Singapore Universities Student Exchange Programme (SUSEP - Inbound)

Young and research-intensive, NTU is placed 19th globally, and 1st among the world’s best young universities for five consecutive years (QS university rankings). SUSEP is a reciprocal arrangement between local partner universities which offers students the opportunity to participate in a semester-long exchange programme at NTU. Through SUSEP, students can take selected courses and experience student life at NTU, while pursuing their degrees in their home university.

Partner Universities
NTU is proud to partner with the following universities to offer the SUSEP programme:

National University of Singapore (NUS)
Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)
Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS)
Singapore Management University (SMU)


Full/Partial Exchange
The following options are available for students participating in the programme: 

  • Partial Exchange
    Take a few approved courses in NTU and the remaining in your home university. Students must cross-check the course and examination timetables of their home university and that of NTU to ensure that there are no schedule clashes.

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

Plan your courses
Use the resources below to construct your course plan.

  • Refer to  Content of Courses to view the courses offered in the past academic years.
    Updated course information for Semester 1 and 2 shall only be available towards May and November, respectively.
  • Check the Restricted Courses List. Some courses are not offered to exchange students.
  • Ensure that you meet the equivalent course prerequisites, if any.
  • Consult your academic advisor about your course selections and seek approval for your study plan. 

Important: Some courses, especially Business and Computer Science courses, are generally very popular but have limited vacancies. Course allocation is subject to approval and availability, and you are advised to have a flexible course plan in case the courses you apply for are not available.

NTU will not collect tuition and insurance fees from SUSEP students nominated by NTU's partner universities, since these are paid to their home universities. Students are required to pay NTU's Compulsory Miscellaneous Fees:
