Admissions Team

We've been described as "cool", "quirky" and "energetic", but we are really just a bunch of friendly people who can't stop talking about Yale-NUS and who love meeting prospective students and parents! As admissions officers, we spend half the year visiting high schools across Singapore and around the world, and the other half of the year poring over thousands of applications to choose the amazing people who will be part of the next class at Yale-NUS. We love it!

Admissions Fellows

Admissions Fellows are juniors and seniors who have been selected to interview short-listed applicants in the college's admissions process. Here are a few quotes from our students on why they joined the admissions team.

"Any college application is gruelling to some extent, but what struck me about the Yale-NUS admissions team was the extent to which they were able to empower the student applicants. Strip away the high-stakes of the interviews, and they still remain in my mind as great conversations that taught me a lot about who I am and what I love. I am a fellow in hopes that I can offer that to someone else, too.” – Roshan Singh '18

"I wanted to spend the final year of my college giving back to this institution, and I wish to play my part in ensuring that deserving students get to live the joys and wonders that I have experienced so far. I truly believe that Yale-NUS contains some the best intellectual, creative, and emotional talents anyone can ever encounter. Each and every single student adds something new and incredible to the college community. And I wish to spend my final semester in college ensuring that this community grows bigger, more diverse, and more wonderful.” – Sai Pogaru ‘18

"My own interview felt like a conversation with a friend, even though I walked in with a pounding heart. The interview ended up being the determining factor when I was deciding between my college acceptances and I hopefully want to recreate my interview experience for a future prospective student.” – Sze Ching Lam ‘19
