Advice for students who are planning to intern with FAS2552 FASS Extended Internship

While an internship can be an important element in the preparation for life after NUS, students who wish to participate in internships during a semester are advised to be mindful of the following:

  1. You are strongly encouraged to discuss with your major advisor and plan your studies carefully. FASS encourages students who wish to intern during a regular semester to do so with FAS2552, for which they can earn 8 MC in Unrestricted Electives (UE). However, keep in mind that the internship semester counts towards your candidature and you are thus required to pay full semester fees. (This also means that you get to maintain your status as a current NUS student during your internship and thus enjoy continued access to NUS medical and insurance benefits.)
  2. Students who are enrolled in FAS2552 are allowed to have a decreased workload (less than 18 MC) for the semester and are allowed to register for other modules provided they do not interfere with the internship. That being said, you must have a written approval and understanding from your instructor and your employer before you register for the additional modules.

In addition, to ensure that you will be able to graduate on time, your study plan will be scrutinized before your internship application for FAS2552 can be approved. You need to plan to overload or access Special Term modules before and/or after the internship semester so that you can graduate on time.


Important Information 

Planning guidelines

Students may pursue the internship module concurrently with other modules, but only with approval from the company or organization, and FASS Deanery. Like any other NUS module, each FASS Internship Programme module may only be used once.

FASS students who have completed or are pursuing the year-long NOC programmes are not allowed to read these modules. Students should, therefore, consider their options carefully before embarking on their internships.

Students going on SEP are not allowed to enroll in any module during the SEP semester.

Credits & grading

The FASS Internship Programme modules are used to fulfill UE and are graded on CS/CU basis. Internships that were performed while on LOA cannot be used to earn credit.

Internship modules in Honours year

Students in the Honours year are only allowed to intern with FAS2551 and may not take more internship modules to delay Honours. Students are reminded that they are expected to graduate on time. From Cohort 2016 onwards, penalties will be levied for students who do not graduate on time. The expected time to graduation are:

  • 6 regular semesters for BA
  • 8 regular semesters for BA (Hons) or BSocSci (Hons)

For more specific advice on your study plan and whether it is compatible with an internship, please contact the FASS IP Administrator
