Yes, international students can still apply to Yale-NUS College. Through our holistic admissions process, we strive to create a community of students from a diverse range of backgrounds. However, entry into Singapore is subjected to approval by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) and Ministry of Education (MOE).

Yale-NUS College works closely with incoming students on their Student Pass applications, ensuring that documents are provided in a complete and timely manner for ICA to process and approve. However, as a result of COVID-19, every traveller must apply for approval to enter Singapore. For incoming students, approval is granted by MOE.
