Special Programmes

The Senate may approve different requirements and provisions for the following special graduate programmes.

The Double Degree Programmes (DDP) provides opportunities for students to graduate with two degrees from two different Faculties/Schools within NUS. Double degree coursework programmes normally allow some modules taken to be double counted towards the requirements of both degrees, thus allowing the student to complete the two degrees in a shorter period of time than it would take to complete both degrees separately.

The following are the Double Degree Programmes (Graduate) currently available:

 Faculties /Schools  Graduate Double Degree Programmes
NUS Business School & Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy
Faculty of Law & Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy
NUS Business School & School of Design & Environment (Department of Real Estate)

These special degree programmes with premier overseas universities provide our students with further academic challenges and the opportunities to learn alongside other brilliant students in cross-cultural settings.

Besides collaborations on Double Degree Programmes (DDP) in formats as described in the other section, Joint Degree Programmes (JDPs) are also introduced. A JDP combines the strengths of both NUS and the partner university, and integrates international experience fully into a student's course of study and research. Students will be jointly taught, supervised, assessed and jointly awarded a degree. The degree scroll bearing the crests and official signatories of both universities will be a doubly validated qualification.

The tables below show the various DDPs and JDPs that are currently available:

Apart from JDP with overseas partner university, NUS also integrates with local universities where students will be jointly taught, supervised, assessed and jointly awarded a degree. The degree scroll bearing the crests and official signatories of both universities will be a doubly validated qualification.

Currently, we offer the following Joint Degree Programmes with a local university:

NUS Schools/ Faculties Local Universities Degrees Offered
Faculty of Engineering Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)

For graduate students, concurrent degree programmes (CDPs) typically involve a combination of a Master's degree and a PhD from the same Faculty or from two different Faculties. Such programmes allow a student to pursue the two degrees concurrently. Normally, the programme structure would enable a student to graduate in a shorter period of time with both degrees, than if each degree was to be pursued separately.

The following CDP within NUS is currently being offered:

Faculties /Schools Degrees Offered
NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) and
NUS Business School

Clinical Degree Programmes usually require students to complete coursework, a thesis and supervised clinical training practicum.

The following Clinical Degree Programmes are currently being offered:

Faculties /Schools Degrees Offered
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Duke-NUS Medical School
Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine

A professional doctorate degree is designed for professionals who wish to deepen and advance their professional practice and career. It aims to develop researching professionals and is more appropriate for those pursuing professional rather than academic careers since it is based on industrial rather than academic research and development.

The following Professional Doctoral Programmes are current being offered:

Faculties /Schools Degrees Offered
Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
  • Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych)
Faculty of Engineering
Faculty of Science
