International Students

International students have numerous opportunities to participate in campus life, including Clubs and Societies, Community Engagement, Sports and Residential Education

In addition to these opportunities, the Inclusion & Integration (I&I) team curates a range of meaningful activities for students to expand their social network and community of friends, as well as learn about university life and Singapore.
