Semester Study Abroad

Yale-NUS has developed partnerships with leading universities and colleges across the globe. Students will have the chance to study with our exchange partners in a wide array of cities across North America, South America, Asia, Oceania, and Europe. Many of these partnerships operate on an exchange basis, with our partner universities sending students to Yale-NUS as well. Partner institutions have been selected for their rigorous academics, vibrant student life, cultural immersion opportunities and health and safety factors. Some institutions are specialised in certain academic areas, while others offer a wide range of academic courses and cater to all Yale-NUS majors.

Non-Partner Programmes

In addition to being able to study abroad at one of the partner programmes listed above, students may also, under special circumstances, apply to CIPE for a limited number of CIPE-funded spots to study abroad at non-partner institutions or programmes. Funding for non-partner programmes is intended to support students with specific academic interests that are not necessarily covered through our partner institutions, and to increase the diversity of Yale-NUS students’ study abroad experiences. Due to the limited number of non-partner spots, we strongly encourage students to consider our existing partner institutions before applying for non-partner funding.
