NUS-LLM( INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW)2012-13


r.l.

Thanks Herb. One of my main concerns is cost, and from what you've said it seems manageable. Would you be able to give me a round about estimate of monthly expenses in Shanghai? I'm lucky in that I can stay with family in Singapore!

Costs are hard to estimate. I would say that living in the dorm you can get by with US$300 a month. Not living in the dorms you can spend upwards of US$1200 a month.

Cultural factors play a big role here. If you are German or European, you are likely to spend more than the Chinese or Indian. That being said, I can think of one Indian girl who outspent us Americans.

Again, if you are willing to eat at Halal and the street vendors every meal, you can get away with US$5 a day for food. If you like to go to the ex-pat restaurants, be prepared to spend at least US$10 or more a meal.

Also, check out the all you can eat sushi, teppanyaki and Indian places. For US$15 - 30 you can eat and drink like a king!

hi RK
've copied and pasted whats on the site of NU regarding the LLM without specialisation...
"In order to obtain a specialization, students will have to complete 24 credits or 6 subjects (out of a possible 40 credits or 10 subjects) in a relevant subject area specialization. These students will then have the option of graduating with an LLM degree with the specific specialization indicated on their degree scrolls, or an LLM degree with no specialization indicated. Alternatively, students may opt from the outset to take any 40 credits of subjects and graduate with an LLM degree with no specialization. The latter option affords maximum flexibility in course selection according to the students individual preferences and interests. "
have you applied this year.....

Hi everyone, I've also applied for the IBL for 2012/2013 and like most of you I'm waiting for the decision of NUS about the intake. Does anyone know what could be the earliest date of the announcement of that decision? Cheers
