All students must undergo health screening prior to admission to determine their medical fitness to pursue the programme of study in the University. Health screening is conducted at the campus clinic - Fullerton Healthcare @ NTU, University Health Service (UHS) Building.
During this period of the health screening, X-ray services are available on site. Female students are advised to come wearing a plain T-shirt (one-color only) with no buttons, logo, emblem or pattern of any kind. This allows the X-ray to be taken without any change of clothes. Otherwise, you may have to purchase and change into a disposable gown for the X-ray examination.
Female students who are expecting their menstrual period to coincide with the health screening, please arrange for a date that is at least one week after the last day of your period. This is to avoid having to come back a second time to complete the urine test, as an ongoing or recent period will interfere with the results of the urine test.
Please note that health screening fee(s) will be borne by the students. Do allow 5 working days before matriculation for your health screening to be processed.
