Staying Safe

 

C Icons COVID 19 Safety

In light of the easing of community Safe Management Measures (SMMs) in Singapore, all vaccinated NUS staff and students will not require a Fast and Easy Testing (FET) ART result to enter campus from Mon 4 April onwards. View the full version of the circular here.

Check in on the TraceTogether app and turn on your smartphone's bluetooth function when on campus.

Wear a mask if you’re heading indoors. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, do not go to class or any other common areas such as canteens or study areas where you may inadvertently infect others. Please go directly to the University Health Centre (UHC), or any other clinic to seek immediate medical advice/attention.

If you’re medically eligible, sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible. 

  • Eligible students would have received an SMS invitation to book your vaccination. For students under the age of 18, the SMSes have been sent to your parents or legal guardians instead as parental/guardian consent is required for your vaccination. If you have not received your SMS invitation, please log in with your NUSNET ID to https://forms.office.com/r/wm2TewKDR3 to update your Singapore-registered mobile number in our student records. Please view NUS Office of Safety, Health & Environment’s (OSHE) Circular 18 for more info.
  • NUS staff under the age of 40 would have earlier received an SMS invitation to book your vaccination. If you have not received your SMS invitation, please let NUS know, at ohrbox5@nus.edu.sg
    To avoid duplicate entries within the system, staff should not self-register again via www.vaccine.gov.sg if you have already booked your vaccination appointment under the MOE prioritisation exercise. Please view NUS Office of Safety, Health & Environment’s (OSHE) Circular 17 for more info.
  • As announced on 10 June 2021, Singaporeans aged 12 to 39 years can register interest for vaccination via www.vaccine.gov.sg from 11 June 2021. We encourage Class of 2021 graduates to sign up for vaccination if they are medically eligible.

Classes & Exams for AY 2022/2023

Update on 20 May 2022
  • NUS Computing will be having maximal face-to-face classes for the coming academic year. As such, in-person attendance is expected for all NUS Computing modules (including lectures, tutorials, labs, exams and any other module components). Students who are overseas are expected to return to NUS for classes by the time the new semester starts.
  • Exceptions may be considered only for individuals who are unable to attend classes in-person due to the prevailing regulations of the Singapore government.
  • The timetables for AY2022/2023 will be published on https://nusmods.com/ or https://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/cugresource/soc-sched/ by mid to end June 2022.

 
Update on 16 March 2022
  • Mask-on classes, lectures, exams
    • All mask-on classes, lectures, exams and non-SSG funded Continuing Education and Training (CET) programmes can be conducted without any zoning or VDS requirements. Safe distancing is encouraged, but not required between individuals or groups. Classes may have up to 1,000 participants (inclusive of instructors and other staff on-site).
  • Mask-off classes
    • Mask-off classes will continue to be capped at no more than 30 persons, including the trainer(s), with VDS. Classes involving mask-off activities are to be conducted in groups of no more than 5 persons, with strict 1m safe distancing between groups.
 
Update on 17 December 2021

In alignment with the national stance to return to normalcy as a COVID-19 resilient nation, the University intends to accelerate our technology-enhanced education trajectory, and resume face-to-face (F2F) classes wherever appropriate, to the extent allowed by prevailing Safe Management Measures.

As shared in our earlier announcement in October 2021, in-person attendance is expected for all NUS Computing modules with F2F classes and exams.

As international travel to Singapore is now possible, all international students are expected to attend classes in-person in Semester 2 of AY 2021/2022. Undergraduate students who are still overseas are required to make arrangements to travel to Singapore immediately.

 
Update on 11 October 2021

With the high vaccination rates in our NUS community, NUS Computing will be having maximal F2F classes for next semester with prevailing safe management measures.

In-person attendance is expected for all NUS Computing modules with F2F classes and exams.

For such modules, the online option will only be made available for students who are:

1. Serving Self isolation Orders issued by Singapore’s Ministry of Health (MOH), or Stay Home Notices issued by Singapore’s Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA)
2. Affected by border controls that are listed on the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority’s (ICA) website
3. Facing travel restrictions imposed by governments (supporting documents from Local Officials are required)

If your situation does not belong to any of these categories, you are expected to attend classes and exams in person.

 

Internships

 

G Icons COVID 19 Internships

NUS Computing has taken additional measures to help students whose internships are affected by the pandemic.

Please click here for more information.

 
Update on 16 March 2022

Students on internships and trainees on work-study programmes are required to adhere to MOM’s Workforce Vaccination Measures (WVM) which are applicable to their respective host company. Students on internships and work-study trainees who are unvaccinated are encouraged to work remotely to fulfill their programme requirements if they are able to do so. Alternatively, NUS departments can consider arranging for unvaccinated Pre-Employment Training (PET) students to complete alternative assessments/projects on-campus instead. This potential on-campus arrangement does not apply to CET trainees on work-study programmes.
