Internship & Further Education

Graduate studies leading to Higher Degrees

BIC (Resources) does not have a Graduate Programme in Bioinformatics. Prospective students interested in graduate studies under the Bioinformatics Programme, NUS, are invited to:

  • Contact the School of Computing if your project is more suitably offered under the School of Computing or if your prospective supervisors come under the School of Computing. Please see http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/graduates for criteria in computing.
  • Contact Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine if your project is more suitably offered under Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine or if your prospective supervisors come under Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. Please see http://medicine.nus.edu.sg/ for details.
  • Contact the Faculty of Science if your project is more suitably offered under the Faculty of Science or if your prospective supervisors come under the Faculty of Science. Please see http://www.science.nus.edu.sg/graduate-studies for details.

 

For general information about scholarships and graduate studies, please see http://www.nus.edu.sg/registrar/graduate/contacts.htm

Prospective students already qualified under the various criteria in School of Computing/Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine/Faculty of Science are advised to identify a suitable Professor/Supervisor first, and to discuss their prospective research projects with them in advance.

Non-Graduating Internships/Attachments

For non-degree internships or attachments, please note that we do not have any scheme for financing. All internships and attachments have to be on a fully self-financed basis. The Bioinformatics Programme may be able to waive bench fees and other charges on a case by case basis. All interested candidates are to provide their own finances for board and lodging and return airfare, stating their preference for a specific project topic and/or desired professor, and the duration of the internship/attachment period.

This category also applies to students from other institutions who have their own requirements for graduating, requiring internship or research attachments at institutions such as ours. In such cases, if fully financed, we can provide a statement of proof and reports certifying the student’s successful completion of an internship or attachment.

These attachments are to be negotiated directly with the professor concerned.
