Graduation requirements for different programmes and cohorts may vary due to changes in curriculum.
The Department requires all its students to confirm a thesis supervisor by the end of their first year in NUS.
For students who are ready to submit thesis:
Students are required to submit a bi-annual research progress report online. Find out more.
Students who are holding scholarships are required to apply for leave in advance if they have to be away at any time during their candidature (either for personal or academic reasons). They can only physically away after their leave applications have been approved. Find out more about the leave schemes available.
Students who are not scholarship-holders are required to apply for Leave of Absence if they have to be away during their candidature.
All leave applications are to be submitted online. Students who are absent without leave are subject to disciplinary actions.
