Even as NUS charts its globalisation direction, there are now tremendous opportunities for the Faculty to tap into an international network to enhance its research activities, student exchange programmes and establish value-added degree programmes with other partner universities.
The International Office at FASS seeks to enhance and increase the overseas educational exposure experience and opportunities for our students; we want to extend information and services to international students coming here to FASS for their semester away; to equip faculty members with information on staff exchanges, facilitate and to promote greater research collaborative opportunities with faculty from our partner universities.
We are responsible for the setting up of student exchange agreements to give our students more options and opportunities for a chance at study abroad both at the graduate and undergraduate level. FASS student exchange programme, which is administered by the International Office, allows students to spend a semester or two overseas in a foreign partner university, for which agreements have been signed at the University or Faculty level.
We also have several undergraduate and graduate degree programmes with our partner universities such as University of North Carolina, King's College, London and Australian National University to stretch our best students.
In addition with the International Alliance of Research Universities (IARU), the International Office also assists in the set-up, administrative and logistics of FASS summer schools for our students and international students. And we will also provide an information platform for our partners' overseas educational opportunities that will benefit our students.
In addition, we will also be the information source for international students who wants to come to FASS for study abroad; both for sampling our course offering as well as making use of the research facilities at FASS. Ultimately FASS International Office wants to make FASS an exciting place for students to study and for faculty members, a progressive place to work.
