Notice to All Undergraduate NSmen

Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) has advised that all undergraduate NSmen are liable to be called up for In-Camp Training (ICT). It has made a standing arrangement with the universities that undergraduate NSmen would be called up for In-Camp Training (ICT) only during specific parts of the university vacations. During these periods, the university will not conduct any compulsory academic programme. MINDEF will not grant deferment on the ground of academic commitments. The call-up periods are indicated in the table below:

Year of Study
ICT Call-Up Period and Duration
1st
10 Dec 12 – 6 Jan 13
10 Jun to 4 Aug 2013
2nd
24 Jun to 4 Aug 2013
3rd
24 Jun to 4 Aug 2013

4 weeks
6 weeks

Attachment programmes may overlap with the call-up period. NSmen students called up during their attachment can apply for leave and extend their attachment to make up for the period missed.
