Singapore Universities Student Exchange Programme (SUSEP)

A reciprocal agreement has been made with NUS, SMU, SUSS and SUTD to offer student exchange programme. Through this programme, students at the 5 institutions are able to study and experience student's life at a host institution while pursuing their degrees in their university.

In NTU, SUSEP is administered by the Office of Academic Services and supported by the Schools.

Options Available

The following options are available for students (NUS or SMU or SUSS or SUTD) participating in the programme: 

  • Partial Exchange
    Take a few approved courses in NTU and the remaining in your home university. Students are to ensure that the courses and examination timetables of their home university courses they wish to take will not clash with those that they are taking in NTU.

  • Full Exchange
    Do one semester of studies of approved courses entirely at NTU.

Students should ascertain with the advice of their institution's academic counsellor that they have met the equivalent pre-requisites, if any, of the NTU courses.

For students who are taking a few courses at NTU and the remaining in their own university, it is important for them to check and ascertain that they can fit the approved courses with their registered courses in their university.

Please note that there are certain courses which are not offered to exchange students.  NTU courses are highly competitive and popular, and there is no guarantee that you will be allocated courses you express interest in.

Tuition fees are paid to the home university (NUS or SMU or SUSS or SUTD) and are waived by NTU.

The financial responsibility of students participating in SUSEP is as follows:
  • Tuition, academic and obligatory fees at the home university. These fees will be waived at NTU;
  • Medical/health insurance;
  • Obligatory expenditure required in NTU;
  • Personal and living expenses, including accommodation and food; and
  • Debts incurred for the duration of their study at the host university.
