  • The best university in Asia, based on QS rankings. Very well resources and extremely well staffed, with a particular emphasis on academic and research excellence. The most diverse offering in terms of fields of study among the universities in Singapore. Also home to the most complete library of academic and research resources in the NUS Central Library.
