Aimed to enrich students with learning experiences in a totally different educational, social, and cultural environment, we strongly encourage students to participate in the Student Exchange Programme (SEP).

Through SEP participation, students have the opportunity to explore fresh perspectives and alternative approaches to the subjects they study, experience new cultures and different ways of living, meet friends from around the world and travel to places you've only read about. By stepping out of Singapore, students on exchange can explore new vistas and enhance their intellectual, leadership, and personal potential in exciting and unpredictable ways.

USP offers its students exclusive exchange programmes with various partner universities. You can choose to participate in these special tie-ups (see SEP Application) or in the university-wide exchanges with other universities around the world.

University-Wide and Faculty-Wide SEP

While students in USP do not receive special consideration for the university-administered SEP, our students are excellent candidates for exchange because of their academic talents, broad interests, and engagement with and curiosity in the world around them.

Currently, the applications for University-Level SEP and Faculty-level SEP are administered by the Global Relations Office (GRO) and the administrative offices of the students' home faculties and schools.

Special SEP between USP and partner universities

USP has exclusive student exchange tie-ups with partner universities whose approach to education is similar to USP: to inspire students to a lifetime of broad intellectual curiosity, self-sustained inquiry and personal growth through carefully designed small classes, close advising, and a collegial environment.

USP has tie-ups with the following partner universities:


(7 partner universities/colleges)


*Students applying to UNC through USP enrol in courses at the College of Arts and Sciences.



(6 partner universities/colleges)


*SEPs with Lady Shri Ram and Hindu Colleges are offered as Cultural Immersion Programmes.
