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.
