Just as a complement to my previous post on how this works,
- When you apply, you specify a campus (Singapore or Fonty) of choice. It's not guaranteed though in majority of cases you get your first preference.
- You do the first 2 periods (i.e P1 and P2) in the starting campus
- A lot of people switch campus in p3 for 1 period, and return to their original campus in P4
- Those who are interested in recruitment in a certain region will be in that region campus for P4 and P5. Typically many travel from Singapore to Fonty for P4 and P5. Some from Fonty go to Singapore in P4/5 for recruitment targeted to Asia.
- Once recruitment is over in P4 (in most cases), many from Singapore travel to Fonty for P5 so they can graduate with the rest of the class.
- Graduation ceremonies are held in both campuses - the Fonty ceremony is obviously much bigger. Many travel from Singapore to Fonty just for graduation as well (it is allowed and possible)
Other sample patterns are
P1, 2 - Singapore, P3 - Fonty, P4,5 Singapore
P1, 2 - Singapore, P3 - Fonty, P4 - Wharton, P5 - Fonty
How you mix it depends on how adventurous you are. But it all works seamlessly and it's surprisingly flexible. You decide which campus you want to be in, when in P2. But it can be changed.
This year, the rush to come to Singapore in P3 from Fonty was so high they had to put a wait list. Typically everyone who wants to go to Fontainebleau from Singapore gets to go (large campus, more capacity).
So, that's that about the dual campus structure. And here are a couple of pics of the beautiful river side walk near my house...its fantastic when the weather is good. Can't do this in Singapore.
