The copyright in an image in the NUS dissertation may not be owned or licensed by NUS. NUS has therefore no right to grant permission.
This is because copyright in the text of the dissertation is separate from the copyright in the images themselves.
Ownership of the manuscript / literary work is separate from ownership of the image / artistic work. For example this page from an academic article:
SIONG, Y. O. (2005). Y chromosome diversity in Singaporean Han Chinese population subgroups (Doctoral dissertation), page 79.
First ascertain who owns the copyright in the image, before seeking the permission of the copyright owner to use the image.
