Research Attachments

**Important Update on COVID-19**

January 2021 - With global travel restrictions remaining in-place, physical research attachment programmes may remain limited in 2021. Any available opportunities offered by NUS' partner universities will be listed in the table below.

Students who participate in i-RAPs in summer 2021 and who wish to seek credits via module mapping, should read this list of FAQs.

 


Global Relations Office (GRO) offers opportunities for students to broaden and enhance their undergraduate experience through global research attachments under the mentorship of world-class researchers. Students will have the chance to live in another country and conduct research in a different academic/research environment through summer research exchanges offered by NUS’ partner universities.


Remarks: NUS undergraduate students must have a clean disciplinary record and be a strong ambassador for NUS and Singapore in order to be eligible for these programmes.
