Overview

Education

Courses are focused on Asia, and some of these courses will feature a 5-9 days’ field trip to the country of study. Our Centre for Language Studies will also offer relevant Asian language courses that will complement the field trips for a comprehensive learning experience and in-depth cultural immersion.

You can read up to 2 courses, including one that offers an extended overseas field trip. Other courses may also offer local day trips in Singapore or to nearby overseas location over the weekend in order to facilitate experiential learning outside the classroom.

FASStrack Asia will be based at the University Town (UTown for short) at NUS. This recent campus expansion of NUS is a high-tech, modern educational hub that integrates environmental-friendly building features with the learning, social and cultural aspects of the NUS community. 

Besides classrooms, UTown is also well-equipped with IT and multimedia facilities at the Education Resource Centre, seminar rooms and study clusters, and a world-class research and innovation hub. For recreation, there are also sports and performing arts facilities, as well as a wide array of dining and retail outlets. 

Students from the The FASStrack Asia - the Summer School course at the National University of Singapore staying on-campus at the residential colleges can live, study and play in NUS as part of an exciting summer programme experience.
