Its 16 faculties and schools across three campus locations in Singapore - Kent Ridge, Bukit Timah and Outram provides a broad-based curriculum underscored by multidisciplinary courses and cross - faculty enrichment. NUS' transformative education includes programmes such as student exchange, entrepreneurial internships at NUS Overseas Colleges, and double degree and joint degree programmes with some of the world's top universities, offering students opportunities and challenges to realise their potential. The learning experience is complemented by a vibrant residential life with avenues for artistic, cultural and sporting pursuits.
