Among the courses offered is “Southeast Asia in Context”, a five-week exploration of Southeast Asia’s cultural and historic diversity, hosted by the Department of Southeast Asian Studies at NUS in collaboration with the International Alliance of Research Universities Global Summer Program (IARU GSP).

Much of the learning in the “Southeast Asia in Context” programme takes place outside the classroom, in parks, archaeological sites, cities, villages, markets, and restaurants.

The highlight of the course is a 10-day fieldtrip to Myanmar or Indonesia, where students will be exposed to local cultures and will be engaged in on-site lectures by both the course instructors and local experts.

The deadline for applications is 15 March 2015.
