No. Before the internship officially starts, contact between students, mentors and organizations is strictly prohibited. NTU OIA acts as the bridge between students and the host organizations before the internship starts. This is to ensure all students have a fair opportunity throughout the application process. If students are found to have initiated contact with any members of the organization, NTU OIA has the right to withdraw the students' application from the entire program.
If you want feedback on why your candidacy did not follow through, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We encourage students to continue applying for the NTU IMP in the upcoming years.
