University Profile
Singapore has established its reputation as a regional educational hub and Singapore boasts one of the best education systems in Asia and the world. Singapore schools have taken part in many international competitions and have won many prestigious awards. The main language of instruction in Singapore is English.

Spread over 30.5 hectares of land (about the size of 60 football fields), Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) is situated next to the Yio Chu Kang MRT station. The modern campus, with its new and state-of-the-art facilities, is modelled on a town center concept to provide all the conveniences of a self-contained "Teaching and Learning City".

Here are some YouTube videos highlighting NYP: The NYP website has some quick facts about Singapore. 

Academic Profile
The NYP program is unique as students are guaranteed to participate in a semester-long hands-on training and modular internship program. 

The program has the following structure, but due to the length of SDSU semesters, NYP may work with a student and the company to ensure the student does not miss the start of the semester at SDSU. The typical program timeline is 22 weeks for 22 units. 
Timeline Classes & Internship Duration
Week 1 - 6 On-campus training: Financial Training Centre 6 weeks
Week 7- 12 On-campus training: Retail Centre or Customer Experience and Analytic Centre 6 weeks
Week 7 - 16 Internship - Business Focus 10 wks.
  22 weeks Total

* Due to the length of SDSU semesters, NYP may work with a student and the internship company to ensure the student does not miss the start of the semester at SDSU. The typical program timeline is 22 weeks for 22 units. 

NYP helps arrange on-campus housing for students. One of the key advantage of on-campus housing is that it is just right next to the Yio Chu Kang MRT (or our local train system).  From here, students can easily access many parts of Singapore very easily.

There are alternate options outside of campus as well. For more information about NYP campus facilities and its surroundings, click 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. The insurance charge will appear on the student's account services billing. Students will receive more detailed instructions regarding insurance before departure. For more information on costs, refer to the website.

Passport and Visa:
You must have a valid passport to participate on an exchange program. Your passport must be valid for the duration of the program and for at least 6 months past the program end date to be eligible to receive a student visa. If you hold a passport from a country other than the U.S., be sure to understand what you will need for entry pertaining to your citizenship at the time of participation.

After a student is accepted by NYP, he/she will be required to obtain a Student Pass. This process will be initiated by the NYP staff and they will also send more information after formal acceptance into their program. For more entry/exit information on your country, please visit the U.S. Department of State website

NYP staff recommend that students do NOT purchase a flight until their visa is secured.
