Exchange Programmes

1. Global Education Opportunities

GEM Explorer


GEM Explorer enables students to take courses or do research in an overseas partner university for one full semester while exploring a new country and culture.

GEM Discoverer

GEM Discoverer offers various short-term programmes (ranging from 2 to 22 weeks) that place students overseas for work and/or study. During these stints, students earn academic units that count towards their NTU degree.

Overseas Attachment Programmes

Overseas Attachment provides opportunities for students to widen their perspective of the working world. It enhances their employability and career mobility worldwide upon graduation and prepares them to compete locally and internationally.

Fee-Paying Students

NTU students who are not selected for the above programmes or keen to study in an overseas university which does not have an exchange agreement with NTU may still pursue a study there and pay tuition fees to the host university (i.e. on a fee-paying scheme).

2. Opportunity to Study in a Local University

Singapore Universities Students Exchange Programme

The Singapore Universities Students Exchange Programme (SUSEP) offers NTU students the opportunity to study a few courses or up to one semester at NUS or SMU. This is made possible through a tripartite agreement with NUS and SMU.
