International Relations Office
Returning Exchange Students
Welcome back…now what?
There is plenty of information on how to go on exchange, but how do you return from it? Many NUS students returning from exchange find themselves lost upon their return, struggling to deal with the re-entry phase of reverse culture shock in the same way they struggled to adapt to the new country.
The NUS International Relations Office wants to help you settle back into NUS and we offer a Re-entry Briefing to do just that! You can also join the Peer Advising Programme with other returning students to help NUS students going out on exchange and international students coming to NUS on exchange!
We hope you take advantage of all of these resources upon your return from exchange and hope to see you at an upcoming Re-entry Briefing!
Did you collect your original transcript from your faculty or department? Did you remember to check that your credit transferred?
Returning to life at NUS means getting a lot of things done and we don’t want you to forget anything! Check out the returnee checklist to make sure you cross everything off your list.
Have you remembered to…
Were your classes too hard at the host university? Were there wonderful social activities? Was the housing a reasonable price? Did you have trouble integrating? We want to know everything!
Tell us what you thought of your exchange experience and help us improve the programme for future classes of NUS students by completing the returning SEP student survey today.

Was there something you wished your seniors have told you before you went on SEP? Have you had a great exchange experience and want your juniors to benefit too? Not sure which topic to start with in giving advice? Here is your chance to do your part and contribute back to the NUS community!
Fill out our report template with designated categories to share important information that are useful for future outgoing students. We may share your report on the NUS/IRO website and relevant information at SEP information sessions and/or in publicity collaterals.
