WING Meeting KAN Min-Yen 28 Dec 2012
Min-Yen Kan Printing Banner pages are not counted against your quota Printing double sided incurs only 75% of your printing quota E.g. 12 single sided pages printed double sided incurs 8 pages of your quota There is no command line option or printer queue that does not invoke the banner. –We can disable banner sheets for research printers if everyone in a lab unanimously agrees to it. –https://docs.comp.nus.edu.sg/node/1497https://docs.comp.nus.edu.sg/node/1497
Min-Yen Kan RA/RS Arrangements Scholarships from NExT / CSIDM (Centres) are actually drawn from the general pool for PhD funding This means when your 4 years are up, you no longer have scholarship Often you can get 6 months’ of tuition waiver Also converting to support via RA/TA or p/t RA/TA incurs give you salary (~3K per month) –But then you have to pay the tuition fees (~2K per term?) –As staff you can apply for tuition fee reduction. But you may not get it as it nominally applies to staff working 1 year or longer
Min-Yen Kan Internships Internships of 3-6 months usually don’t stop your RS (stipend), unless you apply to have it stopped. Internships do count against your maximum candidature of 5 years. –You can apply to extend your maximum candidature for one semester but beyond that is difficult –School is under pressure to have you graduate too
Min-Yen Kan Conclusion When you’re an early RS, save up your money to hold against your fifth year. When you’re interning, try to negotiate some stipend, and think about whether you want to have your stipend stopped.
