NUS hall is smaller, like KE7, Raffles.. (excluding PGP). So, you will get to know many people by staying in the hall.

For NTU, I found that the hall is very big, you may not know many people compared to NUS.

Default Uni Life In NUS/NTU/SMU

Hi all. Can the seniors share their experiences in their various unis? Like what's the culture like? How are the teachers there? Are your fellow uni-mates helpful? Lots of homework? Etc etc. It would be helpful to give us juniors an insight into the rigours of uni life. (Which would possibly help us decide which uni to pick.) Thanks in advance!

I think NUS is more exciting only because of the recent article about them streaking at night. Hehehe bu then it only debunks that SMU is hippy, not necessary that NUS is exciting.

I guess when you go where top brains go, and where the top international brains are (just look at their minimum criteria on their websites, SAT 1900 for SMU, 2100 for NUS), you get a good rubbing up on what you will be later.

NTU, is quite quiet. But I like it that they allow students to learn a foreign language free.

In terms of friendliness, NUS students seemed the most friendly among the 3 unis during their open houses. But you can't really judge a uni by its open house.

Oh? Don't all unis allow students to take a minor in foreign languages?

Default Seniors please come share

Hello seniors,
could do guys (and girls) do me a favour by coming up with a phrase or word that describes the university you have attended?
I just want to know the impression of the school that you have attended.
thanks in advance!

That's interesting, care to share your experience? You seem to be from SMU though, are you a transfer student?

I don't think there is a minor in foreign languages in NTU, they are just offered as electives:

There are foreign languages offered in NUS too:
