  5. Changes on Zoom licenses for students

    Dear Students,

    We have changed how Zoom licenses are allocated in NUS. Students without teaching duties are no longer entitled to a licensed account as we have a limited number of licensed accounts. Students will be allocated basic accounts and can still schedule Zoom sessions for up to 40 minutes.

    If you are a student Teaching Assistant or need a Zoom licensed account to conduct certain events, let us know the module code / module coordinator and special event  here.

    Other alternatives: 

    ·       Microsoft Teams

    ·       Skype for Business Online Edition

    ·       Zoom Basic Plan has no time limit for 1-to-1 calls. Group calls has a 40mins time limit.

    Best Regards
    NUS Zoom Team
