A leading global university ranked as Asia’s top university by Quaquarelli Symonds University Rankings in 2015, the National University of Singapore is Singapore’s flagship higher education institution. We offer a global approach to education and research, with a focus on Asian perspectives and expertise. Among our many illustrious alumni are five Singapore Presidents and Prime Ministers.
Our 17 schools across three campuses provide students with multiple academic pathways and a broad-based curriculum underscored by multi-disciplinary courses and cross-faculty enrichment to best suit their interests and strengths. We allow our students to realise their academic potential by offering a wide range of undergraduate courses, including minors, double majors, double degrees and concurrent bachelor-master degrees. Our students are also given the flexibility to chart their own academic journey from a wide range of modules to delve into multiple knowledge domains in tandem.
Our transformative education and special programmes enable our students to gain that NUS experience. Our undergraduates are given opportunities to partake in special programmes such as the University Scholars Programme, University Town College Programme, Ridge View Residential College Programme, Student Exchange Programme and entrepreneurial internships at NUS Overseas Colleges.
