NUS In-Person Commencement (1-24 Oct 2021)

Just 4 months ago, the graduating batches of 2020 and 2021 of NUS became the maiden cohorts in the first-ever virtual commencement. Recently, NUS has announced yet another round of in-person commencement for the same batch of graduates.

The NUS Commencement ceremony is a significant part of a graduate's life, and we have arranged a series of perks, in collaboration with our vendors, to make it an experience to remember! (All offers will end 31 Oct 2021)

All NUS Graduation Bears and Lions at 10% off

One of the greatest perks of having an in-person Commencement ceremony - you guessed it - would be the chance to mingle and take photos with graduating friends in the full glory of your gowns (subject to safe distancing regulations).

Not to be missed, is the appearance of the NUS Grad Bears and Lions. A staple since 2005, the NUS Grad Bears and Lions wear the exact same gowns and hoods as you, taking your matchy ceremonial outfit to the next level.

Now available at S$54 for Grad Bear (U.P. S$60)
Now available at S$45 for Grad Lion (U.P. S$50)

Academic plaques from House of Poroseal

For those who prefer a more traditional and everlasting gift, what's better than a sturdy plaque to immortalise this memory? If you’re looking for a place to customise an academic plaque, we recommend our partner House of Poroseal, which has a lifetime guarantee for all their plaques.

Their quality plaques are printed using a technology that permanently embeds into the pores of the aluminium which makes it impossible to peel. They are also free from discolouration and yellowing, making this a one-off investment will be one that will not fade away with time.
