Overseas Entrepreneurship Programme (OEP)

The OEP gives entrepreneurially‐inclined NTU students the opportunity for a 1‐year internship in a start‐up company in a vibrant entrepreneurial eco‐system and study at a partner university. It is a one‐year programme, consisting of 20 AUs which will be categorised under Core. These 20 AUs will consist of the 10 AUs for Professional Internship, and another 10 AUs from Unrestricted Electives. Successful OEP students will have their degree requirements adjusted to facilitate the credit transfer of 20 Core AUs for OEP. This is reflected in the table below.
