Call for Applications: NUS-in-Yale Summer Programme
30 May – 1 July 2016
The programme is a 5-week study stint at Yale University during its Summer Session A.
Selected NUS students will study and interact with Yale students, stay at Yale residential colleges and experience various aspects of Yale undergraduate life. Students will select two modules in the humanities and social sciences.
More details on the Yale Summer Session are available at http://summer.yale.edu (note that NUS-in-Yale refers to Yale Summer Session A only).
This programme is open to Year 1 and 2 students of USP and USP partner faculties (BIZ, FASS, FOE, FOS, SDE, SOC and LAW), with a minimum CAP of 3.5 (Law students can disregard the CAP stipulation, since the Law faculty is not on the modular system).
Priority will be given to Year 2 students.
For selected USP students, substitution credit can be given for one inquiry tier USP module. The two modules taken at Yale may substitute for major/faculty requirements upon approval by the department or faculty; approval may be sought through the usual procedure for SEP module substitution. USP students are encouraged to further develop what they have learned in these programmes through supervised independent study.
For selected non-USP students, approval from home faculty or department should be sought for module substitution/mapping.
NUS provides a substantial student grant to cover the programme fees. Each student selected for this programme will:
- Co-pay a sum of SGD 2,500; plus
- Purchase and arrange his/her own return air ticket and visa.
As this programmes is already heavily subsidised, there will be no further NASA funding.
USP will advise on travel dates.
Please apply HERE along with submission of the following:
