Academic Focus:
This is a direct enrollment program that is open to all majors and pre-health and science majors are encouraged to apply. There are many science courses to choose from, however, students cannot take pre-law and/or business or Chinese language courses on this program. 

Due to demand and space constraints, some academic programs and modules have limited or restricted access for exchange students. The list of limited or restricted modules can be found at this link.  

Please note that modules from NUS Business School, Faculty of Law and Department of Economics are extremely popular, over-subscribed and cannot be guaranteed. NUS recommends students to apply who do not require business or economics courses and who are flexible with the courses they take while at NUS.

PLEASE NOTE: For a list of blanket approved course please see the Blanket Approval List. In case you would like to seek approval from other departments, please see the Faculty Representative List.

Living Arrangements:
Students mostly live in university residents, with a possibility of living on nearby hostels. The single rooms are grouped into clusters of 15 and offer its residents an apartment lifestyle. The 15 residents in each cluster are entrusted with collective responsibility for their shared facilities. Each cluster has its own kitchen, dining area, and bathroom facilities. The cluster lifestyle exposes students to independent living and also offers excellent opportunities for close interaction.

Students must indicate in the online exchange application if they require housing during their stay in Singapore. Only students who have ticked ‘yes’ to housing on their online exchange application will receive instructions on housing registration procedures via email if their SEP application is successful. 

Resources:  Application and Additional Hostel Options

NOTE: Due to limited housing on campus, Non-Graduating Students are not guaranteed accommodation on campus, NUS is not able to guarantee rooms because demand may exceed supply, but will try to place Emory students on priority. Residential Services can assist in finding an off-campus accommodation in the event that a student is not successfully allocated an on-campus accommodation.
