Undergraduate (Bachelors) degrees
If you are studying A-levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB) then you can begin from the first year of a Bachelors degree. Please see individual course pages for entry requirements.
If you have already completed the first year of an undergraduate degree at a university in Singapore, you may be considered for entry to the first or second year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects and/or modules.
If you hold a three-year Diploma awarded by one of the Polytechnics in Singapore, you can be considered for admission to the first year of a Bachelors degree. You may be considered for entry to the second year if you have achieved high marks and taken relevant courses.
For more information about available degrees please see individual course pages.
Postgraduate (Masters) degrees
If you hold a Bachelors degree with second class honours awarded by a university in Singapore you will be considered for entry to a Masters degree. Some degrees may require upper second class honours.
For more information about available degrees please see the individual course pages.
PhDs and other research degrees
To apply for a PhD (or other postgraduate research qualification) you must have a Bachelors degree from a recognised university with at least second class honours, usually in a related subject area (depending on the subject that you wish to study).
You must also be able to demonstrate practical knowledge of appropriate research methodologies. Research degrees are demanding and intensive: to succeed at this level you must be highly motivated, be able to work independently, and have an appropriate familiarity with the discipline and its associated research techniques/methodologies.
