NIE Semester Exchange



NIE Semester Exchange is an excellent opportunity for Year 2 or 3 undergraduates from NIE partner universities who are aspiring to spend a semester or two in Singapore. At NIE, they will learn more about our education system and experience how we prepare teachers for different disciplines. The degree will still be conferred by their home university, but this stint will give them a chance to broaden their undergraduate experience.

Students from NIE partner universities who are interested in the NIE Semester Exchange, please check with your exchange coordinators for the application processes.
