Alumni are invited back to give talks, roundtable discussions or workshops for students and share their experiences and advice on various topics and issues. We organize the following programmes and events as a means to get involved with FASS.
FASS Mentorship Programme
The FASS Mentorship Programme (FMP) was established to provide a link between current students and FASS alumni. Providing guidance and words of wisdom on life outside the classroom, established alumni and friends of FASS act as mentors to guide our students professionally.
You can get involved by offering internships to our currents. The internship programme is meant to provide students with some work experience during the vacation periods (May and December) and give them an insight into specific career options.
My “FASS Family” Host Programme
This is a friendship programme that engages our very own FASS alumni hosts to assist our incoming FASS international students adapt to our NUS and Singaporean culture better. The FASS Family Host programme is special in having our very own FASS alum be a special friend to ease students into life in Singapore.

Alumni come back as speakers to share with students about their own experiences and industries they are in - offering them an insight into industry practices and a better understanding on what they could aspire to be. The talks, while familiarizing our undergraduate students with the current industry trends, offer our alumni a glimpse into current academic thought and an avenue to interact with their juniors and faculty. Past FASS Talks featured alumni from industries like Banking and Finance, Public Relations and Communications, Tourism, Voluntary Welfare Organizations and Social Work to name a few.
FASS Speed Mentoring and Networking with Alumni
FASS also organises Speed Mentoring and Networking events where Alumni from different industries are invited for an informal networking session with students over dinner. Industries featured in past events include Arts and Culture, Consultancy, Education, Finance, Hospitality, Journalism, Public Relations, Social Work, etc.
FASS Alumni Dinner
FASS Alumni Dinner at University Town offers an occasion for alumni to reminisce about the good old days, renewing ties and making new friends. Alumni are treated to a walking tour of University Town hosted by our FASS undergraduates, followed by a sumptuous Italian dinner.
