4. Where do we travel to and is the travel compulsory?

The country or destination for travel depends on the country where the project firm is based in. Travel for either the mid-point or final review is a great way for the consultants to get a chance to meet the clients personally, it is encouraged but not compulsory. You may like to take note that more information on the site visit is to be advised before commencement or during the programme.

For the Spring Cycle 2016, an immersion trip to South Korea (16 - 20 May 2016) will be organised for the consultants.

9. Will I be paid for my consulting work?

This is a programme organised by a student-based organisation, and the objective is not to generate a profit from the clients. All fees, if any, are solely used to subsidise travel-related expenses for the mid-point or final review.

10. Is there any penalty if I am unable to keep up with the timeframe?

You must be prepared to work with a global team for a period of 5 months, and understand that you need to be able to put in about 10 hours per week if you participate in this programme. Dropping off halfway through the programme will seriously affect your team members and deprive others of the chance to participate in this programme. As a representative of NTU and Singapore, we expect selected students to be committed and follow through the entire programme.
