Talent is the cornerstone of a great university. As the leading university in Asia, NUS is and must continue to be a magnet, attracting the best talent from around the world. This allows us to fulfil our mission to be a great university.
From our beginnings in 1905 as the Straits and Federated Malay States Government Medical School, we have grown into a highly respected global university. We are a very special institution, founded by the community, for the community. We will never take our eyes off our goals: to educate, inspire and transform our students and the world we live in. We have been blessed with the support of a community of individuals who share our vision and who have come forward to help cultivate talented young minds who will go on to shape the future.
