I’m sorry if there’s another thread with the same subject, I couldn’t not find it.

Was wondering if anybody knows how hard is to get into this program and into NUS in general. I applied like a month and a half ago and everything went fine, the admissions unit told me they will notify me in case I need to do an interview most likely in february, and then, results will come out in batches from april-may.

A little about my profile/background:

- Bachelors degree with honors in International Relations at National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)

- GPA: 3.7/4 or 9.25/10 (mexican grading system)

- Academic exchange at University of São Paulo (USP). Also completed two postgraduate workshops in IR and Political Science. 

- Work experience:  Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the Undersecretariat of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights.

- Don’t know if it counts but as my undergraduate project I carried out a thesis. 

 

Thanks in advance :)

Heeey, thank you very much for the reply, i thought this was going to be a forgotten thread.

 again, thank for the compliments ;) yeah, i’m also looking for financial aid, either from the uni or look elsewhere for a loan. 

im just wondering the “selectivity” since i’ve got a bad experience with sciences po, hope LKY is more flexible regarding admissions 🤞🤞🤞

Good luck with your application :)

 

btw, what do you mean "bad"? What happened with your application at sciences po?

i didn’t get it, the reason was “i wasn’t clear enough with my professional goals” which is weird because in my personal letter i am very explicit about it.

another thing is, in a forum like this i found out several students with no academic or professional experience in IR or master program (international security) got in. it happens 🤷‍♂️

again, tyvm 🙌

True, it happens.. But at least you got feedback! Other schools would just leave you clueless which is sad bec you'll never know which part of the application you fell short, right? 😊

Hello there! No idea how competitive it is, but I'm also eagerly awaiting results. I saw some stats elsewhere on here saying scholarship interviews and results were in February in previous years. Hoping to hear back from LKY soon!!
