Established in 1905 to educate and train medical professionals for Singapore, the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is a leading medical educational and research institution in Asia.
UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS
Exchanges will take place with students from NUS, NTU or DUKE-NUS. Apart from hospitals, Singapore offers exchange opportunities with polyclinics and other healthcare authorities. Find out more about our various programmes here
RESEARCH PROJECTS AND LABS
Singapore stands at the cutting edge of medical research, with passionate researchers, and a strong research infrastructure spanning several laboratories throughout Singapore. Students under SCORE will be labs in the Institute of Medical Biology. Find out more about our research opportunities here.
Boarding will be provided in the form of pocket money. Most hospitals have food courts serving various local cuisines, as well as attached malls just a short walk away.
Lodging in a mixed gender dormitory, with a bed and locker, as well as breakfast and basic facilities will be provided. If you have any particular requirements regarding accommodation, please inform the local committee when applying. Due to the high cost of living in Singapore, you may have to pay more if you would like to change your accommodation (only possible if you are on a unilateral exchange).
We will primarily use the regular MRT (subway) system to tavel around Singapore.
Singapore offers a variety of must-sees, depending on your own personal interests. Whatever you may be passionate about, Singapore holds something for you. Our personal favourites include our beautiful Botanics Garden, the stunning Marina Bay area and the cultural gem that is Chinatown. Explore what best suits you here!
