SINGAPORE UNIVERSITIES STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAMME (SUSEP)
A tripartite agreement has been reached with NUS and SMU to offer student exchange programme commencing July 2001. Through this programme, students at the 3 institutions are able to study and experience student's life at a host institution while pursuing their degrees in their university.
In NTU, SUSEP is administered by the Office of Academic Services and supported by the Schools.
The following options are available for students (NUS or SMU) participating in the programme:
- Partial Exchange
Take a few approved courses in NTU and the remaining in your home university. Students are to ensure that the courses and examination timetables for the NUS/SMU courses they wish to take will not clash with those that they are taking in NTU.
- Full Exchange
Do one semester of studies of approved courses entirely at NTU.
Matters on Registration of Courses
Students should ascertain with the advice of their institution's academic counsellor that they have met the equivalent pre-requisites, if any, of the NTU courses.
For students who are taking a few courses at NTU and the remaining in their own university, it is important for them to check and ascertain that they can fit the approved courses with their registered courses in their university. You may refer to more information on course registration, content of courses,examination timetable and class schedules to assist you in your choice of courses.
Please note that there are certain courses which are not offered to exchange students. NTU courses are highly competitive and popular, and there is no guarantee that you will be allocated courses you express interest in.
