Calendar of Events for Freshmen

On behalf of NUS School of Computing, a warm welcome to the undergraduate studies in School of Computing!

Even though the first semester begins on 5 August 2019, we have lined up a series of events for you as early as one month before the semester begins.

It is important that you attend these activities to familiarise yourself with the course structure and degree requirements, and at the same time, be oriented on the use of computing facilities and academic culture in the School. Please also remember to submit your application for various placement tests that are applicable to you by our closing dates.

Faculty and Departmental Course Briefings have been rescheduled to 18 July 2019 to allow freshmen to fully participate in the other orientation programmes planned by our Computing Club.  Please refer to: for details.
