|Areas of study open to exchange students|
As NUS is dealing with capacity problems for their courses, students need to be highly flexible with their module choices and to prepare for some back-up modules in the event of oversubscription or timetable clashes.
Students interested or studying in Urban Studies and Environmental Studies are encouraged to apply for this exchange programme with NUS.
For all module restrictions, please look here.
|Courses at Master’s level|
Limited master level courses are available to incoming exchange students. In general, students should only select modules from the list of available modules. Allocation of module is subject to availability and meeting the pre-requisite of module.
|Language of instruction|
On-campus accommodation is available, expect to pay 1300-2000 EUR for a semester (meal plan included). Undergraduate students on coursework-based exchange are given priority for accommodation even though NUS cannot guarantee all exchange students on-campus accommodation. If your on-campus accommodation application is unsuccessful, or if NUS is unable to invite you to apply for accommodation at the time of issuing your acceptance letter, you are encouraged to explore off-campus accommodation options. The Office of Student Affairs has prepared the necessary information to assist in your search for off-campus accommodation.
