The University Scholars Programme (USP) is an undergraduate academic programme established in 2001 in the National University of Singapore (NUS). Each year, USP admits around 220 to 240 undergraduates from across seven faculties and schools in NUS.
The USP education focuses on strengthening core academic and professional skills – writing and critical thinking, analytical and quantitative reasoning, the ability to ask the right questions and pursue research, and the habit of reflecting upon ideas within a broad intellectual landscape. We do this through an intensive and rigorous multidisciplinary curriculum, and a rich offering of local and international programmes. Our focus on core skills complements our students’ strengths in their major disciplines, enabling them to make substantial connections across fields, enhancing their intellectual depth and breadth.
USP students reside in Cinnamon College at the NUS University Town. Alongside a vibrant student life, the residential college is a space for discussions on diverse issues, allowing our students to develop meaningful engagement with real world matters.
