Autonomous Universities to Consider New Applications; Prospective Students May Apply by 17 May

30 Apr 2020

Joint media statement by 6 AUs

Given the global disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be prospective Singaporean undergraduates who were planning to study overseas, but now prefer to study locally. To support these students, all the Autonomous Universities (AUs) viz. the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), Singapore Management University (SMU), and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), will now consider applicants on a case-by-case basis, outside of their official application windows.
 
Interested applicants can refer to the respective AUs’ websites for more information and write directly to the AUs by 17 May 2020. As previously announced, the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) will already be reopening its application portal from 4 to 17 May, so interested applicants can take advantage of this new window period. There is currently no change to the academic calendars for the remaining five AUs.
 
All AUs will assess the merit of each applicant and continue to ensure that admissions are based on open competition among eligible candidates.
 
The AUs are also aware that there may be students who are midway through their studies at overseas universities, and they are unable to continue with their studies during this period or may wish to pursue other forms of learning in the meantime. These students can sign up for Continuing Education and Training (CET) modular courses offered by the AUs, or enrol in an AU for a semester. However there is no guarantee of credit recognition by their home universities. Interested applicants can refer to the AUs’ websites for more information.
