Graduate Admission for SoC Students in the French DDP
Upon returning from two-year study in France, students from the School of Computing in the French DDP (hereafter called "SoC students") will be enrolled in the final year of their undergraduate studies. They (SoC students) are encouraged to have planned for their Honours year projects before their return to Singapore, and are expected to complete their Honours year project within one or two semesters after their return. Students have to seek approval from the SoC Office of Undergraduate Studies (UG Office) (COM1 #02-19) if they wish to complete their Honours project within one semester by 15 September of the same year since project spans over 2 regular semesters.
- During the first semester after their return, SoC students must begin to apply for admission to the graduate programme within SoC. The UG Office will provide recommendations to support their application for Graduate Studies’ Office (GD Office) to make offers to deserving candidates. Students can contact SoC Graduate Studies’ Office for the necessary instructions for such applications.
- Once admitted, SoC students can begin their graduate programme in the second semester after their return. In addition, they can "pre-take" some of the graduate modules during their undergraduate studies if they have not embarked on graduate studies candidature. The rule for such "pre-taking" of modules has been laid down by the University. Students must inform FDDP administrator (UG Office) of pre-taking Graduate level modules to be excluded from UG CAP computation during ModReg exercise.
- The UG Office will provide stipend and tuition waiver for SoC students after their return to NUS (subject to satisfactory performance and funds available) and before they are accepted to the graduate programme. Once in the graduate programme, they will be offered research scholarship by the GD Office for a year, and up to a maximum of one and a half years and subject to satisfactory performance. Policy and guidelines for scholarship for graduate students are subject to changes and can be found in the NUS Graduate School’s website.
- SoC students will be conferred the Diplome d'Ingenieur (from French Grandes Ecoles), and thus completing their pursuit in French DDP, by taking one of the following routes:
- They fulfill the requirements for Master of Science (4 modules, one lab rotation and an MSc thesis) and graduate with the MSc degree from SoC
- They pass the qualifying examination plus 4 graduate modules and officially accept the offer to the PhD programme. Upon accepting the PhD programme, they are considered as completed their French DDP degree, and they will be subjected to the rules and regulation governed by the PhD programme.
