Program Description:

Nanyang Technological University

NTU2     NTU1     NTU3
Singapore is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city-state that is centrally located in Asia between Malaysia and Indonesia. It consists of one main island surrounded by 63 islets. Singapore is a very globalized country and prides itself on being a very clean, green and safe city. As a hub for commerce and industry, it is the busiest port in the world and one of the leading financial centers in Asia. Although Malay is the national language, Singapore has adopted English as the language of business and administration and it is the medium of instruction in schools and universities. Most Singaporeans are able to speak English in addition to Mandarin, Malay or Tamil.

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is a research-intensive institution with particular strengths in science and engineering. NTU also has a highly acclaimed business school with AACSB accreditation. The College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences is home to the Wee Kim School of Communication and Information, one of the top journalism and media schools in Asia. Nearly 30,000 students study at NTU and approximately 500 exchange students from 30 countries study at NTU each year. The main campus, known as the Yunnan Garden campus, occupies a beautiful site in the southwestern part of Singapore. This campus has Singapore’s largest housing infrastructure with 16 halls of residence for undergraduate students.

Students from UB can take courses in the College of Science, the College of Engineering, the Business School, and the College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences. Courses are subject to availability and completion of prerequisites. All NTU courses are taught in English. Available disciplines include:
• Art, Design & Media
• Biological Sciences
• Business Administration (AACSB accredited)
• Chemistry
• Communication Studies
• Economics
• Engineering
• Mathematics
• Physics
• Psychology
• Sociology

Students are required to take 15-20 NTU credits per semester (usually 4-5 courses) in order to earn full UB credit. Courses can count for major, minor and general education credit with approval from your department. Please also review the list of restricted courses.

The International Office at NTU will assist exchange students with coordinating accommodations.  Due to limited availability, on-campus housing is not guaranteed.  For exchange students who obtain on-campus housing, they will be accommodated in a double room in one of the 18 residence halls on the Yunnan Garden campus. All halls are co-ed by wing or floor and most have shared bathrooms and shower rooms. Rooms are furnished and have phone jacks and Internet connections. All halls have communal facilities such as television rooms, reading rooms, kitchenettes and laundry rooms. Students will be provided with housing application instructions upon acceptance to NTU. For more information, please visit the housing options website.
