Round 1 Recruitment Exercise Opens!

GEM Explorer AY 2021-22 Recruitment (Round 1).png

Please note that Vacancy List for GEM Explorer AY 2021/22 Sem 1 & Sem 2 Round 1 has been released via Student Resources.

6 December 2020 / 7 December 2020

Dear Students,

 

Greetings from OGEM! 

 

The current COVID-19 situation is impacting the facilitation of both inbound and outbound exchange programmes and under the pre-text that trip suspension must be lifted for physical exchange to proceed.   In view of the uncertainty, the number of exchange spots are reduced and OGEM needs to make some adjustments for AY21-22 Recruitment Exercise.  The change is intended to give a fair chance to senior year students to secure exchange spots to gain overseas experience, if possible.   Students who will be in final year in AY2021-22 should first check with their schools if they are permitted to apply for semester exchange in this upcoming GEM Explorer Recruitment Exercise.

 

We will implement the following Application Process and  Allocation Criteria due to the unique situation this year:

 

a. Round 1 will only be open to Year 2 and Year 3 students (who will be in Penultimate and Final Year students in AY2021-22), including Scholars from PSP and Nanyang Scholars. Allocation criteria such as GPA and Citizenship, etc., would be applied as per usual.  Year 1 students from ACC and BUS (3-year degree programme) may apply.   Year 1 students from 4-year degree programmes are not eligible to apply.   

Students who will be in Final Year in AY2021-22 and are not successful during Round 1 will be able to participate in our "Call-In Scheme 1".  This is a  one-on-one scheme for students to select remaining spots on a first-come-first-served basis. Offers will be given to students under this scheme and acceptance of these offers will be done on the spot.  Acceptance of Offers will be considered final.

 

b. Round 2 will open to all students for exchange.  Those who are unsuccessful in Round 1 and Year 1 students may apply.  Allocation Criteria such as GPA and Citizenship etc., will be applied as per usual.

 

c. Round 3 will be a closed round for students who were not successful in Round 2. Allocation criteria such as Citizenship, GPA, etc., will be implemented as per usual.

 

d. "Call-in Scheme 2" will be the final allocation scheme for students who are not successful during Round 3.  Call in Scheme is a one-on-one scheme for students to select remaining spots on a first-come-first-served basis, with guidance from OGEM on selecting the most fitting university that is still available.  Offers will be given to students under this scheme and acceptance of these offers will be done on the spot. Acceptance of Offers will be considered final.

 

We will send an email invitation to all eligible students accordingly.  Please note of the timeline:

 

  1. Round 1 Application: 8 December to 16 December 2020

     

  2. Call In Scheme 1: Final Year Students in AY2021-22:
