Full-time Programme Application Process


Important Notes

  • A non-refundable application fee of S$15 (Singapore Citizens, Singapore Permanent Residents) and S$30 (International Students), inclusive of prevailing GST, is charged for each application. Each applicant should submit only one application form.

  • All applications must be accompanied by copies of supporting documents.

  • Applicants may select up to four choices of their preferred programmes during application. The four choices are ranked from first to fourth choice, and applicants are shortlisted and invited for interviews based on their choices. If you do not meet the shortlisting criteria for your first programme choice, you will be considered for your second choice, and so on.

    In addition, applicants who have interest in the Early Childhood Education, Psychology and/or Social Work programmes should note the following:
    • For Early Childhood Education, Psychology and Social Work programmes – besides meeting the course requirements, applicants are required to rank these programmes within the first and second choice to be considered for shortlisting for interview.

  • Once an application is submitted, the programme choices and ranking are deemed as final. No further changes may be made.
  • The three-stage selection process for SUSS full-time programmes - comprising a response essay, an online cognitive test and a programme-specific interview or assessment centre - will be done on the spot within the same day. International students may have the option of attending the selection process virtually. Applicants will receive more information on the selection process when they have been shortlisted for interview.

  • On Selection Day, all original and photocopies of educational certificates, result transcripts and other supporting documents must be presented to SUSS for verification. All non-English international qualifications should be translated into English with Notarial Certification.
