National University of Singapore


A leading global university centred in Asia, the National University of Singapore (NUS) was founded in 1905 as a modest medical college with 23 students. Today, Singapore's flagship university spans three campuses in Kent Ridge, Bukit Timah and Outram, and it is widely seen as among the best universities in Asia and the world. NUS offers a distinctively Asian and global experience and it is grounded in maximising the potential of students and their future-readiness, and broad-based research excellence that enables beneficial translation. Renowned for pioneering new models of education, the University is also highly regarded for the hallmark rigour and breadth of its academic programmes, innovative entrepreneurship education, and experiential learning. NUS aims to change the way people think and do things.
