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.

Virtual Event
Interested in finding out more about Yale-NUS from the convenience of your home? Then sign up for our new Virtual Visit Day programme where we will bring the Yale-NUS experience directly to you! Virtual Visit Day is an hour-long webinar that brings you the best parts of a campus visit through an online platform. Each webinar will include: a short information session, a virtual campus tour, and the opportunity to chat with our current students through a themed panel. Please note that these webinars will be held in Singapore Standard Time (GMT+8). These sessions come at no charge, so all you need is an hour of time, internet access, and an open mind to explore what opportunities await at Yale-NUS College!
Note: More sessions in June-July 2020 will be released soon. We hope to see you then!
