Dean's Welcome Tea and Science Freshmen Orientation Briefing 2017 

The Dean of Science, Professor Shen Zuowei, will be hosting the Dean's Welcome Tea on 19 July 2017 to welcome all Freshmen.

We have lined up a series of talks to introduce Freshmen to the various faculty members in the Faculty and Departments, the academic programmes and unlimited learning opportunities available for you, and most importantly, tip you on how to choose the best learning pathway that suits your interest. Through this event, you will also learn how to manage the modules bidding system (CORS).

The event will run from 8:30am to 4:30pm at the Lim Seng Tjoe Lecture Theatre (LT 27),  at the Faculty of Science. All Freshmen are strongly encouraged to attend these talks to gain a better understanding of the NUS modular system, the Science curriculum as well as your degree and major requirements.

Freshmen interested in the Special Programme in Science (SPS), are also invited to attend the SPS Programme Talk at 4:30pm. The venue is at Faculty of Science, Blk S16, Level 3 Room 2. Light refreshments will be served.

You will be updated of the detailed programme and talk schedule via your personal email by early July 2017.
