In line with the objective of exposing our students to different academic environments and varied cultures, NUS also seeks to send students to non-English speaking universities in Europe. Students returning from these universities will have developed broader intellectual and social perspectives and a greater appreciation of other systems and cultures.

The Double Degree Programme (DDP) with French Grandes Écoles provides students the opportunity to learn from the best of both worlds, immersion in a foreign culture, networking with future industry and government leaders of the host country (as well as Singapore), and proficiency in a third language. Annually, up to eight NUS students may be admitted to each partner university to experience the best of the French education system in Engineering and Science, when they study for two years at the Grandes Écoles.

Students will have the opportunity to study at the following partner French Grandes Écoles under the DDP:

  • Centrale Supélec (CS)
  • Ecole Polytechnique (X)
  • Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris  (Mines ParisTech)
  • Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées (ENSTA)
  • Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (Telecom ParisTech)
  • Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées (Ponts ParisTech)

The selection of students for the programme is based on their academic merit and personal qualities. Students will spend the first two years in NUS, followed by two years in their Grande École in France, before returning to NUS to complete their Master’s degree at NUS (see Table 3.5a).

Students will be conferred the Bachelor of Engineering degree with an appropriate class of honours after completing the first two years of undergraduate study in NUS and another two years of study in France. The Master of Engineering degree and the prestigious Diplôme d’Ingénieur will be conferred after completion of the graduate studies in NUS.
