From AY2006/07, candidates may be admitted to one of two study tracks which are catered to candidates with different levels of qualifications. Students who did not major in mathematics at the undergraduate level would normally be considered for admission into Track 2 (80MC programme).


TRACK 1 (40MC PROGRAMME)

An applicant must have:
  • an Honours degree in mathematics or an equivalent qualification, or
  • an Honours degree in a discipline with strong training in mathematics at university level.

TRACK 2 (80MC PROGRAMME)

An applicant must have:
  • a three-year Bachelor's degree in mathematics or an equivalent qualification, or
  • a three-year Bachelor's degree in a discipline with strong training in mathematics at university level.

OTHER REQUIREMENTS (FOR BOTH TRACKS)

  • An applicant whose native tongue or medium of undergraduate instruction is not English must complete the TOEFL, IELTS, or Diagnostic English Test (DET) administered by the NUS Centre for English Language Communication.
  • An applicant with a non-mathematics background is required to take the GRE Subject Test (Mathematics).
  • Foreign applicants are not allowed to study part-time in Singapore unless they have a valid employment pass to work in Singapore.

Interested applicants should sit for the required tests early, bearing in mind that there may be specific test dates and the test results may take a few months to reach the university. Our institution/department code is 9087/72 for TOEFL and 0677/0703 for GRE.
