Yep, the LL.B (Hons) course at The University of Nottingham. God, I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!!!

Knogle, what are your rates? I have been shopping around for a new spokesman...

(Just realised you could have seen it in my sig though...)
Hmmm. I just realised that I can't see any sigs at all, even though I selected the "show signatures" option. How odd. (See, this makes it look like I unknowingly asked a redundant question. :p:)

You sure you don't have Sig-a-tron switched on? That compresses all signatures into a spoiler so you'd need to expand the spoiler to see the signature.

Even if you have signatures enabled, they will only show up once per thread PAGE. This means that only the first post of an individual on a particular page will have the user's signature - all other posts will be displayed without any signature. It's to save TSR on some resources, and also save us from users with ditzy, complex, and neon signatures that are a pain to see.

I don't have sig-a-tron switched on either. Hmmm. Still can't see any sigs at all. Ah well. At least it prevents me from getting epileptic fits from the aforementioned 'ditzy, complex and neon signatures'.

Congrats. :congrats: I wake up at 6am everyday, and others probably earlier! :p:

Booooooo the school holidays are over. Now it takes longer to get to camp.

NUS, UC Berkeley set up Risk Management Institute
By Amanda Mun, Channel NewsAsia



SINGAPORE : The National University of Singapore (NUS) and the University of California, Berkeley have entered into a partnership to set up a Risk Management Institute (RIM).

To start in August, it will focus on financial, economic and risk management issues relevant to the Asian market.

Besides offering Certification Programmes and Masters in Financial Engineering, there are also plans for a PhD programme in Quantitative Finance and Risk Management.

The institute, located at NUS, will organise annual workshops, conferences and forums that will bring globally prominent speakers on contemporary issues and financial economics and risk management.

It will also work closely with the financial industry to attract and train finance professionals, and to generate multi-disciplinary research programmes.

The new institute hopes to advance risk management to spur the development of new financial markets in Singapore and the region.

- CNA /ls
Wow, this must be making lots of people excited.

Ideal for investment bankers in Asia offices.

But the danger is it really limits your options. Or is it only for masters?

Masters only I think. I wonder how prestigious this course will turn out to be. Doesn't look bad at all though.. definitely an option.

Hmmm been a while since someone last posted huh! What've you all been up to?

For all the SAF personnel out there, check out the latest Manpower Directive released on 23rd June 2006 on disruption of NSFs. Servicemen who enlisted in March/April are now eligible for disruption in February (~1-2 months before their actual ORD date) if they're going to study at an Australian university. :cool: Based on the principlie of equity and all that, of course. No change for us UK-bound people though - we'll have to wait.

Well, it's only fair.... It's not like they chose to enlist later, anyway. AND they'd still have to return to serve their remaining time.

There's too much ns talk going on here.

Watching the match at 3am (sighhhh portugallll) and then having to wake up at 6am to be in school by 730 is NOT an experience i'm going to want to repeat any time. And then there's the small detail of my having to finish marking about 80 gp essay scripts by monday. 2 coffees in a space of 3 hours is a bad habit to pick up I say :p:
