Dear AUN partners,
Greetings from the National University of Singapore!
We are pleased to share with you the newly formed Global Relations Office (GRO) at NUS, which is a result of a consolidation and re-organization of the University & Global Relations (UGR) Office and the International Relations Office. Since 1 January 2018, GRO oversees, manages and undertakes the promotion of the University’s global relations, as well as the advancement of NUS’ global vision with respect to the engagement of partners and institutions worldwide.
Like previous years, we are delighted to work closely with you again for your student nominations for the Temasek Foundation International Leadership Enrichment and Regional Networking (TF Int’l LEaRN) Programme @ NUS for Academic Year 2018/2019. This programme aims to nurture the next generation of Asian leaders by providing opportunities for cultural exchange, networking, community engagement and leadership development to students during their exchange at NUS. Many of your students have benefited through their participation in the programme at NUS in the past years.

Nominated students must complete the NUS Non-graduating Exchange Programme
application form at https://myaces.nus.edu.sg/ngAdmForm/
between 21 March and 15 April 2018. This form is required in order for us to process the students’ application to study at NUS for one semester. If this form is not completed, then the TFI LEaRN Programme application will automatically NOT be considered.
- Application Outcome
Students will be informed of their application outcome for the TFI LEaRN Programme @ NUS by early-May through their email, by which they will need to confirm acceptance of
the award within 1 week after receiving the offer.
By mid-June, the Registrar’s Office will notify the students on the outcome of their NGE application, more specifically on their module selection outcome.
As an additional note, students who are not eventually selected for the TFI LEaRN Programme @ NUS will not be eligible to proceed with their application to do an exchange programme at NUS in Semester 1 with a fee waiver. These students may, however, consider to apply for Non-Graduating Non-Exchange
which requires them to pay the NUS tuition fees
for the semester that they are enrolled at NUS. Alternatively, students may be nominated by their home universities under the AUN-ACTS exchange agreement, which allows students to be nominated through the AUN-ACTS portal to come to NUS for exchange (with tuition waiver) in Semester 2 (Jan-May). However, places for the AUN-ACTS nominations are very limited and therefore very competitive.
For your easy reference on the application process, please refer to the flowchart attached
Thank you and we look forward to receive your nominations and the students’ applications soon!
