We welcome queries if you have any. First, be sure to visit our website at http://www.law.nus.edu.sg/prospective/postgraduate.htm and click on the grey information links on the left of that page. You will find the application forms there, as well as other relevant information such as tuition fees, scholarships and accommodation. The application forms, in particular, will detail all the documents/materials that you will need to present.

Dear Sir, I am a student from India, keen on gaining admission into NUS. Sir, I have been brought up at home with English as one of the principle languages of communication, in school the medium of instruction was english and in college for my LLB, the medium was again English.

Is the TOEFL mandatory for all students coming from Non - English speaking countries ?

Hello from Panama.

My question is about the tuition fee. It says for the LLM (International Business Law), that it will be S$10,000.

Is that amount for the entire year or is it per semester?

Thanks in advance.

In response to the earlier query, yes, TOEFL or IELTS is mandatory for students from non-English speaking countries. For students from countries such as India, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Nigeria where legal education is conducted in English, we can also waive the TOEFL/IELTS requirement.

In reference to the TOEFL: can I submit the rest of the required documents now, and the results later, because it will be taken via internet and the grades can be sent directly to the NUS.

Indian students should attach a document attested by their law school authorities that the medium of instruction has been English. In such cases, we can provide a waiver of the TOEFL/IELTS requirement.

Hi everybody,

I'm a student in the current International Business Law batch for the class of 09.

So we just moved, after nearly three awesome months in Singapore, to Shanghai and get our life started here.

I'm from Germany and maybe I can give all prospective friends some inside view to NUS Law and especially regarding IBL, all from my student perspective.

Wish you all the best with your applications. It's a bit of work with all the documents but I can tell you one thing: It is worth all the hazzle and even more!

Cheers

It is said that the University requires 92 for Internet TOEFL score, would there be any exception for those who receive 91 as their TOEFL score? do we have to take test again to be admitted for the program?

In response to the last two posts:

1. We only have an intake in August, not in January. However, we are open to students enrolling in August and taking a short break in September to go back and take their Bar examinations.

2. We are strict with our TOEFL/IELTS requirements. As such, we would advise anyone who scores lower than the minimum to re-take the TOEFL/IELTS. You can submit your applications first by the deadline, and forward the TOEFL/IETLS results to us later when you receive them. That is entirely acceptable.

We look forward to receiving your applications.

If you are applying for the LLM (International Business Law) programme, a separate application is needed.

If you are applying for any of the other LLM programmes, only one application is needed - you can indicate your choice of specialisations on the application form itself (ranking them by priority).

Dear Mr. Tan,

I would like to know if the admissions at NUS are "rolling basis" for the Masters in Law and the Business Law programs?

Furthermore, I would like to know if I can send the TOEFL registration before receiving the results?

Thanking you in advance.

Your sincerely.

In response to the above query - no, we do not use a "rolling" basis. All applications are accepted during the application period, and assessed once the deadline passes. If students need to have an expedited decision, we can accommodate that.

If your TOEFL results only come out after the application deadline, you should send your application forms first, and submit the results later.
