7 things to know about NUS
before you pack.

#1.
First things first (rankings).
Whether you think the numbers are important
or not, they make a great introduction. So –
1st in Asia. 11th in the world. But that’s far
from the only thing that sets us apart.
QS World University Rankings 2021

                                                    #2.
                                Majoring in what you
                               love is totally possible.
                           Going after your passion? Or trying
                              something new? 60 bachelor’s
                            degrees, 54 second majors and
                             30 major-minor options mean
                          there’s always something you want.

#3.
Grades don’t (always)
matter.
Like when you are still getting
used to university life. The
Grade-Free First Year scheme
gives you the license to figure out
what you like at your own pace.

                                                          university in the world, it’s
                                                       little wonder that our campus
                                                          is a cultural melting pot. But
                                                       there’s always room for more.

3 things

  off campus
• Finding cool places islandwide when there are
  no classes
• Exploring the rest of Southeast Asia over
  recess week

• Residential Colleges
• Student Residences

#3.
And a couple of practical stuff*.
Including:
• Something to remind you of home
• Power adaptors
• Short sleeves for beach weather (~30°C)

• Useful NUS apps for making your #NUSlife just that
  little bit better
