What are the admission criteria?
The College employs a holistic approach to the evaluation of each applicant. There are no set criteria for admission, but applicants should have taken a rigorous curriculum in secondary school, and show potential to thrive in the interdisciplinary and demanding Yale-NUS course of study. Interviews, recommendations, essays, and extracurricular accomplishments are also evaluated to capture the intangible qualities that an applicant brings to the Yale-NUS community.
