For Visiting Students

Partnership Opportunities


Our Inbound and Exchange Programmes provide visiting students an opportunity to gain valuable cross-cultural learning experiences in Singapore. We welcome students from all over the world to experience an interesting and rewarding intercultural exchange.  

As a student in one of our partner universities, spend a semester at SUSS, Singapore’s 6th Autonomous University, a college with an emphasis on lifelong, learner-centric and industry relevant education.  

SUSS currently offers more than 700 undergraduate courses that are available in full- and part-time study modes. Visiting students from our partner universities can select from a wide range of courses from the ten (10) full-time undergraduate degree study programmes.  

Join us at SUSS for a flexible and multi-faced learning experience guided by experienced academic and industry practitioners, grounded in robust curricula and methodologies centered on developing well-rounded future leaders. 

SUSS partners selected universities to promote and facilitate the student semester exchange programmes each year. As an exchange student, you will be enrolled full-time at SUSS while you are on the programme.  

As part of these collaborative agreements between the two institutions, visiting students who are enrolled in one of SUSS’ partner universities pay tuition fees to their home institution and enjoy a waiver of tuition fees at SUSS.  

At the moment, SUSS does not offer fee-paying semester exchange programmes and the acceptance of visiting students is limited to individuals enrolled in our partner universities.
