Admission is based on academic merit as well as open competition among all eligible applicants. In addition to fulfilling admission requirements for the applicant category that you belong to, you should also ensure that you fulfil the subject prerequisites for the courses which you wish to be considered.

Please note that the subject prerequisites presented below are subject to changes every year. You are strongly encouraged to visit our website regularly for further updates.

Local polytechnic applicants (regardless of nationality) will be considered for admission if their Diplomas are relevant and accredited to the NUS course. However, there are certain undergraduate courses that are open to all applicants presenting a local polytechnic diploma.
