Program Description:

University Profile
Ranked among the top 1% of universities worldwide, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) places students in an academically stimulating environment that is both culturally enriching and socially fulfilling. NTU's comprehensive and innovative approach towards education and research will help contribute to student's future success and inspire them to realize their full potential as an entrepreneurial and tech-savvy leader. NTU offers diverse and enriching programs in four colleges: Business, Engineering, Sciences, and Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences, with English being the core medium of instruction. There is also a medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, set up jointly with the Imperial College London.

The many extracurricular activities offered on and off campus will also complement students' formal studies and help build lasting friendships from the moment they set foot onto the campus.
Academic Notes
Students enroll at NTU through the GEM Trailblazer semester exchange or academic year exchange program. Students must have completed two semesters of study at SDSU to apply. 

All SDSU students must enroll in the equivalent of at least 12 semester units to be considered full-time while studying abroad. This is typically 3-5 courses at NTU.

Exchange students MUST select at least ten (10) undergraduate and/or postgraduate courses (in order of preference) in the online application for approval. This is to ensure adequate number of approved courses prior to arrival in NTU (if you are accepted for admission to NTU). Course approval is subject to NTU pre-requisites and vacancies available.

For more information about the four colleges and Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, click HERE.

An undergraduate course search tool is available HERE. Choose either Acad Yr 1 (Fall) or Acad Yr 2 (Spring). Use the course search tool as a reference - please note that not all courses may be available for the term you intend to study. SDSU considers courses labeled 200/2000+ to be upper division.

Note that there are courses NOT available to exchange students.  A graduate course search tool is available HERE.

Insurance Requirement
All SDSU students are required by the Chancellor's office to be enrolled in the CSU Foreign Traveler Insurance Program (CSU FTIP) for their program abroad.
