Application Steps

What it is

Apply online

Check that you meet the requirements for the qualification you are applying with and apply within the application period. The online form will require you to provide the following:

  • personal details
  • academic results – high school final exam as well as secondary school Year 4 results 
  • listing of key co-curricular activities, awards or achievements,
  • testimonial or referees’ contact details
  • responses to a few short response questions 

You only need to submit one application form for consideration of admission and scholarship. We do not charge an application fee. A guide to our application form can be found here.*


You will generally be notified within a month upon your application submission if you are shortlisted for an admission interview. The interview format may vary depending on your application profile and the programme shortlisted for.

In view of the current COVID-19 situation, the university has put in place various measures to safeguard the SUTD community and our visitors. In particular, all visitors to SUTD, including applicants attending admission/scholarship interviews, will need to make a travel declaration and undergo temperature screening prior to the interview. All group interviews will cease and will be replaced by an individual interview format with one or two faculty/staff interviewer(s) over a 20-30 min session instead. Those who are on Quarantine Order / Stay-Home Notice or have some concerns over the interview arrangement may contact the Admissions Office for alternative arrangements.

Notification of admission and/or scholarship offer

If you are successful in your application, you will be notified of the offer within three weeks after the interview, and will be able to download your offer letter online.

In addition, you and your parents are welcome to join us for a small-group offer reception to clarify any questions you have with our faculty and staff then. Alternatively, you can also contact your Admissions Point of Contact (POC) or connect with us through the various communication channels (e.g. enquiry form) available.

Notification of unsuccessful application

If you are unsuccessful in your application, you will be notified by end of April. You will be notified by email and/or post.




If you wish to appeal against SUTD's admissions decision, you are required to submit an online appeal within 2 weeks following notification of the application outcome.  Your appeal must represent significant and compelling new academic and/or personal information that was not present at the time of application and which brings merit for reconsideration.

Only appeals submitted through the online application portal will be considered. This is accessible to applicants who have submitted an application in this current admissions exercise, and have received outcomes of their application. Appeals via any other avenues will not be considered. Appeals can be submitted here after logging into SUTD Admissions system.
