    @Leon The duration of bond is pegged to the type of scholarship you are on, i.e. if you study at NTU and you are on SgIS Full-term, your bond will be 4 years, and if you are on SgIS Mid-Term Local, your bond will be 2 years long. Thank you.

    Hi. May I know if the duration of bond is pegged to the number of years of study. For e.g. if I take only 3 years to get complete a degree from ntu, do i still need to serve 4 years or just 3 years? Thanks!

    Hi SgIS, are you able to advise on the value of "maintenance and other allowances" and "overseas exchange sponsorship"? I have tried searching this on the internet but did not manage to find the exact value stated except for the Mid Term Scholarship.
