Which category should I apply for?
Please check with your home university if there is a provision for the exchange of research students between them and NUS. Exchange students attend NUS on a fee waiver basis and are only liable to pay miscellaneous student fees.
If your home university does not have a research exchange agreement with NUS, you may apply as a fee-paying Non-Exchange student.
Non-Exchange students are liable to pay both the semester-based research fee and miscellaneous student fee to the University.
