    I am sort of worrying that Duke-NUS is trying to hold all decisions for international applicants till the end.

    That wouldn’t be very “rolling admissions” of them would it?

    We should get something by Feb. I doubt that they will receive many applications in Jan 19.

    But I am seriously thinking about re-application.

    Proteinworker, have you received an interview offer yet? Based on forums from previous years, applicants receive offers up till June/July just before classes are confirmed for the year.

    Still early. Relax. You may be invited for Applicant Day on 21 Jan or early Feb. I submitted around Aug.

    No. Singapore PR. Possibly the smallest group in every intake. LOL.

    Nah, 21 jan is pretty soon and I heard that they usually send out interview offers a week or two prior to the applicant day. I am really worried.
    If aug, I'm pretty sure you should be hearing from them sooner than you think though :)

    I have some volunteering experiences but I have significant research experience. Why? Do you know about the selection process for singaporeans? I think they look more at grades and I don't have the best grades to be honest, very average and maybe even below lol.
    Do you have volunteering/leadership/research exp?

    I don't think so. They group Singapore Citizen and Singapore PR as one.

    I have super strong research experience but lack volunteering experience.

    I was actually mocked by one interviewer for having little volunteering experience.;)

    No. Look at my reply. I am not a re-applicant this cycle. Possibly next cycle.

    I think you are also anxious on this forum.Relax.

    I contacted the admissions department. They mentioned while they continue to release offers up until june/july just before classes begin for that year, applicants should hear of an outcome by April. So I guess we all still have some time. Painful wait..... :(

    Hi guys, would like some advice here. I will be in my final year of studies at NUS soon and have the option to do an internship or fyp to fulfil my honours requirement. I have 2 years of research experience including a UROPs. However, I am not too confident about going for the fyp during my honours year but at the same time, I understand that duke-nus looks favourably at research. Can I ask if my chances of admission to duke-nus will be lowered if I choose to do an internship instead of the fyp that I see most people are doing?

    Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Will you be doing an internship in a clinical/hospital setting?
