Admissions

The Programme welcomes applications from GCE 'A' Level students and polytechnic diploma holders. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to sit for a written test and/or interview to assess their suitability for the programme.
 
Undergraduate Admissions
   
The Programme looks out for candidates with strong critical thinking and writing skills. There is no single subject that gives you these skills: you can develop them by studying biology, chemistry, economics, geography, history, language, literature, mathematics, physics, etc – any subject that requires you to think through the material and write about it. In addition, we regard an active interest in current affairs, both within Singapore and internationally, as essential in a Sociology applicant.
 
You need to meet NTU’s general admission requirements, and a good Polytechnic diploma OR strong ‘A’ levels (including a good pass in GP or K&I). If you are a Polytechnic candidate, you’ll need to have at least a pass in GCE ’O’ Level English Language and your other GCE ‘O’ level subjects may be considered. Applicants are assessed on a case-by-case basis, and the division also interviews and administers writing tests for select candidates.
 
Students must satisfy the basic requirements for admission into NTU.
