Briefings and Information Sessions

Pre-Departure Briefings

The Student Exchange Programme (SEP) team at Global Relations Office (GRO) conducts a series of Pre-Departure Briefings in each semester to prepare students for their overseas exchange adventure. Returning exchange students are invited to share stories about their exchange. Occasionally, incoming exchange students will also attend to share more information about their home university.


Every Pre-Departure Briefing includes important topics on immigration, accommodation, finance, insurance, health and safety.


Invitation to the Pre-Departure Briefings will be sent via email to students who have been selected for SEP. Students who are leaving for exchange are strongly encouraged to register for the relevant briefing at NUS Calendar of Events.


The presentation slides will be uploaded onto this website after the briefings. You may download a copy for your reference. If you would like to provide feedback on the Pre-Departure Briefings, please send it using askGRO.
