Singapore is a small city-state located just off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It is a highly urbanized nation, filled with museums, shops, and theme attractions through which visitors can experience the modern and multicultural face of Asia. Most of the island is accessible through public buses and the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) rail system. Singapore Changi Airport offers routes to 200 cities in 68 countries. Low cost airlines make visiting much of South East Asia affordable.
The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and the National University of Singapore allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes at NUS. The exchange program is best for VA in-state residents. Students not chosen for the exchange program have the option of assisted enrollment. Assisted enrollment requires W&M students to pay tuition to NUS. Out-of-state students often find assisted enrollment the best option. All W&M students pay housing, meals and fees on site in Singapore.

|NOTE: 1. Applications are first reviewed by the Reves Center, and students nominated for the exchange or assisted enrollment programs are notified. Application materials are then sent to the school abroad (and the school abroad often requests additional materials at this time). When the school abroad completes their application review, students are then notified of the final acceptance decision. This timeline varies greatly from school to school. In rare cases a student nominated by the Reves Center will not be selected by the school abroad to attend their university; the Reves Center would then explore further options for the student. 2. Any start and end dates listed are to serve as a guide for general planning, but specific dates are subject to change and may not include mandatory orientation programs or exams.
