If you want to study in Singapore, two universities in particular are bound to be at the top of your list. National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) are both consistently ranked among the global top 15 in the QS World University Rankings®, and are typically extremely close together in the table. \r\n\r\nThis year, NUS is the highest ranked Singaporean university, by one place. NUS ranks in 11th to NTU’s 12th. With not too much difference between the two academically, it’s worth digging a little deeper when comparing these two universities. \r\n\r\n\r\n\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t \r\n\t\t\t \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\tNational University of Singapore (NUS) \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\tNanyang Technological University (NTU) \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\tQS World University Rankings® 2022 \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRanked 11th in the world overall in 2022 \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRanked 12th in the world by academics and 26th by employers \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t99th for student/ faculty ratio \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t50th for citations per faculty \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t29th for international faculty ratio and 194th for international student ratio \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRanked 12th in the world \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRated 39th in the world by academics and 62nd by employers \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t91st for faculty/student ratio \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t37th for citations per faculty \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t27th for international faculty ratio and 198th for international student ratio \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\r\n\t\t\t \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t \r\n\t\t\t \r\n\r\n\t\t\tSubject strengths* \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRanked 15th in the world for arts \u0026 humanities \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tNinth for engineering \u0026 technology \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t27th for life sciences \u0026 medicine \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t12th for natural sciences \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tNinth for social sciences \u0026 management \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tRanked joint 41st in the world for arts \u0026 humanities \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tJoint fourth for engineering \u0026 technology \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\tJoint 119th for life sciences \u0026 medicine \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t14th for natural sciences \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\t17th for social sciences \u0026 management \r\n\t\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t \r\n\t\t\t \r\n\r\n\t\t\tLocation \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\tLocated in south-west Singapore, next to Kent Ridge. \r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\t\r\n\t\t\tLocated in the western part of Singapore.

Taking a closer look, both universities perform very well in the indicators used to compile the rankings. Both schools place within the global 100 for every indicator but one. \r\n\r\nNUS beats NTU for its reputation among academics, ranking 12th to NTU’s 39th. NUS also comes out on top for employer reputation, ranking an impressive 36 places above NTU. \r\n\r\nHowever, NTU is stronger than NUS for all the remaining indicators. For research impact (citations per faculty member) NTU is the clear leader, ranked 37th in the world to NUS’s 50th. NTU is also ahead in its ratio of academic staff members to students, with a rank of 91st compared to NUS at 99th. \r\n\r\nFinally, when assessing the levels of international diversity on campus amongst its faculty, NTU achieves 27th place for its high number of international faculty members, while NUS ranks 29th. NUS narrowly wins on the number of international students, ranking just four places above NTU, at 184th. \r\n\r\nSo, while both top universities in Singapore have some room for improvement, they are nonetheless highly international institutions. \r\n\r\nSubject strengths \r\n\r\nIf you’re still unsure which one gets your vote in the NUS vs NTU debate, a look at the QS World University Rankings by

Cities ranking, Singapore has unfortunately also been ranked as the fourth most expensive city to live in by the The Economist\u0027s Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2020. However, when taking tuition fees into account, Singapore is slightly more affordable for students, with tuition fees typically much lower than you’d find in study destinations such as the United States. \r\n\r\nFurthermore, many students will find Singapore’s high cost of living worth the money – the city is renowned for its prosperity and high quality of life, with low levels of crime and unemployment. It’s ideal for students who wish to immerse themselves in a very diverse study destination, with a fascinating blend of Eastern and Western cultures to explore. \r\n\r\nNUS is in the south-west of the city on a 150-hectare campus next to Kent Ridge. NTU’s main campus, next to the town of Jurong West in Singapore’s West Region, covers 200-hectares of land, making it the largest university campus in the city. \r\n\r\nStudent community \r\n\r\nBoth of these two top universities in Singapore have a large student population. There are around 43,885 students enrolled at NUS, of which 12,125 are postgraduates. NTU has approximately 32,940 students and around 8,360 of these are postgraduates. \r\n\r\nThere’s currently no data for the number of international students at each university, but both achieve fairly high scores for this indicator in the QS World University Rankings®, as mentioned above. \r\n\r\nTuition fees \r\n\r\nTuition fees at NUS and NTU vary depending on your subject, which fee classification you fall under (as either a Singaporean citizen, permanent resident or international student) and whether you’re in receipt of an MOE Tuition Grant. \r\n\r\nOffered by the Singaporean Ministry of Education (MOE), these grants are available for both domestic and international students and can help cover much of the cost of your tuition fees (for a full-time diploma or undergraduate program). In return, international students must agree to work for a Singaporean company for at least three years after graduating (or, if you studied medicine or dentistry, five or six years). \r\n\r\nIf you don’t have a MOE Grant, international undergraduate students can expect to pay between S$32,250 and S$39,050 (~£15,950 to £20,870) for most courses apart from medicine and dentistry which cost S$161,800 (~£110,300) per year. Students who are subsidised by the MOE Grant can pay as little as S$17,550 (~£9,380) per year for some subjects. \r\n\r\nAt graduate level, non-subsidized annual tuition fees at NUS start at S$38,750 (~£20,710) for arts and social sciences subjects. The government-subsidized annual cost would be S$21,400 (~£11,440). \r\n\r\nAt NTU, international undergraduate students who aren’t subsidized by the MOE Tuition Grant will pay S$31,970 - $36,830 (~US$17,100 – £19,690) per year for most courses. If you have the Tuition Grant, you’ll pay S$17,550 (~£9,380) per year for most subjects. Again, medicine is the most expensive degree option, costing S$74,900 (~£39,600) per year (subsidized – the non-subsidized amount is not applicable). \r\n\r\nAt graduate level, NTU students with the Tuition Grant can pay as little as S$7,075 (~£3,780) a year for a master’s degree. \r\n\r\nFinancial aid \r\n\r\nBoth these top universities in Singapore offer a variety of funding opportunities to help make studying there more affordable, including grants, loans and scholarships. \r\n\r\nLooking firstly at NUS’ financial aid, the university offers two scholarships for international undergraduate students: the ASEAN Undergraduate Scholarship, which is aimed at incoming students from ASEAN member states (excluding Singapore). The applicable ASEAN member countries are Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. This scholarship covers tuition fees and provides a grant for living costs. \r\n\r\nThe other scholarship, the Science \u0026 Technology Undergraduate Scholarship, is for international students from any country in Asia, and again provides tuition fees and a living allowance. At graduate level, scholarships at NUS include the NUS Research Scholarship, which awards a monthly stipend and tuition fees for outstanding graduate students to conduct research leading to a higher degree at the university. \r\n\r\nNational University of Singapore also offers loans and bursaries, with bursaries awarded based on the applicant’s assessed level of need. The university also runs a Work Study Assistance scheme which helps students to supplement their finances with part-time work. \r\n\r\nAt Nanyang Technological University (NTU), funding opportunities include bursaries, the Tuition Fee Loan, available for all full-time undergraduates, and the Work Study Scheme which allows you to work part-time on campus to supplement your finances. \r\n\r\nThe ASEAN Undergraduate Scholarship is also available at NTU, as well as the Nanyang Scholarship, awarded to outstanding new undergraduate students of any nationality. This scholarship will cover your tuition fees as well as providing an annual living allowance, travel grant, computer allowance and more. \r\n\r\nAt graduate level, scholarship options open to international students at NTU include the Nanyang President\u0027s Graduate Scholarship, which aims to encourage outstanding students to study a PhD at the university and provides tuition fees, a monthly living allowance and more. The university also offers the NTU Research Scholarship for prospective PhD students. \r\n\r\nWant more content like this?

We would like to clarify that NUS is ranked 27th in the world for life sciences \u0026 medicine, 92 places higher than NTU.
