    Special Consideration – IC Grade
     Special consideration (IC grade) may NOT be granted to
     students who missed examinations and did not have
     reasonable performance in Continual Assessments (CA).

     Even with the submission of MCs & other supporting
     documents, special considerations would only be made on a
     case-by-case basis.

     Besides diligently attending lectures and tutorials, students are
     expected to put in efforts for their CAs.

    Classroom/lab work & tests (CA) are important …

                                                         Why Exchange Abroad?
                            HAVE AN ADVENTURE –
                            Here's your chance to trek through the Grand Canyon, look out from
                                 the top of the Eiffel Tower, or ski the Swiss Alps. You'll make
                                 memories to last a lifetime as you see new places and
                                 experience cultures you've only read about.

                            INVIGORATE YOUR CURIOUSITY –
                            Get a fresh perspective on the subjects you study. Learn an American's
                                  perspective on world politics or German's insights into molecular
                                  biology. The Student Exchange Program allows you study with the
                                  best students at the best institutions around the world.

                            DEVELOP VALUABLE LANGUAGE SKILLS –
                            There is no better way to learn a language than by immersing yourself in it
                                 every day. Learn how people on the street use the language and get to
                                 know all those words they will never teach you in class.

                            STRENGTHEN YOUR RESUME –
                            Studying abroad can give you the skills employers desire, such as
                                 versatility, maturity, confidence, independence, and the ability
                                 to work with people of different cultures.


                            CREATE A NEW AND IMPROVED YOU –
                            Make lifelong friends, experience a new culture, bust out of the same old
                                    routine. Studying abroad is what you make of it, and many make it the time of
                                    their lives.
