It will not be possible to complete a year abroad at this University if you have any assessments, such as supplementary or deferred exams, during the August assessment period at Swansea University.

Important Considerations

  • It is best to arrive in the mid-week just before the start of the semester. This allows you to attend the Orientation Briefing (usually held on Thursday or Friday) and gives you time to settle into your new surroundings.
  • Students arriving at NTU after the add/drop period (Teaching week 1 and 2) must understand that they will not be allowed to make modifications to their registered
    courses. Late arrivals are expected to begin attending classes no later than the start of Teaching week 3. There are no options available for remote learning.
  • You'll need a passport sized photo for your application. There are strict photo guidelines which will be shared with you.
  • You cannot select modules from the School of Computer Science and Engineering. Engineering courses are offered in their other 5 Engineering schools.
  • You are required to hold a valid Student’s Pass (STP) issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) for the duration of your programme.
  • If your programme duration at NTU exceeds 6 months, you must undergo a health screening after arrival as part of the Student’s Pass requirements.
    You will be guided through the process for the application of the STP after you accept your offer of Study, issued by NTU.
  • There are some compulsory miscellaneous fees to pay to meet part of the costs of university services such as IT, amenities etc. The estimated cost is between S$260 and S$300.
  • All exchange students must be insured under the NTU student insurance schemes: Group Personal Accident Insurance (GPAI), Group Hospitalisation & Surgical Insurance (GHSI) and Medical scheme. This applies even if you
    have existing coverage. The cost of the NTU student insurance premiums is included in the compulsory NTU miscellaneous fees.
