Postgraduate Overview

The National University of Singapore (NUS) offers a wide range of graduate programmes that are characterised by intellectual rigour. They are designed to nurture a passion for inquiry and to provide students with the tools to tackle intellectual challenges with confidence and creativity. NUS graduate programmes cater to a variety of interests, namely:

  • Doctoral Degrees
    Primarily research-based, these programmes are typically the choice for students who seek depth of knowledge, enjoy creative problem-solving, and aspire to hold high-level positions in their respective fields. They equip students with the skills required to advance knowledge, and human progress.
  • Master's Degrees
    These programmes are primarily designed to prepare students for the practice of a profession (typically Master's by coursework), or to master a subject area as a precursor to doctoral training (typically Master's by research).
  • Graduate Diplomas
    These programmes are often favoured by students who seek additional exposure to an area of interest without committing themselves to longer-term further studies. It focuses on professional training in a specific niche.

These programmes offer excellent opportunities for students to develop their potential as intellectual leaders for a wide range of career paths. Prospective graduate students should consider carefully which type of graduate programme most suits their interests and career aspirations. 

To continue nurturing future leaders, NUS strives to ensure that our programmes are relevant and anticipate the needs of tomorrow by partnering with industry players as well as government agencies. Beyond preparing our graduates to excel in the age of Industry 4.0, the academia-business-government triumvirate allows NUS to play a role in actively shaping the economy of Industry 4.0. 

Singapore and NUS offer a compelling proposition for the emerging change-makers and leaders of Industry 4.0. Find out more about the Featured Masters (Coursework-based) programmes that NUS offers.
