Graduate Programmes

NUS offers a wide range of graduate programmes catering for a variety of interests, namely:

  • Doctoral degree programmes at NUS are primarily research-based. They equip students with the skills required to advance knowledge, and human progress. Doctoral degrees are typically the first choice of students who seek depth of knowledge, enjoy creative problem solving, and who aspire to hold high level positions in their respective fields.
  • Master's degree 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 Diploma provides focused professional training in a specific niche. Graduate Diploma is often favoured by students who seek additional exposure to an area of interest without committing themselves to longer-term further studies.

These programmes offer excellent opportunities for students to further 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. Increasingly, students pursuing a research-oriented career (whether in industry or academe) and/or wanting to advance quickly in their chosen career, elect to enrol in a Doctoral programme.

NUS is home to students and faculty members from many countries. Its faculty members have an international reputation for research excellence in many fields. They have built collaborations in research across national borders and disciplines. Some of these collaborations provide opportunities for students to work towards a Ph.D. degree conferred jointly by NUS and an overseas partner university.

NUS’ programmes are characterized by intellectual rigour and cutting-edge scholarship. They are designed to nurture a passion for inquiry and to provide you with the tools to tackle intellectual challenges with confidence and creativity.

As a community with a global orientation, NUS welcomes applications from highly qualified students, both local and international. The full list of NUS graduate programmes are given below together with hyperlinks to the individual programme websites.
