The Office of the Vice President (University & Global Relations) leads the University in its strategic development to become a leading global university through impactful global programmes and strong relations and collaborations with diverse local and global stakeholders. It formulates and oversees the implementation of the University's global strategies as well as strategic communications within the University and beyond.
The International Relations Office (IRO) fosters partnerships with premier institutions around the world to enhance NUS’ standing as a world-class institution. In tandem with NUS’ vision of becoming a leading global university centred in Asia, IRO (established in 1996) has developed meaningful international engagements with many peer institutions and fostered interactions and collaborations in education, research and technology that benefit our students, staff and other stakeholders. Besides the Student Exchange Programme (SEP), IRO also works with NUS faculties and schools on other overseas attachments including international summer programmes (i-SP), international internships (i-Intern) and international research attachment programmes (i-RAP).
