FASStrack Asia: The Summer School

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the National University of Singapore invites you to join us in FASStrack Asia for an exciting 5-week summer programme and an opportunity to understand Singapore (and Asia) through experiential learning, hands-on research and in-depth cultural immersion.

FASStrack Asia offers a choice of over 10 modules from the Asian Studies Departments as well as Economics, Sociology, Political Science, Centre for Language Studies, and one from the Faculty of Science. You will get a chance to go on a 7 to 9 days' field trip to a Southeast Asian country, or to East Asia such as China, Japan and Korea with lecturers well- versed in the region for exploration of a theme or topic in that country. You will be living, studying and travelling with NUS students as well as international students from all over the world including from Yale University, UC Berkeley, University of Copenhagen and King's College London etc. During your stay in Singapore, you will be living and attending classes at UTown, the newest campus extension in NUS and have an opportunity to participate in social activities in the summer school such as the Welcome Session, Heritage Tours, Fireside chats and a Farewell Dinner.

If your home university has an exchange arrangement with us, your tuition fees may be waived. Please contact your home university study abroad administrators for more details.
