How do you apply

How do you apply?


Applications

Applications

  • All students must complete NJC Research application forms

  • Students applying to external programme such as NRP are strongly encouraged to complete and submit the forms even though NJC is not the organiser.

  • You will be shortlisted for the RMT.


Applications1

Applications

  • Application to H3 and non-H3 programmes is mutually exclusive.

  • For non-H3 programmes, students can submit multiple applications to E-STaR, NRP, MOE Attachment or REAP but only 1 offer will be made eventually.

  • Students interested to take H3 can apply to either SRP or H3 STaR or both but only 1 offer will be made eventually.

  • Timeline: refer to handout and look out for announcement
