National University of Singapore (NUS)

The National University of Singapore (NUS) is one of the three largest public and autonomous universities in Singapore. Founded in 1905, it is the oldest institute of higher learning (IHL) in Singapore, as well as the largest university in the country in terms of student enrolment and curriculum offered. NUS is a research-intensive, comprehensive university with an entrepreneurial dimension. It is also widely considered to be the most prestigious university in Singapore.

Singapore is a vibrantly cosmopolitan and culturally diverse city-state off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula in South East Asia. It is among the 20 smallest countries in the world yet still is a world leader in many areas, such as education, economics, aviation and public service.
