Breaking News! Gean shared with us at the briefing that NOC is prepared to let all Orbital students who achieve Project Gemini and above a straight exemption to Round 2 (final) selection interviews for the NOC programme. Get your leg up on your application for this flagship NUS programme by participating in Orbital this summer!
This just in: NUS Overseas Colleges, the hallmark NUS programme that supercharges exchange programmes and local industrial experiences is in cahoots with SoC’s Orbital programme. This means a big break for those of you angling for NOC.
NOC is a year-long overseas attachment at a global city that pairs you with a paid internship at start-up to learn firsthand the wide range of responsibilities needed, as well as giving you academic and entrepreneurial acumen as a student attached to a prestigious university. In the two cities where Orbital students are often attached, that is NYU Poly for New York City and Stanford for Silicon Valley. Such an experience will set you apart from many peers at other institutions but also from other peers within NUS and even SoC.
NOC Head of Marketing and Selection Processes Gean Chu will be coming to the Orbital briefing on the 11th to describe the pathways forward after Orbital. She will give you the lowdown on NOC and describe why your Orbital summer gives you the leg-up on the application process for NOC.
