The diverse NUS student body includes 4,000 international students from 60 countries, out of a total student population of more than 35,000.

The NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) offers the annual FASStrack Asia program in the summer. With Asia in the world’s spotlight as it undergoes rapid growth, the summer program will tap into NUS’ research strengths in the region and offer students an enriching knowledge and understanding of various Asian-related topics and issues. Taught over a 5-week summer period, students will attend classes, participate in active discussions and learn from academic experts specializing in their area of study. Some courses include field trips to nearby countries in order to comparatively study certain issues.

Singapore is situated at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is at the center of Southeast Asia. Three major cultures co-exist in Singapore namely Chinese, Malay, and Indian. A multicultural and multilingual society, Singapore is an ideal entry point into Asia for students without previous experience in the region. Singapore’s central location allows for convenient and affordable travel to surrounding countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and more.

In Summer 2021, the FASStrack Asia program will only be offered remotely.
