Summer Programmes 2013
FASStrack Asia 2013
This is a brand new exciting summer school programme that FASS is launching in June 2013. We invite you to join us for this inaugural summer school where you will get to mingle with international students from all over the world including from Yale, UC Berkeley, University of Copenhagen and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill etc as well as your fellow NUS students.
There is a choice of 10 modules from the Asian Studies Departments as well as Economics. You will also get a chance to go on a fieldtrip in one of the Southeast Asian countries 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. You will be living, studying and travelling with one another.
And NUS students may also get some form of financial assistance from NUS for the fieldtrip cost as well as for the cost of staying at the residential colleges at U-Town. There is no CAP restriction for application for the school.

Following the success of OdySEA 2012, NUS had developed more interesting courses for students to challenge their intellectual capacity as well as gain a greater understanding of our own backyard which is Southeast Asia.
Both the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and Faculty of Science (FOS) are proud to continue the exploration of Southeast Asia with the 2nd OdySEA Summer School, jointly hosted by FASS and FOS. You will get to explore the issue and impact of human trafficking in Thailand and an in-depth look at visual anthropology in Laos and the sheer biodiversity that the Philippines has to offer; and all of these courses will be buffered by a capstone course in understanding the cultures and peoples of Southeast Asia.
OdySEA 2013 will take place from 24 June to 3 August 2013; it is designed to provide you with an opportunity to experience a relatively low-cost study abroad summer programme with a 10 day field trip in Thailand, Laos or the Philippines. You will have the opportunity to live, study, and travel together with teaching staff who are experts in their discipline and in the region, making it a valuable learning experience that extends beyond normal classroom learning. OdySEA is intended for NUS students with a spirit of adventure and an interest in Southeast Asia.
