During the winter vacation of 2021, 90 undergraduates from 11 schools within GMU participated, and successfully completed, in online academic programs taught by the National University of Singapore. The Guangzhou Medical University Nanshan Education Development Foundation offered full scholarships to 33 students. The School of Basic Medical Sciences tailor-made the specific course for students majoring in biomedical engineering.
There were five themed programs: business and finance, law and public policy, psychology and applied psychology, medical and life science (immune response in infection and cancer), as well as chemistry and biomaterial. Each program contained main courses, group discussions, online tutorials, and a final presentation. All programs were instructed by experts in their corresponding fields from the National University of Singapore.
