Frequently Asked Questions

There’s no need to sign up for the overseas interview. As long as you have submitted an application, the University will review it and determine if an interview is needed. To be considered for our interview in Indonesia, students are strongly encouraged to submit the application by our Early Round deadline (15 November 2019). Students interested in our Malaysia and Taiwan interviews may submit application any time before our Main Round deadline (6 January 2020).

Interview invitations will be sent to shortlisted students by email during the week leading up to the event.

The interview will be in group format where 3-6 students will sit together and have a face-to-face discussion with our faculty staff. The interview will be conducted in English and will last for about 30 minutes per session. Students and their parents are recommended to join the 30-minute academic advising session following the interview to learn more about the University and the program details from our University representatives.

If you cannot attend the interview, please notify us by email as soon as possible so that we can try to rearrange another time-slot for you. Since our admission offers are issued on a rolling basis, we cannot guarantee alternative arrangement can be made to students who miss their interview.

Smart casual is acceptable. Also remember to wear a smile and stay comfortable.

If you have any further questions about the interviews, please do not hesitate to contact us.
