These special degree programmes with premier overseas universities provide our able students with further academic challenges and the opportunities to learn alongside other brilliant students in cross-cultural settings.
Besides Double Degree and Concurrent Degree programmes, Joint Degree programmes (JDPs) are also available. A JDP combines the strengths of both NUS and our partner university's curricula and integrate international experience fully into a student's course of study. Students will be jointly taught and assessed and jointly awarded a degree. The degree scroll bearing the crests and official signatories of both universities will be a doubly validated qualification. Students will be able to complete a JDP with Honours within four years if they follow the study plan.
The various Double/Concurrent/Joint Degree programmes with overseas universities are as follows:
DDPs with premier French Grandes Ecoles
DDP with Sciences Po
DDP with Waseda University
Concurrent Double Masters Degree Programme with the Global alliance in Management Education (CEMS)
