Step 1:

Login with your NRIC / FIN and the PIN issued by NUS.


Step 2:

After login, your personal particulars and academic results will be pre-loaded into the application form. Please verify these information as your admission outcome will be adversely affected by inaccurate information.

Indicate changes or discrepancies, if any, at Section 7 of the application form and submit the relevant supporting documents to the Office of Admissions for verification.

If you have been exempted from the Mother Tongue Language (MTL) and have been issued a letter of exemption by MOE, please choose “Yes” at the ‘A’ Level results option in Section 7 and submit the exemption letter to the Office of Admissions.

The supporting documents must be submitted via the Uploading Facility by the application closing date of 19 March 2020. Otherwise, it will be assumed that there are no changes or discrepancies.

More information on submission of MTL result slip is available at here.

Only relevant subjects such as Additional Mathematics and Physics taken at Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'O' Level or Integrated Programme Secondary 4 will be shown on Section 3 of the application form.  These subject grades will be used to fulfill subject prerequisites, if applicable.

Other sections of the application form that you might need to complete:

  • Section 8 (optional section): 
    Information at the Outstanding Achievements section, if you wish to be considered under the Aptitude Based Admissions Scheme
  • Section 9 (compulsory section):
    Choice of courses

Step 5:

Click the “Submit” button to submit your formal admission application online. You can only submit an application for admission once in each academic year. Hardcopy application forms will not be accepted. An 8-digit application number will be assigned to you if you had successfully submitted your application.

A copy of the submitted online application form will be shown on the acknowledgement page. An acknowledgement email will also be sent to the primary email address you have indicated/updated in your application (please note that NUS has experienced difficulty in email delivery to Hotmail accounts previously).

You should save and/or print a copy of the acknowledgement page and email for your own reference. NO confirmation letter will be given.

If you do not get any acknowledgement page or email after submitting your online application, your submission may be unsuccessful. You should contact the Office of Admissions to check if you have successfully submitted an online application to us.

Once you have successfully submitted an online application to us, your application status will be reflected as ‘Application Received’ when you login to our Online Application Status Facility (OASF) to check the status of your application.


Step 6:

The acknowledgement page and email will indicate the list of supporting documents you are required to submit if you had indicated changes/discrepancies at Section 7 of the online application form.

To complete your admission application, you must submit the required supporting documents with the Application Checklist as the cover page electronically at via the "Online Submission of Documents" facility found in the Online Application Status Facility (OASF) and make payment for the S$10 application fee.

Please DO NOT submit documents that are not listed on the application acknowledgement page. Submitting unnecessary documents will slow down the admission process for your application.

DO NOT submit original copies as all documents will not be returned.

The submission of supporting documents and application fee payment must be made by 19 March 2020. Otherwise your application will be deemed incomplete and withdrawn from consideration.
