The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at The National University of Singapore will be offering FASStrack Asia: the Summer School from 23 June to 25 July in 2014.

As Asia undergoes rapid growth and changes, this 5-week summer school will focus on Asian-related topics and issues so students can gain a better understanding of the region. Students in the summer school will attend classes, participate in active discussions and go on field trips with academic experts. NUS offer courses related to East Asia and Southeast Asia, as well as in Economics and various Asian language courses. Some of them will feature an 8 to 10 days’ field trip to countries such as China, Korea, Japan, Cambodia and Thailand, as well as local field trips in Singapore.

Students will stay on-campus at their new residential colleges and combine living, studying and playing on-campus for a comprehensive summer experience in NUS. To encourage diversity and cultural exchange, there will be social activities and events for student get-togethers and a chance for international students to experience Singapore, and explore the rest of Asia!
