NUS Overseas College (NOC) programme aims to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit of students. During the 1-year programme, students intern in a technology-based start-up company and take up courses part-time in reputable universities.
Students, regardless of major, can apply for the programme if they have completed four semesters of studies and obtained at least 80 MC. Students are also required to spend at least one regular semester in NUS upon their return from the programme.
If you wish to apply for the full year NOC, please do so in your 2nd year at NUS so that you will be able to head out in your 3rd year.
To qualify to read discipline modules, students must obtain a minimum CAP of 3.5 and above. They are to seek permission from the relevant departments on the mapping of discipline modules.
Most students can use the internship and entrepreneurial modules only to fulfill either their Breadth or Unrestricted Electives outside the Major requirements. GL and NM students will be able to use NOC modules to fulfill some of their major requirements.
Cohort 2016 onwards: FASS students who have completed or are pursuing the year-long NOC programmes, are not allowed to read FASS internship module (FAS2551/FAS2552/FAS2553). Students should therefore consider their options carefully before embarking on their internships.
