  • By default, an AA from the FASS Deanery will be assigned to each student. However, you may also nominate a faculty member as AA. Please seek agreement from the faculty member first before nominating.
  • If you wish to nominate your own AA, please contact the FASS IP Administrator.


Other Information

Will the Faculty/Department find an internship for me?

The Faculty/Department does not find internships for students, but we do assist in sourcing internship opportunities through our partnerships with companies/organisations and guide them to post their internships on NUS TalentConnect.

You need to make your own applications and go through company/organisation selection processes yourself. Securing an internship on your own is intended to be part of the learning process.

Can I source for my own internship locally or overseas?

Yes. You are expected to source internships on your own. But all internships must be approved by the FASS Dean’s Office if it is to be performed under FASS IP.

Students who are keen to embark on international Internships that are conducted overseas and endorsed by NUS may apply for the relevant financial aid. Please refer to the CFG Internship Resources for more information.
