Host Programme

To help in your transition into NUS and Singapore, tap on our pool of hosts and NUS student buddies to help you navigate your way.

Important Note:

In light of the COVID-19 situation and as a precautionary measure to safeguard the health and safety of all our participants, the Host Programme will be postponed to commence in January 2021 (Academic Year 20/21 Semester 2) till further notice.

Please keep a lookout for updates here!

Our hosts are adult volunteers who come from all walks of life; they include NUS alumni and staff who are Singaporeans. Our volunteers have hosted our International Students for the last 10 years. They are committed to making our new international students feel a sense of warm and home.

So look forward to a meaningful time getting to know Singapore’s culture, life and work.

"I would like to thank Mr and Mrs. Ngiam for being my host family. They are very nice and approachable. As a foreign student, I feel very lucky and enjoy the opportunity to be with them."
