  #1 Old 19-12-2010 Cool All About Admission Into NUS (2011/2012 Cohort)

Hi all.

It is almost the end of 2010. Here's a thread to discuss about entry into National University of Singapore (NUS). Whether it's about the financial matters, administrative information, accommodation, student life or studies. Feel free to discuss anything related to NUS.

Also, do get to know one another before going to NUS. Believe me, the number of recomers in NUS is astounding.

I will try to help out as much as I can (and try to get the other seniors too). I was in the same position last year too and the previous thread really helped out alot. Well, a little self-intro. I am Li Shan Shung. Accepted into NUS Faculty of Science 2010, Life sciences major.

Let's get this thread going!

List of successful applicants to NUS.

I have just finished my SAM this year. Got my results and all and I want to apply for NUS.

I am just wondering if the ESL (English as secondary language) subject we took is enough for its english requirement? Since it writes there English Language, and not ESL.. Just wondering.

Link is here

Also wondering, what are the chances of being accepted into NUS if I just passed the requirement (ATAR 90) without any SAT or any other results?

1. Sorry that I am unable to answer your first question. Not sure.

2. It depends on how competitive the course you are applying for. Though I can say it outright that you don't stand a chance at all in applying for extremely competitive courses like Medicine and Dentistry without other qualifications. So try not to put those on your lists. But for the other courses, it really depends on the competitiveness of your cohort.

Only those applying for medicine, dentistry, law, architecture and nursing are required to go for interviews. No interviews needed for other faculty admissions.

can i know how much it going to cost for study at NUS . I know after deduct tuition grant , a foreign student still need to pay as much as 10k SG for engineering course .and for those senior who have already been there , can i know about the approximate living cost(cover food ,transport,live , book........) based on your current experience?

NUS website there said (The University is committed to providing a quality education for all our students and to ensuring that no deserving student is denied admissions because of financial difficulty.), it sounds fancy , but bursaries provide by them really going to help much? (i not good enough to get scholarship)

finally , is there any other way to get financial help other than NUS office of admission ?

I did my calculation before I reject NUS offer to read Computing this year. I had all the financial aids any International Students can get (exclude scholarship, I mean) and also a special exception from datelines on certain documents. It is roughly MYR 150k as a secure back-up of 4 years.
