We do not have an age limit to apply to Duke-NUS. Prospective students should note that the MD programme is an extremely demanding and rigorous course that takes 4 years to complete. After graduating from Duke-NUS, further training is required if one is to be licensed to practice medicine. A minimum of 5-6 years post-MD can be expected to complete one’s residency training. It may help to seek the perspectives of matriculated students on this issue.
Duke-NUS is open to students from diverse academic backgrounds, and the choice of a degree should be based on your interests and goals. Among medical students, literature demonstrates little or no difference in performance given different academic backgrounds. Despite some evidence that science graduates may score slightly higher on certain assessments, this effect diminishes with time during medical school. Regardless of the choice of academic background, doing well on the MCAT is important to the success of your application, be it through a solid foundation in the sciences, or by rigorous and disciplined self-study.
Hello. I took student loans out years ago and then fell into default. Later I did consolidate the loans and tried to pay what I could. Since then, I have fallen into hard times and I cannot pay. I tried to get a forbearance and I was told we make too much money. We are are trying to save our home, pay back loans to friends and family and have nothing extra. I am now looking at 90,000 owed and 3,000 monthly payment. I am a teacher and have two teenage sons (junior and senior). I don’t know what to do and I wanted to know if there is any help out there. Thank you for your time.

Hello. I am a going to be a first generation college graduate in May. I major in music and study voice. I have tried many times in the past to find grants for school, but to no avail. While I am certain that the money exists, few people I know actually find and use this money. Are there any direct links to grant applications, or a more direct route to them?
I just need help in funding for my education. I attend college now but I’m not eligible for a pell grant, and I desperately need help because I can’t continue making student loans. It is putting me further and further in debt..

A thorough evaluation of all the factors that may entitle you to grant money often turns up some surprising possibilities, and the range of choices is usually directly proportional to the time and effort spent in research. College loans may seem like a quick and easy way to solve financial problems, but after years studying, you will be glad to walk away owing absolutely nothing.
I am 19 and the oldest out of my four brothers and sisters and my family will be struggling to pay for my Rutgers tuition in the fall of this year. Although I was accepted into good colleges my senior year of high school, I had to stay home for two years at a community college to ease the burdens of tuition costs for my family. Support at home was further needed when my mom went into surgery for her cancerous brain tumor and she was out of work for over a year. Rather than spending my time home being lazy and depending on others, I have been proactive in competitive fencing, volunteering at my local courthouse, clubs at school and graduating with honors with a 3.7 GPA. It is very difficult to find money for transfer students, but I would be grateful if any help were to come my way.

Wellesley College, Massachusetts uses a large proportion of the funds contributed by its alumni to help fund the studies of students they accept on merit, but also considering a wide number of other factors. Their Davis Scheme gives non traditional students a chance to attend college at bachelor or graduate level.
Duke-NUS is a graduate medical school, and candidates are required to have at least a Bachelor’s degree by the time of enrolment into medical school. Our students will graduate with a MD (Doctor of Medicine) degree. We do not accept students who already have an MBBS or an MD degree. Doctors with MBBS or MD degrees who wish to pursue a PhD may consider the Duke-NUS PhD programme in Integrated Biology and Medicine. Information on that programme is available .
Candidates with the option of enrolling into a highly academic graduate entry medical school in their home countries or elsewhere should have valid reasons for attending Duke-NUS and/or living in Singapore. Singapore has a limited number of positions in its medical schools, each of which is valued and intended to educate physicians who plan to serve the country. We are fortunate to have many such qualified international students, as exemplified by our diverse student body representing over 25 countries.
Examples of what is available to women are the Soroptomist International of the America’s Women’s Opportunity Awards, the Kalamazoo Women’s Education Coalition grant and the Raise the Nation Program, all offering financial help with non-specific studies.
