National University of Singapore

A leading public university founded in 1905, the National University of Singapore (NUS) serves nearly 30,000 undergraduate and graduate students with a focus on Asian perspectives and expertise.  The partnership between UNC and NUS originated in 2003 between the UNC College of Arts and Sciences and the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS). Since then, student exchanges and faculty relationships have flourished between UNC’s College, Kenan-Flagler Business School, Honors Carolina program, and School of Dentistry, and NUS’s FASS, Faculty of Science, University Scholars Program (honors), School of Computing, Business School, and Faculty of Dentistry.

More than 700 students from both universities have studied at the partner university, with almost 300 UNC students participating in the Carolina Southeast Asia Summer Program based at NUS from 2003-2016. The NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Faculty of Science and the UNC College of Arts and Sciences also collaborate on an innovative undergraduate joint degree program established in 2007, one of the first undergraduate international joint degrees at a U.S. institution. In the program, students spend two to four semesters at the partner institution and receive a degree from both universities when they graduate. The program is open to students majoring in biology, economics, English literature, geography, global studies, history, and political science.
