NUS undergraduates who are awarded funding from NUS for participating in international programmes (eg Student Exchange Programme (SEP), internship/industrial attachment programme, hybrid work and study programme, and short-term immersion programme) are eligible for co-funding from International Enterprise (IE) Singapore under the Young Talent Programme (YTP) - Market Immersion.
The core objective of YTP-Market Immersion is to provide overseas opportunities to core and emerging markets for young talents to gain industry exposure and market immersion experience that will enhance their future employability.
