塔什干棉农vs吉达:Summer & Winter Programmes

塔什干棉农队帕克塔科 www.zzechk.com.cn Maximise your term breaks during your NUS candidature by joining an academic programme at any of the partner universities recommended by the NUS Global Relations Office (GRO). You can earn credits towards your degree and apply for the financial support administered by GRO as long as you apply through the NUS Education Records System (EduRec) for the summer /winter programmes recommended by GRO.

How do Summer / Winter programmes (i-SP) work?

GRO carefully selects summer/winter programmes offered by reputable universities around the world. i-SP recommended by GRO to students offer a diversity of quality courses in exciting destinations to match every interest.


The i-SP programmes offered by partner universities may be on:


  • Fee-paying basis; fees will have to be paid to the host university directly (majority of the programmes)
  • Fee-waiver basis; programme fees for NUS students will be waived  (limited selected programmes)

All outgoing students have to be responsible for their own living expenses which include airfare, accommodation, food, transport, etc. while on overseas summer / winter programme.

Why go on i-SP?

i-SP is one of the many global programmes offered to NUS undergraduates. It is shorter in duration than the flagship Student Exchange Programme (SEP) and offers students the opportunity to explore non-traditional destinations in East Asia, Europe and Latin America. Such experiences cultivate a deeper appreciation of the diverse culture and lifestyle of different countries while not affecting your usual academic term. The experiences you acquire during your overseas studies will be equally valuable to your future employers.

Who should go on i-SP?

i-SP is suitable for students who wish to have an overseas experience but:


  • Are not able to be flexible with academic plan due to double major/ double degree commitments
  • Are on accelerated degree programme and has to take core modules within a fixed candidature
  • Do not wish to commit too much time (e.g. a semester) and money overseas
  • Want to have a taste of studying overseas but are not eligible for SEP

Partner Universities for Summer Programmes


Summer programmes offered by partner universities usually start in early June and ends in early August. Different summer programmes have different start and end dates depends on the host university.

    i-SP Application Guide

    Preparing for i-SP

    Preparing for an international summer/winter programme (i-SP) can be a very exciting process. For the best i-SP experience possible, you should select your preferred i-SP from the list of host universities that are recommended by the NUS Global Relations Office (GRO). In preparing for your i-SP, you should research on the course offerings, application requirements and procedures set by the host university. Make sure that you attend the pre-departure briefings conducted by GRO before you embark on your journey.


    To apply for an i-SP recommended by GRO, you must:


    • Be a full-time NUS undergraduate;
    • Complete the programme before your NUS conferment date;
    • Meet the additional requirements (e.g. CAP score, English proficiency, etc.) imposed by the i-SP host university;
    • Have a clean disciplinary record and be a strong ambassador for NUS; any disciplinary misconduct during the programme will be handled according to both the host university and NUS’ policies.

    Refer to the i-SP listings for summer and winter for the range of programmes recommended by GRO. Click on the name of the host university to download an information sheet specific to the programme. In addition to GRO-recommended programmes,you may approach the Dean’s Office of your faculty to find out about faculty-specific i-SP programmes managed by them.You may also wish to:


    • Prepare an initial study plan and check with your home faculty to see if the courses offered by the host university meets your academic objectives. Module mapping request is subjected to approval from the Faculties.
    • Students may map up to a maximum of 10 MCs for each Summer Programme and up to a maximum of 5 MCs for each Winter Programme. Module mapping will be subject to approval from the respective Faculties/Schools.
    • Students who enroll in these Programmes may request for a waiver of NUS tuition fees for the credits they wish to transfer back to NUS. This waiver applies to up to 2 Summer/Winter Programmes and up to a total of 12 MCs transferred during their course of study in NUS. Beyond that, NUS Special Term tuition fees will apply, in addition to Summer/Winter Programme fees paid to the host university. For clarification, students may contact the SEP administrators/coordinators at their respective home Faculty/School Dean's Office or the academic department. Business courses in summer/winter programmes which are less than 3 weeks are not credit bearing.
    • Plan a budget to determine all costs associated with participation in your chosen i-SP. Click here to see estimates of airfare, private accommodation and personal expenses for various cities.

    Applying via EduRec grants you access to:


    • Application for module mapping
    • Application for financial aid

    * Applying through EduRec will allow GRO to contact and assist you in times of crisis/emergency while you are overseas. With an official application through EduRec, GRO can also provide you with supporting letters for visa application and NS deferment (for NSmen).


    Applications for summer programmes will open between November and February. Applications for winter programmes will open between August and October. You should look out for emails from GRO and also visit the our website regularly to check for updates.

    Most host universities require a direct application to be submitted via their online application portals. Unless stated otherwise in the programme information sheet, you should apply to the host university immediately after you have applied in EduRec.


    Follow the application instructions provided by the host university, and submit an application with the necessary supporting documents to the host university before their stipulated deadline. Note that the deadline varies for different programmes. Details of each programme can be found on the summer and winter programmes listing.


    Due to the Personal Data Protection Act, NUS will not have access to the application information that you submit to the host university directly. Host universities, as organisers of the individual programmes, are best-placed to resolve any application issues. You should contact them before you attempt to reach GRO, as this will save you time and effort.

    You are responsible for submitting a complete application with the necessary supporting documents to the host university before the deadline. Please contact the appropriate office to request for relevant supporting documents.

    After Applying

    Acceptance of i-SP

    This section highlights the necessary things to do after you have applied via NUS EduRec and also apply to the host univesity for your i-SP.


    GRO will issue you an offer for your chosen i-SP in EduRec. This offer, when accepted, will allow you to apply for module mapping and financial aid; however, it does not constitute confirmation of your participation in the programme. Confirmation of programme participation will be given by the i-SP host university.


    If you applied for multiple programmes in EduRec and receive more than one offer, note that the system will only permit you to accept multiple offers if the programme dates do not clash. Ideally, you should only accept the offer for an i-SP programme you wish to participate in the most.


    After you have accepted your offer, you will be able to proceed with module mapping in EduRec. Based on GRO’s annual survey, more than 80% of NUS students were able to map the modules they took during their i-SP at the partner universities supported by GRO. Click here for instructions on submitting your module mapping request in EduRec.


    Students may map up to a maximum of 10 MCs for each Summer Programme and up to a maximum of 5 MCs for each Winter Programme. Module mapping will be subject to approval from the respective Faculties/Schools.


    Students who enroll in these Programmes may request for a waiver of NUS tuition fees for the credits they wish to transfer back to NUS. This waiver applies to up to 2 Summer/Winter Programmes and up to a total of 12 MCs transferred during their course of study in NUS. Beyond that, NUS Special Term tuition fees will apply, in addition to Summer/Winter Programme fees paid to the host university. For clarification, students may contact the SEP administrators/coordinators at their respective home Faculty/School Dean's Office or the academic department. Business courses in summer/winter programmes which are less than 3 weeks are not credit bearing.


    Any questions on module mapping and credit conversion should be directed to your home faculty. Law students are generally unable to transfer credit for summer programmes due to their special degree requirements. Please contact the Law SEP coordinator for more details.



    You will also receive an offer directly from the host university, usually via email and together with instructions for making payment for the programme fee. Note that this offer is independent from the EduRec offer given by NUS, and your acceptance of the host university offer constitutes confirmation of your participation. You should only accept the offer and make payment to the host university if you are comfortable with the academic and cost obligations of the respective programme. If you choose to withdraw from the programme at this stage, you should notify the host university, as well as withdraw your application in EduRec (or reject the offer if you have not yet accepted it).


    It is the student’s responsibility to pay the programme fees to the host university directly. Acceptance offers by the host university remains conditional until the full payment of the programme fee is made to the host university. The host university will set the terms and conditions of the acceptance and the payment.


    If you are paying via bank transfer, please read the terms and conditions of payment carefully. Any bank charges and fees for wire transfers are your responsibility, and should be included in the total amount payable in the request to your bank for the transfer.


    Some host universities do not provide university accommodation for i-SP participants. If the university does not provide accommodation, you should start researching and securing accommodation as early as possible. Note that some private accommodation providers will require payment of a non-refundable deposit in order to guarantee your reservation. Read the terms and conditions carefully before you sign and commit to any accommodation arrangements.


    You should have enough monetary funds to last you throughout the whole i-SP programme. Your decision to go on i-SP should not be dependent upon the confirmation of a scholarship or bursary award.


    You can consider the following avenues of financial aid to fund your i-SP.




    Please note that if you are successful for any financial aid, the funds will only be disbursed to you after August (for summer programme) and after January the following year (for winter programme).


    Some host countries requires you to apply for an entry visa prior to departure from Singapore. Please refer to this link for a list of embassies that you can enquire about visa applications.


    Application Procedures

    After you have applied in EduRec and received confirmation of acceptance from the host university, you can request GRO to issue a supporting letter suitable for any of the following purposes:


    • Application for NS Deferment
    • Application for visa to visit country of your i-SP
    • Applications for OSP Loan

    To request for the letter, download this form and follow the instructions listed within.


    You should take note of the host university’s recommended arrival dates for your programme, and join the orientation (if any) conducted for programme participants. Early check-in to on-campus accommodation is usually not allowed and is at the discretion of the host university. Check directly with the host university if there is a pressing need to check-in early.


    You are responsible for purchasing your own air-tickets. Air-tickets should only be bought after you have received the required visa for your i-SP. If a visa is not required, you may proceed to purchase the air-tickets upon the receipt of the official acceptance letter from the host university.The Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) issues helpful travel advisories which you should heed whilst planning your travel itinerary.


    GRO-recommended i-SP programmes are covered under the insurance scheme for official NUS trips. Click here for details about the terms of coverage and process for lodging claims.


    If you require additional insurance coverage for your personal needs, consider purchasing your own personal travel insurance with your preferred insurance provider.


    • Attend the Pre-Departure Briefings conducted by GRO and take the opportunity to network with other students going to the same country and/or host university. Due to the Personal Data Protection Act, GRO is not able to share the contacts of other students with you.
    • Learn how to better represent NUS at your host university during the Pre-Departure Briefings
    • eRegister with MFA – for Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents only
    • Update your contact information and Next-of-Kin information in EduRec, so that NUS will be able to contact you or your family in any case of emergency. GRO will not be able to contact nor assist you, if you do not apply via EduRec for your i-SP.

    Additional Information:


    While on i-SP

    Before you return to NUS

    The i-SP programmes are of shorter duration and it is important to take note of the things which you need to do before you return back to NUS to continue your studies in the next semester.


    Step 1: Arrange the Mailing of Transcripts

    A small number of host universities require you to submit a request for your i-SP transcript, and will provide you with instructions to complete this step.


    The transcripts will either be mailed to you directly or sent to Global Relations Office (GRO), depending on the programme. You will be informed by the Programme Manager nearer the date on how your transcript will be received or you can refer to the information which we have prepared on the programme listing page for summer and winter i-SPs.


    You will need to show the host university’s transcript to your home faculty in order to complete the credit conversion process at NUS.


    Step 2: Complete Online Survey and Attend Feedback Session

    You will receive an email from GRO to complete an online survey about your i-SP experience. This will take 5 to 10 minutes of your time, and your comments will help future batches of NUS students.


    GRO will conduct a feedback session for all returning i-SP participants. The feedback we receives will be useful in the evaluation of the programmes supported by us. During the feedback session, we will also share tips on how to make your summer/ winter experience count in your resume and with your potential employers.


    Step 3: Submit Post-Programme Report

    If you are a recipient of the NASA Enhancement Bursary, you are required to submit a post-programme report. Details about the requirements will be included with your award letter for the NASA Enhancement Bursary.
