The Faculty has in the last few years been working with external partner universities to develop joint and double degree programmes both at the undergraduate as well as at graduate level. These programmes represent a well-thought out pedagogical basis and curriculum to take advantage of the complementary academic strengths of our partner universities and couple with those of NUS to the advantage of our students.
