Undergraduate Education

University education at NUS aims at cultivating well-informed and articulate people capable of critical thinking and learning. To meet this objective, NUS undergraduate programmes strive for a healthy balance that would satisfy both the specialisation needed for a subject major and the broader expectations of University education.

The undergraduate curriculum comprises three main components, namely, University Level Requirements (ULR), Programme Requirements, and Unrestricted Elective (UE) Course. Whereas Programme Requirements privilege depth, ULR and Unrestricted Elective (UE) Course are designed to foster breadth of learning. For more information, you may refer to these links:
