Studying at NUS not only offers students a diverse cultural experience, but also a quality educational experience. Standing as the foremost and most prestigious university in Singapore and ranked consistently among the top 50 universities in the world, NUS strives to be a powerhouse of technology and innovation that creates new knowledge, ideas and breakthroughs.

Courses

One of the benefits of participating in an exchange program is that students can enroll in any course at the host university. As a result, NUS offers courses in a wide variety of areaopen to international students. As the university is based in a country whose official language is English, students have the full curriculum available to them not counting professional school programs in the NUS Non-Graduating Program. Due to this large selection of course offerings, this exchange program will satisfy the academic needs, including research, of almost any Texas A&M student. Upon completion of the program, students will earn a minimum of 12 hours of A&M credit for each semester completed. NUS is on a semester system where courses are called modules.
 
Housing

Exchange students live in NUS housing and have several options available to them, although most choose to reside in Prince George's Park Residences (PGPR), a student residence. NUS has two classifications of student housing--Halls of Residence and Student Residences. Halls of Residence are similar to Texas A&M residence halls and Student Residences are similar to Texas A&M's University Apartments. While the amenities will depend on the residential facility, at PGPR students have:
  • Individual rooms
  • Shared common kitchen
  • Dining area
  • Connects for internet and television in every room
  • Lecture theatre
  • Seminar rooms
  • Multi-purpose hall
  • Gymnasium
  • Basketball and tennis courts
  • Jogging track
  • Exercise station
  • Mini-supermarket
  • Four food outlets
At NUS, the residential facilities maintain a lively rivalry against one another. As such, exchange students are encouraged to participate in activities organized by university clubs and societies of their choosing to help earn points for their respective residence as well as participate in campus life. This is a great way for students to quickly develop their social life and extra-curricular activities while in Singapore.

Costs

One of the benefits of participating in a reciprocal exchange is the affordability. Overall costs are comparable to studying in College Station with the main difference in costs coming from travel related expenses and the exchange rate. Please keep in mind that because you are enrolled at A&M, your regular tuition and fees will be paid at A&M just as if you were taking classes on campus. Additionally, students will be provided with the necessary information for them to make arrangements for all other expenses.
