⊗ NO. OF COURSES FOR COURSE SELECTION IN APPLICATION
· Exchange students MUST select at least 10 courses for approval. This is to ensure that they have adequate number of approved courses prior to their arrival in NTU (if your application is accepted for admission to NTU).
· Exchange students should list their 10 courses in order of preference.
· If they do not have enough approved courses, or choose to apply for new course(s) to read after their arrival in NTU, course approval shall be subject to pre-requisites and vacancies available. It shall not be guaranteed that they will be offered the course(s) and their course registration will be delayed.
· Exchange students are strongly encouraged not to deviate from the list of approved courses. It is imperative that courses selected are approved by the home institution and deemed necessary for their academic progression.

· Postgraduate students can choose both undergraduate and postgraduate courses but must select at least 5 postgraduate courses in their application.

Allocation of accommodation shall be subjected to availability, through a random balloting system (not base on first-come-first serve basis). Request for roommates or transfer of halls shall not be entertained.
· As on-campus housing is NOT guaranteed to exchange students, students must be prepared to live off-campus should their application for on-campus housing be unsuccessful. Due to limited on-campus housing, near 60% of our exchange students have to stay off-campus.
· Students who are unsuccessful in their on-campus housing application shall be recommended off-campus housing at hostels located within bus rides to NTU.
