If you are a current graduate student in a recognised university, you may apply to be a Non-graduating Student (NGS) (Research) or Non-graduating Student (Coursework) at the National Institute of Education (NIE).
NGS may take any of our Master’s courses while not enrolled in our Master’s programmes. You must satisfy the minimum criteria for entry into the programme. However, being allowed to take a course or courses and passing them does not guarantee entry into the programme. This will still be on a competitive basis.
In addition, NGS (Research) is to seek approval from an NIE academic staff who has agreed to be your supervisor during your proposed period of stay at NIE. The duration of each research attachment period shall be no more than 1 semester (or 6 months).
