New Faculty Members Relocating to Singapore

On Arrival

  • The following is a general outline of the process you will undergo when you arrive in Singapore:


    Arrival in Singapore

    Take a taxi from the Singapore Changi Airport to NTU

    Check into NTU transit accommodation

    Report to the NIE Human Resource Department for a brief orientation and to settle administrative matters (date of assumption of duty)

    Accompanied by buddy to report to the Academic Group or Department

    Orientation in the Academic Group or Department

  • The map of the University is available here. You may take a cab from the Changi International Airport to the University, and claim for reimbursement of the cab fare by obtaining a receipt from the cab driver.

  • Upon your arrival, you will be provided transit accommodation of up to 3 nights, usually at the Nanyang Executive Centre on campus. If your application for long-term accommodation on-campus is successful, arrangements will be made for you to view available units during this time.

  • Upon your arrival in Singapore, please make your way to the designated transit accommodation. After you have rested, you will report to the NIE Human Resource Department (HRD) to settle the administrative matters.

    When reporting to HRD, please bring along the following items:

    • your original University degree scrolls and academic records;
    • original cards or records as proof of professional membership or qualifications, if any;
    • your and your family's passports (if applicable), the disembarkation cards; and
    • the unused portion of the airline tickets.

    We will also guide you on how to seek reimbursement for your air tickets, expenses for the pre-employment medical examination and transportation of personal effects (if you are using your own mover).

    Thereafter, a "buddy", usually a colleague assisting in your orientation, will accompany you to the Academic Group for further induction.

    Detailed instructions regarding the above will be provided to you nearer the date of your arrival in Singapore.

  • A University Staff Card will be issued to you when you assume duty.

  • You will be given a computer network account with username and password for you to access the Internet, electronic mailing services and NIE portal.

  • You will be given an orientation package when you report at the NIE HRD. The package contains information useful for your work/stay in the University.
