The School recognises that the Student Exchange Programme (SEP) offers an excellent and precious opportunity to extend your education to places which offers a blend of views and perception. Eligible students may apply to spend up to a semester abroad for SEP and transfer the earned credits back to NUS. Students are encouraged to plan ahead and allow for some flexibility in terms of modules read in the Partner Universities.
For NUS undergraduate students, the minimum criteria to be eligible for the NUS Student Exchange Programme (SEP) application are:
The following categories of students are not eligible for overseas SEP:
Departments and Partner Universities, may at their discretion, impose further selection criteria.
Applications for AY2017/2018 SEP are now closed.
At the point of making the SEP application and again during the acceptance of the SEP offer, all students should consider carefully several important factors including, but not limited to, financial support and academic progress and compatibility. It is important to plan ahead and allow for some flexibility.
Should you choose to accept the internal offer in the system, please note that the decision is final and you are liable to a $300 penalty fee for withdrawal requests. The penalty fee will be added to your Student Bill collected by Office of Financial Services.
After accepting the internal offer, a module mapping worksheet will be created for you (please allow up to two to three working days for the creation).
Please note that mappings are reviewed by NUS Host Departments and their decision is final. For non-SDE modules, please note that some Departments only provide approval based on the module content. The eventual number of MCs transferred may need to be advised separately. FASS strictly follows a MC Exchange Ratio here.
Students are advised that mapping approval can take at least two to three weeks.
If in doubt, please approach your home department administrator.Student Information System (mySIS > Self-Service > Global Education > Module Mapping Worksheet)
