Did you know?
Singapore’s Bukit Timah Nature Reserve holds more species of trees than the entire North American continent.
Whizzing around Singapore can take a matter of minutes, thanks to one of the world’s most efficient and widespread public transport systems. Hankering for breakfast in Little India, but want to visit the temples in Chinatown before lunch? No problem, you’ll be there in a jiffy using the sparkling MRT system – and why not stop at Marina Bay for a spot of shopping on your way? Plus, with new metro lines opening practically every two years, this tiny island just keeps on becoming easier to explore.
The concrete jungles that once dominated Singapore’s skyline are slowly giving way to green skyscrapers, which look more like living ecosystems than business hubs. Fervently working towards its ‘City in a Garden’ dream, the nation is ploughing money into becoming more sustainable and, well, green. Head out of town a little and you’ll find plenty of walking trails, treetop jungle bridges, wildlife galore and the city's green jewel, the Unesco World Heritage–listed Singapore Botanic Gardens: these are the lungs of Singapore.

NTU operates using an AU credit system where 4 AU credits equals 1 Deakin credit.
At NTU a full time study load is considered to be a total of 16 AU credits.
A minimum of 6 (8 is recommended) Deakin credits are to be included in your study plan per trimester that you are applying for and for each university preference.
E.g. If you are applying for two trimesters and for two different universities? You would bring 6-8 units for T1 for each university and then 6-8 units for T2 for each university. A total of 12-16 units.
