About the programme:

  • During the 5-week programme, students may take up to 2 courses from various disciplines such as Economics, South Asian Studies, Geography, Sociology, Malay Studies, Public Health and language studies.
  • Each course carries 4 modular credits awarded by NUS; which is the equivalent of a 3-credit hour course under the North American credit system or 6 ECTS under the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System.
  • There will be social events for student get-togethers and cultural exchange. Some courses include an overseas or local field trip.
  • Students will get to experience residential college living at the University Town.

Programme Fee:

  • There will be a number of exchange places available.
  • For non-exchange applications, the programme fee is approximately S$3,285 – S$4,093 (including application fee, tuition fee and miscellaneous fees). Students applying before 8 February 2018 will enjoy an early bird discount of SGD$100 off the application fees.
  • For eligible students, there are several New Colombo Plan Mobility travel grants available of $2000 each.
