    Dear SgIS, I would like to check whether the SgIS Full Term Scholarship covers the entire 4 years studies tuition fees (inclusive of the overseas graduate studies) if I am under the Global Engineering Programme (GEP) offered by NUS? Under the GEP, Students are exempted from reading certain specific modules through advanced placement credits. They can pursue self-study modules so that they can complete their B Eng within three years and go on to postgraduate studies in the 4th year at a top partner overseas university.
