Introduction

Internships for the FASS Internship Programme (FASS IP) do not have to be closely tied to specific disciplinary training offered by FASS departments (e.g., Economics, History, etc). They only need to reflect the range of jobs that the majority of fresh FASS graduates will apply for, i.e., internships that can utilise the critical and analytical skills that distinguish our graduates. An internship may be paid or unpaid and is characterised by: 

  1. on-the-job training rather than merely employment

  2. intentional learning goals for the interns

  3. close supervision

For more guideline for internships, please refer to NUS Centre for Future-ready Graduates website for employers.

Responsibilities of Employers 

Appointment of a Workplace Supervisor

We request that the employer appoint a Workplace Supervisor to guide and review the progress of internship. He/She will:

1. Discuss the specifics of the internship and Work Plan with the student

2. Endorse student's report before submission (if necessary)

3. Once the internship is completed, feedback on student's performance by completing the Employer Evaluation (the Workplace Supervisor’s feedback accounts for a significant part of the grade the student will receive for the internship module)

Completion of Employer Evaluation

Workplace Supervisor is requested to fill out the Employer Evaluation in NUS TalentConnect. Please refer to the table on the close of module date respective to the internship period, and the steps involved in completing the Employer Evaluation.
