People

UNSW Asia aims to establish a high international profile by allocating at least 70% of its intake to non-Singaporeans. Applications are expected to be open in January 2006 for the pioneering batch of about 500 to 600 students, and will begin classes in March 2007. Prior to that, however, the university will commence a 40-week Foundation Studies program [1] in January 2006 as an independent pre-university course for prospective students, including a course in the English language. Open to both Singaporeans and international students - though Singaporeans have to be above 18 and males need to complete National Service before enrolling, it will initially offer courses in commerce and the physical sciences. Singaporean Students will also need to have an aggregate score of below 20 for GCE 'O' Levels and a minimum of C6 for English Language. Successful completion of the course will guarantee a place in UNSW Asia, although they may also apply to enter the Australian campuses.
