OVERVIEW
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

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

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).

TRANSPORTATION

We will primarily use the regular MRT (subway) system to tavel around Singapore.

SOCIAL PROGRAM

As Singapore is a a small NMO, we aim to tailor the social programme to your personal preferences. The social programme would usually include a welcome get-together with the local committee and the other exchange students.
Upon arrival, you will be assigned a local contact person, who will help you settle into your accommodation and handle any issues or questions you may have. If there is anything you would like to do in particular in Singapore, please do let the local committee know so that we will be able to plan it for you beforehand!
However, do note that visits to places that require admission fees will come as an additional cost to you, and will not be funded by AMSA-Singapore. The social program varies according to the school calendar and availability of members. The vacation period in Singapore is during the periods of May to the start of August and in December, so it is more likely that the local committee would be more able to bring you around Singapore during those vacation periods.

MUST SEE

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!
