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. Refer to the application guide.


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, all interviews will be conducted online.

Outcome notification

All applicants will receive an email notification on your admission outcome latest by early May. Upon receiving the email, you will be able to log in to the SUTD Admissions System to view and download your notification of admission (and scholarship, if applicable) outcome letter.




If you wish to appeal against SUTD's admissions decision, you are required to submit an online appeal between 11 May 2021 and 24 May 2021.

If you had applied with predicted International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma results and wish to appeal against SUTD’s admissions decision, you may submit an online appeal using your actual IB results between 5 July 2021 and 18 July 2021.

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 applicants who have submitted an application in the current admissions exercise, and have received outcomes of their application may submit an appeal. Appeals can only be submitted here after logging into the SUTD Admissions System. Appeals via any other channels will not be considered.
