2.4.2    Student Exchange Programme

The Student Exchange Programme (SEP) provides an opportunity for students to study at more than 160 universities in 32 countries. These include premier institutions in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. SEP offers students exciting opportunities to get fresh perspectives on the subjects that they study, to experience foreign cultures and to forge friendships across borders. They gain maturity, confidence, independence and an ability to work with people of different cultures. Some students will also get a chance to develop new language skills that may serve them well in future careers.

Students are normally selected for SEP during Year 2 and embark on exchange for a semester during Year 3. Students design their own study plans by selecting modules offered by partner universities and mapping them to equivalent modules offered at NUS. The grades achieved while on SEP are not included in the CAP calculation.
