Communications
Due to a large number of applicants seeking admission in each application cycle, we regret that we will not be able to attend to enquiries on the status of applications or receipt of documents. If you are concerned about the delivery of your documents, you may wish to consider sending your application via registered mail or courier service.

If clarifications are needed, we will communicate with you primarily using email. It is very important that you provide a valid and correct email address and maintain your email account regularly. We will not be responsible for undeliverable emails and their consequences.

 

 

Application Outcome
Applicants will be informed via email of the outcome by early April 2021.

Applicants who applied to the Juris Doctor programme will be informed via email of the shortlist outcome. All shortlisted applicants must undergo an interview and a written test, which will be conducted between February and March.

Where the applications involve International Business Law (IBL) and other LLM coursework programmes, two offers may be made simultaneously to very strong applicants.
 
Unless granted approval by our University, no candidate may concurrently be a student for more than one degree or register as an NUS candidate and of another university/institute.

Inaccurate or false information or omission of material information or no application fee payment will render your application invalid.
