Summer Programmes

Introduction
Students can participate in the summer programmes organised by NUS or our partner universities. This is a shorter version of SEP which allows students are able to experience independent life in a different culture for a few weeks.

Special Concession: Modular Credits / Fee Waiver for 12 MC for Summer Schools
In order to enjoy the 12 MC Fee Waiver for credits earned in your summer school, please ensure that you carried out proper module mapping procedures (please see below) and obtain the appropriate approval accordingly. The number of actual credit that can be transferred will be subjected to the same rules under the MC Exchange Ratio.

FASStrack Asia: The Summer School (23 June - 25 July 2014)

Now into our second year, FASStrack Asia: The Summer School is expanding in 2014!

Combining the widely popular and successful OdySEA summer school and the long-running IARU Global Summer Programme (Southeast Asia in Context) under the FASStrack Asia umbrella from 2014 onwards, we invite you to join us in this new summer 5-week summer school where you will get to mingle with international students from all over the world including from top universities such as Yale, UC Berkeley, University of Copenhagen and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill etc as well as your fellow NUS students.

For 2014, FASStrack Asia is offering a choice of 16 modules from the Asian Studies, Political Science, Sociology, Economics Departments and Centre of Language Studies, as well as a module from the Faculty of Science. You will get a chance to go on a field trip to an Asian country, such as China, Japan, Korea or Southeast Asia where you will be led by lecturers well-versed in the region; and have an in-depth exploration of a theme or topic in that country. Through living, studying and travelling with one another for a period of 8-10days, this is your summer opportunity to earn academic credits, while embarking on an exciting adventure to soak up some cultural experiences in the country of visit!

Besides classes and field trips, FASStrack Asia also offer a variety of social activities during the course of the summer school such as a Summer Welcome Session, a local heritage tour, fireside chats with distinguished speakers, and a Farewell Dinner for all participants.

Modules offered do not require pre-requisites and are open to all NUS students and students of other universities. NUS students are eligible to apply as long as you meet the min. CAP of 2.0. Substantial housing grants are available to NUS students who volunteer as student assistants during the summer school. Financial assistance are available for needy NUS students, subject to applicable terms and conditions.
