Yale-NUS College welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. We seek the best and brightest students who will take advantage of the unique opportunity to experience a residential liberal arts education in Singapore.

Yale-NUS gives its students access to a remarkable and affordable education, comprised of numerous opportunities for global study and internships, culminating in exceptional value for our students when compared to leading colleges abroad.

Yale-NUS also offers a strong financial aid programme to its students. Merit-based scholarships are given out to recognize the exceptional qualities of students in the College. Need-based study awards are also given out to ensure that Yale-NUS will always be accessible to talented students regardless of their financial situations.

Similar to Yale University and NUS, Yale-NUS College is committed to a need-blind admissions policy. The ability of a student to pay for his/her education at Yale-NUS will not affect his/her admissions decision.

Over and above the fees that are paid by students or supported with scholarships, the Ministry of Education provides a subsidy to the College for every Singaporean student that covers a portion of the full cost of education. International students and permanent residents of Singapore are also eligible for this subsidy if they agree to take up employment in Singapore, or with a Singapore-based company overseas, for three years after graduation. Those international students and permanent residents who do not wish to take up this government subsidy and work in Singapore, or with a Singapore-registered company, after graduation will have the option of paying a supplementary fee in cash or covering the fee through access to a reasonable loan programme offered by the College.
