The NUS Student Exchange Programme (SEP) provides students with the opportunity to study in an overseas partner university, usually for a semester or two, with approval of the School, to further enhance their learning experience. Students from either partner university pay fees only at their home institution while on exchange. The new experience provided by SEP is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will enrich the life of the student forever.Some of the partner universities include Uppsala University, University of British Columbia, McGill University, University of California, University of Melbourne and University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

“ My four-month stay in University of North Carolina has been fun and fulfilling. I had the opportunity to take courses offered by Kenan-Flagler Business School and School of Information and Library Science, which are among the bests. Apart from academics, there were all kinds of activities throughout the semester. In addition, it was basketball season and we were all super excited about it. Lastly, UNC has one of the most gorgeous campuses in the world and looks stunning all year round. I would definitely pay another visit there when I am back in the US."

“...SEP is really once-in-life experience. I had the chance to study and live with foreign students and to know their culture. I was able to travel around and visited all the places I dreamt about. I will never forget the five months.
Thanks to NUS and SoC for giving me this opportunity.”
