Immigration & Insurance
Stricter border control measures are expected to be in place in fall 2021 and additional immigration processes could be required. NUS is keeping a close eye on the latest advice from immigration authorities and any possible impact on students' ability to secure a Student's Pass (Visa). In the event border control measures prevent students from entering Singapore, we will let partners know as soon as possible. Given the uncertainties associated with international travel, we ask nominated students not to make travel or housing arrangements for their exchange until they receive their offer letter from NUS (mid-June 2021).
Available Modules (Courses)
NUS Timetable Builder, which includes course descriptions, can be found here: nusmods.com
Please note some modules could be conducted online in Semester 1. Such courses will be noted as "E-learning" in the NUS Timetable Builder above.
We anticipate a number of deferrals from 2020/21 thus higher than usual demand for modules. Students are encouraged to be very flexible with their course requirements and to have plenty of back-up options in the event of oversubscribed modules or timetable clashes.
NUS is unable to offer virtual exchange options in AY2021/22.
Students will apply for housing after they have been accepted into the programme. More information on how and when to apply for housing will be included in acceptance letters (released in mid-June 2021).
Students may need to self-isolate for up to 14 days upon arrival in Singapore. Student should take this into account when making travel and housing plans. More information regarding arrival procedures will be included in acceptance letters.
