SUSS forges partnerships with selected universities to promote and facilitate the student semester exchange programmes each year. Through the development of strategic partnerships with selected universities, the Office of Global Programmes strives to maintain and sustain quality exchange programmes to provide students with rich opportunities for personal growth and development in the context of a different educational, social, and cultural setting. Students can immerse themselves for a semester in one of SUSS partner universities, both local and overseas, for an enriching learning experience.

As an SUSS exchange student, you will be enrolled full-time in one of SUSS’ local, or overseas partner universities. As part of the collaborative agreements, SUSS students enrolled in our partner universities continue to pay tuition fees to SUSS and enjoy a waiver of tuition fees at the host institution.

In addition, students get to earn and clear credit units while studying in another institution. SUSS welcomes applications from students who perform well in academics and exhibit exciting potential to be good ambassadors for SUSS. 

SUSS offers two kinds of Outbound Student Semester Exchange programmes: 

1) Local Student Semester Exchange (SEP)

Singapore Universities Student Exchange Programme (SUSEP)

SUSEP is the local version of SEP which allows students to experience a different academic life in another local university for 1 semester. Students who do not wish or do not have the financial capacity to go abroad for an entire semester may apply for the SUSEP in SUSS’ local partner universities with the Office of Global Programmes. 

Our Partner Universities

SUSS is proud to partner the following universities to offer the SUSEP programme: 


Student quota for the academic year 

National University of Singapore (NUS) 

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) 

Singapore Management University (SMU) 

Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) 

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)

2) Overseas Student Semester Exchange (SEP)

The Overseas SEP allows students to spend a full semester abroad to widen their horizons, gain and hone important soft skills in preparation for a world beyond the academic environment after graduation. 

The opportunity to live and study in another country for an entire semester allows students to gain experiences of immense value to future employers. Non-academic skill sets like other life skills students may acquire during the SEP period abroad make the SEP more rewarding. 

Interested students may apply when the application period commences. Outbound SUSS Students must be nominated by the Office of Global Programmes to study at a SUSS’ partner university. Furthermore, SUSS students must remain enrolled in SUSS and the selected host university for the full duration of the SEP. SUSS students continue to pay course fees to SUSS, while all course-related fees are waived. Students are responsible for their own expenses which include airfare, accommodation, food, transport, SUSS travel insurance etc. 

Benefits of the Overseas SEP:

  1. The overseas SEP is endorsed for GL-graduation requirement.  

  2. Experience new cultures/practices, see novel places and learn the basics of the mother tongue language of another country that you might have only read about.  

  3. Gain fresh perspectives of the courses you are intending to take, for you will have the opportunities to learn alongside students from international institutes around the world. 

  4. Immerse in the host country and learn the colloquial language from the people on the streets. The opportunity to learn phrases and expressions of daily use from the locals will be nonetheless valuable.  

  5. Make lifelong friends on an international scale.

Many overseas universities offer courses open to international students during their vacation period in the summer or winter seasons. OSS/OWS programmes are diverse courses offering rich learning opportunitiesat various destinations. 
Students may earn credits towards their degree programme and are strongly encouraged to apply for courses that add professional value to their academic achievements, and to pursue the experience with an open mind as they interact and engage with other international students. 
OSS programmes usually take place from June to August, while OWS programmes take place from December to January. Different programmes have different start and end dates depending on the host university and may be offered in-person or virtually. These programmes are shorter in duration than Semester Exchange Programmes, and do not disrupt the academic term as it takes place during school vacation periods.
While on their respective OSS/OWS programs, students are responsible for their own expenses, which include programme fees, SUSS travel insurance, airfare, accommodation, food, and transportation.
