NUS Arts and Social Sciences: Quick Start-Up Guide for Freshmen (with Nicole)
Watch this short video for a quick introduction to resources available to FASS students and that are especially helpful for Freshmen.


In Semester 1, AY2020-2021, FASS is adopting e-learning and e-assessment for the vast majority of undergraduate modules. This is a unique situation that may pose challenges for students, and FASS is committed to supporting you through these challenges as much as possible. Here are some available resources; more will be added as they come online.

If you foresee yourself facing other challenges while participating in e-learning next semester (e.g. lack Internet connectivity or suitable study environment at home), please get in touch with FASS Student Support at This email address is being protected from spambots.

NUS Financial Aid Schemes
