Graduate Studies Admission Requirements

Admission Criteria

Applicants must possess an undergraduate degree or an equivalent qualification from a recognised institution.

For SUSS graduate programmes that are conducted in the English Language, you must meet the English Language Proficiency Requirement (ELPR)* if your undergraduate degree is not awarded by an English-medium university, or your undergraduate degree is awarded by an English-medium university but the language of instruction was not English.

* at least an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5, or a TOEFL score of 580 (paper-based) or 85 (internet-based), or a PTE Academic score of 58, or C1 Advanced score of 180 [score must be obtained within the last 2 years at point of application], or a MUET score of a Band 4 [score must be obtained within the last 5 years at point of application].

Applicants with an undergraduate degree that was conducted in English but awarded by a non-English medium university must produce an official letter from the university to certify as such in order to seek waiver of the ELPR requirement.

Additional admission requirements may be applicable to some programmes.

Shortlisted applicants may be required to undergo one or more interviews and/or take written admission or other evaluation tests as may be prescribed by SUSS from time to time.

All applications are considered individually on merit, and the offer of admission is dependent on the number of places available in individual programmes. Admission is solely at the discretion of SUSS and the decision is final and binding. SUSS reserves the right to refuse admission and is not obliged to offer an explanation for the non-admission of unsuccessful candidates.

Successful applicants who have been offered a place in our graduate programme from the July 2024 intake onwards will be required to make a non-refundable deposit of S$2,000 (inclusive of prevailing GST) upon acceptance of the Final Offer (FO) from SUSS. The deposit will be used to offset the course fees for the first semester’s billing. More details regarding course registration and course payment will be shared in the Acceptance of Offer (AOO) email which will be sent to new students by 15 June or 30 November for the July and January intakes respectively.
