Admissions Blog

About upbeat
upbeat is a blog produced by the Duke-NUS Student Recruitment & Admissions office, dedicated to bring you, the reader, stories from our students. We hope to engage, inspire and charm you with musings from our school.

How upbeat was conceptualized
The name upbeat was thought of by a couple of bright, talented first year Duke-NUS Medical students after an hour long session of brain-storming and doodling on the white board.
