About 
 
The National University of Singapore (NUS) has something to offer most students--English as a common language, a wide range of academic courses, the beauty of nature to enjoy, and an active social calendar. Each year, over 28,000 students from 80 different countries choose to study at the National University of Singapore. 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. 

Located off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is the fifth wealthiest country in the world. It is a dynamic island city-state where you will find a blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture. As English is the official language of this former British colony, Singapore provides the best of both the East and the West.

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 areas open to international students. Check the Module List, then look up any interesting classes in the Module Search page for more details. 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 lifeThis is a great way for students to quickly develop their social life and extra-curricular activities while in Singapore.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
Former Texas A&M Exchange Student
