Programmes for Visiting Students

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 region to experience an interesting and rewarding programme of study with us.


In line with SUSS’s  emphasis on cultivating the ‘Head’, ‘Heart’ and ‘Habit’, participants of our inbound programmes have enjoyed learning through a mixture of workshops, seminars, and guided explorations in different parts of our city-state.

Oftentimes guided by themes grounded in sustainable development and social innovation, you may expect an immersive learning experience that will provide you with an awareness about emerging signals of change against the backdrop of Singapore’s sociocultural and economic developments.

Sociovation is a portmanteau that blends “social” + “innovation” –  a programme designed to imbue in our participants an empathy-driven approach to innovations in various sectors.

Generously funded by Temasek Foundation International, the inaugural run in March 2019, saw 70 youths from ASEAN and Singapore explore 3 social themes of ageing, disability and environment sustainability. Learning through visits to community partners such as WOW Kampung, Dignity Kitchen and St Luke’s Eldercare and using design-thinking frameworks, participants then came up with innovative ideas that may be applied to the social, public, or private sector. 

Our next run in 2020 will have a unique focus on environmental sustainability via visual storytelling. We welcome applications from Southeast Asia and the greater China region.

Semester 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. With more than 70 undergraduates and graduate programmes, available in full and part-time study modes which are flexible, modular and multi-faceted in learning experience, the college caters to both fresh school leavers and adult learners.

Join us at SUSS for a learning experience guided by experienced academic and industry practioners, grounded in robust curricula and methodologies centred 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 are limited to individuals enrolled in our partner universities.
