At the meeting, the admissions officer of TUM Asia introduced the development advantages of the Asian campus of TUM in Singapore. The key information of the Master programmes that are available to SZTU students was explained in detail, including the admission requirements and process, scholarship application, future employment and other related matters.
In the question and answer session, students actively asked questions on admission qualifications, scholarship quotas, and other related matters. The admissions officer clarified all the doubts from the students and stated that In order to encourage more students from its partner university to apply for the Master programmes, TUM Asia will reserve 5 scholarship quotas for SZTU students who meet the scholarship application requirements.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, international cooperation in SZTU has been carrying out via the online platform. The information session is a catalyst to promote the cooperation in educational exchanges and curriculum sharing between SZTU and TUM Asia, which will offer more options for SZTU students who seek further education.
With the first intake starting in October this year, the TUM Asia Gruduate Programmes is designed primarily for those who plan to study abroad and graduate with a reputable certificate. There are currently five 2-year full-time programmes, in which students need to complete the course work in Singapore first, and then finish the 2-3-month internship and 6-month Master thesis in either Singapore or their home country.
