This innovative program brings together students mainly from the United States, Japan (Konan University), Hong Kong (Hong Kong Polytechnic University) and Singapore (UB-SIM Undergraduate Programs) to study together, thus enhancing the cross-cultural experience.
Students will stay in residence halls located in District 10, a peaceful and premier residential district in Singapore, easily accessible to the city center.
