The answers to all your queries can be found on our website at http://law.nus.edu.sg/prospective/postgraduate.htm, as well as on the application form itself (this can be downloaded from http://law.nus.edu.sg/prospective/postgrad/application.htm). But for convenience, here are the responses:

1. The application form (downloaded from above website) is to be sent to us (preferably by courier) with all supporting documents (see application form for instructions - applicants must gather supporting documents like transcripts and referees' reports and submit everything together in one package)
2. The application fee is 30 Singapore Dollars, to be made out to the National University of Singapore through a bank draft (credit card payment is possible - see application form)
3. Documents can be in photocopy - in single number except for referees' reports and transcripts
4. If applicants apply to more than one programme, he/she should simply indicate preference for first, second and third choice programme on the form. Only one application fee is needed, except if applicant is also applying for the LLM (Int'l Business Law) programme (which is taught partly in Shanghai). That has a separate application form (see our website) which needs to be submitted.

Hi Mr Alan Tan,

I am in the process of applying to NUS's Master of Laws (Maritime Law) programme. I have requested for my official transcript from the unversity but till to date, I am still awaiting for it. Given that the closing date is drawing near, would NUS accept certified true copy of my transcript and upon receipt of the original transcipt, I would immediately forward to NUS?

The weightage is the same, just that the course can be stretched out over 2 years, instead of 1, for the part-time course. However, the part-time option is only accorded to professionals who are already working in Singapore, and supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. For all other students, especially foreign students coming to Singapore for the first time, the LLM (Maritime Law) should be done on a full-time, one-year basis.
