Classes & Exams for AY2022/2023
Update on 16 Aug 2022
  • Students should expect to participate fully in university life and come back for face-to-face classes for all their modules. This excludes the lectures for courses in which instructors are developing Blended Learning as part of the university’s plan to create high-quality, integrated e-learning materials to enhance learning flexibility and effectiveness.
  • Instructors are also no longer obligated to make video recordings of their classes or to set up hybrid arrangements. The university has discussed and explained the key considerations for this to the NUS Students’ Union (NUSSU) previously. Thus, if students are not able to attend classes due to valid reasons including COVID-19, they should discuss with their course instructor on the next steps.
  • Students should continue to be responsible for their health and upload their self-administered Antigen Rapid Test (ART) to uNivUS, should they test positive for COVID-19.
    • If the first self-administered ART result is positive, students will be excused from classes (including lectures, tutorials and other academic activities) and assessment(s) from Days 1 to 7 inclusive, where Day 1 refers to the day that students first test positive.
    • If students are still COVID-19 positive from Day 8 onwards, they will need to upload a self-administered ART showing that they are still testing positive, to uNivUS. This will then serve as a valid excuse from classes and assessment(s).

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 or 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.



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.
