NTU-NUS PhD Student Exchange Programme

The NTU-NUS PhD Student Exchange Programme enables PhD students in the two universities to take the graduate level courses/modules that are not offered in their Home University from the other university (Host University), therefore utilize and leverage on the respective strengths of both universities and significantly broaden the students’ educational options. The Programme improves the quality of PhD education in both NTU and NUS, and is the first such collaboration in PhD education among Singaporean universities.


Students must seek written endorsement of their Home University to select and apply for Exchange Courses/Modules at the Host University. The student’s enrolment in the courses/modules is determined by the Host University based on the availability of spaces and the student’s academic credentials. Upon successful completion of the courses, credits will be transferred to the Home University.


The enrolled students are responsible for:

a. Tuition, academic and obligatory fees at their Home University. These fees will be waived at the Host University;

b. Medical/health insurance. This fee will be waived at the Host University if a student is already insured for similar coverage at the Home University;

c. Obligatory expenditure required in the Host University;

d. Personal and living expenses, including accommodation and food;

e. Debts incurred for the duration of their study at the Host University; and

f. Own travel expenses.


The use of non-academic or non-obligatory facilities, services and functions at the Host University may require the payment of fees by the exchange student.


Interested PhD students are encouraged to apply for this exchange programme. Detailed procedures to apply to this programme are provided through the following links.
