding and attaining a medal in the competition.

Invitation to NOI Training

A highly rigorous programme, our NOI Training course requires a strong foundation in Mathematics, a passion for programming and the fortitude to persevere through countless hours of thinking through highly difficult coding challenges.

Designed and taught by top IOI and multiple NOI Gold Medallists, combined with the signature Coding Lab style of instruction, this course is conducted over one and a half years and will cover topics such as Sorting, Divide and Conquer, Dynamic Programming and Graph Data Structure and Algorithms.

This programme is by invitation only. We have a highly selective systematic process to identify suitable candidates within our current pool of students attending our Python programme. You may also wish to indicate interest by sending us an email at learntocode@codinglab.com.sg. Alternatively, you may also speak to your tutor to indicate your interest.

There’s so much that you can do just using variables, functions, and loops! I understood this when I was learning Python, but only truly appreciated it when I began learning algorithms and C++ to take part in the NOI.Sarah Go, 17, Hwa Chong International

Testimonials


Sarah and her family, trekking in the USA

Coding Lab Student Feature: Sarah Go, 17, Hwa Chong International

Meet Sarah, our talented young coder. Starting from ground zero, she has come a long way – after all, she clinched an Honourable mention at the National Olympiad in Informatics (NOI) in March 2018, in just less than six months of learning to code.

 



Lauren in Python class

Coding Lab Student Feature: Lauren Yeo, 14, Methodist Girls’ School, (IB) Programme

Meet Lauren, the child music prodigy who, at the age of 9, sang at Carnegie Hall after winning 1st place at the American Protégé International Voice Competition in New York. Also a self-confessed Science nerd, and a member of her school Science Club and MENSA, Lauren is living proof that arts and science can go together.

 



NEW! Python Meets Mathematics

Coding Lab Student Feature: Josephine, 14, Raffles Girls School

Meet our talented student, Josephine, 14. A member of her school’s Infocomm club, she started with Coding Lab in 2017, where she was first introduced to Python programming. She has since progressed upward and can now count programming in C++ as another skill under her belt.
