Summary: The reductions of the multi-component nonlinear Schrödinger models related to C.I and D.III type symmetric spaces are studied. We pay special attention to the MNLS related to the \({\mathfrak{sp}}(4)\), \({\mathfrak{sp}}(10)\) and \({\mathfrak{so}}(12)\) Lie algebras. The MNLS related to \({\mathfrak{sp}}(4)\) is a three-component MNLS which finds applications to Bose-Einstein condensates. The MNLS related to \({\mathfrak{so}}(12)\) and \({\mathfrak{so}}(10)\) Lie algebras after convenient \(\mathbb{Z}_6\) or \(\mathbb{Z}_4\) reductions reduce to three and four-component MNLS showing new types of \(\chi^{(3)}\)-interactions that are integrable. We briefly explain how these new types of MNLS can be integrated by the inverse scattering method. The spectral properties of the Lax operators \(L\) and the corresponding recursion operator \(\Lambda\) are outlined. Applications to spinor model of Bose-Einstein condensates are discussed.
