Special Term for Returning National Servicemen and Non-Graduating Students

The Registrar's Office manages the application of incoming overseas Non-Graduating (NG) students who are interested in reading one or two modules at NUS in each or both parts of the Special Term.  The Office also manages the application of Returning National Servicemen (RNSmen) who have places reserved for them in NUS to register for studies earlier, if they wish, during the Special Terms.

Relevant information on the Special Term for RNSmen and NG students are provided below.


MODULE REGISTRATION

All interested students are required to apply online here. Please read the general instructions before submitting an application.

A student is allowed to register for a maximum of two modules in each part of the Special Term. A student can choose to register for modules for only one part instead of both parts of the Special Term (i.e. Part 1 or Part 2). The list of modules available in Special Term is published here.

Returning National Servicemen who will be registering as undergraduate students in the coming July/August, please read this set of application instructions before applying.

Non-Graduating Exchange students must obtain formal approval from their home university (student exchange coordinator) to join NUS prior submitting an online application. Exchange applications will only be accepted on the basis of official nominations from a partner university.
