Peer Advising Programme

Outgoing Exchange Students

Are you excited about your upcoming semester abroad? Trust us when we say that it is going to be the best experience of your university life! We have been there before and want to help you by:

  • connecting you with our Peer Advisors who have been on exchange and understand what it is like to be in your shoes. All you need to do is to drop us an email telling us where you are heading to and we will find a helpful Peer Advisor for you.
  • organising SEP Drop-in Clinics and the annual “Go Away” Exchange Fair. At these events, you will get to meet Peer Advisors, Student Exchange Programme (SEP) managers and incoming exchange students to ask any questions you might have about your upcoming exchange.

SEP Drop-in Clinics

The process of preparing for exchange can be daunting at times, but we are more than willing to give you a helping hand! The Peer Advisors conduct SEP Drop-in Clinics every semester for two to three weeks. During which, you can speak to peers and SEP managers who can give advice and help you plan for your exchange.

In addition, you can access relevant reading materials at the resource library which is located within the International Relations Office (IRO). Come and visit us at Shaw Foundation Alumni House (Level 3). The schedule on SEP Drop-in Clinic will be shared on the PALs’ Facebook page.

If you are not able to attend the SEP Drop-in Clinic, you may download the Pre-Departure briefing slides which the SEP managers have prepared for you.

‘Go Away’ Exchange Fair

The annual “Go Away” Exchange Fair is held in March for National University of Singapore (NUS) students who have applied or are considering applying for SEP. Incoming exchange students from our partner universities will talk about their home university and share useful materials with you. This student-led fair will be held at Yusof Ishak House Student’s lounge at NUS. Please keep a lookout for the event updates on the PALs’ Facebook page.
