Yale-NUS College

SingaporeHistory

Yale-NUS College is a liberal arts college in Singapore. Yale-NUS was established in 2011 as a collaboration between Yale University and the National University of Singapore. It is the first liberal arts college in Singapore and one of the few in Asia. The first class, the class of 2017, consisted of 157 students entering in 2013. Over several years, the college intends to increase its student body to 1,000 students and its teaching faculty to 100.

Admission to the inaugural class began in 2012 and took place over four rounds, with an acceptance rate slightly below 4%. According to Yale-NUS College, the yield for the class entering in 2013 is 52%. About 60 percent of students at Yale-NUS are Singaporeans and 40 percent are international students. In 2013, the admission rate dropped to 3% and the demographic remained consistent. Apart from Singapore University of Technology and Design, Yale-NUS is the only other college in Singapore to follow a holistic admissions process similar to that followed by Yale and other American universities. Yale-NUS students are granted either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree by NUS. The college currently offers 15 majors. It is the first institution outside New Haven, Connecticut, that Yale University has developed in its 300-year history, making Yale the first US Ivy League school to establish a college bearing its name in Asia. Like both Yale and NUS, Yale-NUS follows a need-blind admission policy and offers financial aid on a full-need basis. Yale-NUS also distributes scholarships to some admitted students based on academic merit.

The college's motto is "A community of learning, founded by two great universities, in Asia, for the world" and this phrase has been painted on a central wall at the temporary campus on the NUS grounds.

The project has been criticized by members of the Yale faculty and alumni concerned that the relative lack of political freedom and restrictions on speech and protest in Singapore would negatively impact the rights of students. Singapore laws ban the formation of political parties or branches of political parties on university campuses, including at Yale-NUS. Some initial students and faculty have cited the establishment and prominence of various independent student societies, such as an LGBT advocacy organization, as evidence the Singapore government does not intend to interfere with student affairs. The Yale-NUS library contains literary works which are banned elsewhere in Singapore, and in 2014 the college sought to show the banned film To Singapore With Love, however, the film's director did not agree to the screening.

The Singapore Management University School of Law (SMU School of Law) is one of the six schools of Singapore Management University, and Singapore's second law school. The school is headed by Professor Yeo Tiong Min, Singapore's first Honorary Senior Counsel. The Advisory Board is chaired by Lucien Wong, Chairman and Senior Partner of Allen & Gledhill LLP. The school offers a four-year undergraduate single Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree programme, and a five-year double degree programme combining the law degree programme with one of SMU's existing non-law programmes: accountancy, business, economics, information systems, or social sciences. The school also has a full-time two- to three-year graduate Juris Doctor (JD) programme, and offers a Master of Laws (LLM) with specialisations in Commercial Law, Dispute Resolution, and Islamic Law and Finance.

The school took in 90 students in AY 2007, reaching a steady-state intake of 120 from AY 2008 onwards. Admission to the law programme is competitive. About 700 applicants out of 1,000 applicants who apply each year are shortlisted for an interview and a written test, with only about 120 admitted each year. In 2012, 115 places were taken up. It is likely that the school would revise its annual intake of undergraduates upwards to 180 undergraduates annually in the next three to five years, starting from AY 2013.

SOSS is the smallest school in SMU in terms of enrolment, and is often considered the most tightly knit community in SMU. It is often referred informally within SMU as the "SOSS family" by faculty members and undergraduates.

SOSS graduates typically fare better than other Social Sciences graduates who attempted a comparable programme offered by NUS or NTU. Employment statistics published by the Ministry of Education consistently reported that SOSS graduates with a *!? Laude and above earn a higher median gross monthly salary than their counterparts from NUS or NTU, and are on par with their counterparts from the SMU Lee Kong Chian School of Business.

SOSS graduates fared well in admission to postgraduate education as well, and have been accepted in a wide range of Masters and PhD programmes in prestigious universities, including at the University of Oxford, Harvard University, London School of Economics, Erasmus University, Princeton University and Columbia University.

SOSS has also hosted distinguished academics such as Professor Ezra Vogel of Harvard University, Professor Elizabeth Perry of Harvard University, Professor John Ikenberry of Princeton University, and Professor Huang Yasheng of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, giving SOSS students the unique opportunity to tap the minds of these respected thinkers.

SOSS hosts an annual Social Sciences Conference for pre-university students in Singapore, which inaugurated in 2012. The Social Sciences Conference is a student-led event, where over 250 students from various pre-university institutions visit the SMU School of Social Sciences campus to attend interactive seminars and dialogues with SOSS faculty members, undergraduates, and industry leaders.
