National University of Singapore

Program Terms:

Fall Semester, Spring Semester, & Academic Year


The National University of Singapore (NUS) offers a global and Asian experience that is broad, deep, and rigorous. NUS education is recognized as among the best in Asia and the world. Whichever undergraduate or graduate program you choose, your experience will be intellectually fulfilling in and outside the classroom.

NUS has several campuses: Kent Ridge Campus (main), Bukit Timah Campus, Outram Campus, and UTown. Exchange students take classes at the Kent Ridge Campus. NUS offers 17 faculties and schools with over 2000 modules per semester. (Source: National University of Singapore) 

Academic Details:

English is the main language of instruction in NUS. Students must be proficient in the English language in order to benefit from their studies at NUS.

Exchange students are required to read a minimum of 12 modular credits (MCs) per semester (approximately 3 modules) and no more than 20 MCs (approximately 5 modules), regardless of whether these modules are set to audit or exam-based. Students are encouraged to take modules for sufficient number of credits (not in excess), as required by their home university. All students will be pre-registered for at least 12 modular credits (MCs) per semester for the purpose of the Student’s Pass application. Students can add more modules or make changes to their pre-registered modules when they officially register at NUS. (Source: National University of Singapore Fact Sheet 2018)

Housing Details:

Exchange students may apply online for NUS Accommodation Options. However, due to shortage of on-campus accommodation at NUS, exchange students are not guaranteed on-campus accommodation. With increasing numbers of incoming exchange students, it is very likely that some students will need to source and secure their own private and off-campus accommodation. (Source: National University of Singapore Fact Sheet 2018)
