If you have an idea that will help to bring fellow Singaporeans closer together, we will be happy to support. You can make it happen through the Overseas Singaporean Funding Programme (OSFP). We provide seed funding for ground-up initiatives that promote a sense of community and connection to home.

Pre-Departure Session cum Inter-generation meetup

Pre-Departure Session cum Inter-generation meetup

The Pre-Departure Session serves as a meetup for incoming students to Fudan in the new semester before they head over to Shanghai. Attendees include exchange students from National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore Management University (SMU), students from the NUS Overseas College Programme, incoming undergraduates as well as postgraduates. During the session, FUSSA members will answer queries from attendees, ranging from visa applications, accommodation to the know-hows in Shanghai. We will also blast useful contacts such as Overseas Singaporean Unit (OSU), Contact Singapore (CS), the Singapore embassy in Shanghai, as well as FUSSA's own WeChat subscription account and Facebook group so that incoming students are well aware of the help available when staying abroad. More importantly, the session serves as a platform for attendees to make friends with fellow Singaporeans as the very first community to help them settle down overseas. The Inter-Generation meetup is a dinner session where FUSSA alumni and existing FUSSA members come together to catch up on latest developments in both Shanghai and Singapore. With seniors all the way from the 2003 batch to juniors starting from the 2016 batch, the inter-gen meetup also serves as a platform for current FUSSA members to learn from their seniors' experiences so as to better hone their experiences overseas. FUSSA hopes to connect past and present FUSSA members through this very first inter-gen meetup.

August 2016 All Events

UKSLSS-R&T Law Orientation Night 2016

Unlike typical law career events, UKSLSS-R&T Law Orientation Night 2016 is the first ever event of the UKSLSS to provide a distinct social angle. There are two groups of people: 'Freshers' and 'Seniors'. The event consists of two parts. The first is an informal, open-air panel discussion involving university students from different years, trainee lawyers and lawyers, which focuses on helping Freshers understand what lies ahead from them as a law student or in private practice. The second part is a networking session where the Seniors come in to network informally with Freshers to chat with them and give them advice regarding law school and life in general. The second funding criterion is met due to the number of legal professionals around, particularly from our hosting firm R&T, that can provide valuable insight to Freshers and other students on the legal developments in Singapore and how to legal market will change. The third criterion is met because of the social bonds and friendships that are hopefully forged and strengthened at this event. All these will be done over some food and drinks, as well as the great view at the sky garden.
