HOST INSTITUTION
NTU is a research-intensive university with globally-acknowledged strengths in science and engineering. It serves over 30,000 students, with approximately 21,000 undergraduates. NTU is a quality university, ranked in the top ten technological universities in Asia with special emphasis on engineering, biosciences, business, communication and computing. Thus, NTU has a relatively narrow focus that is similar to Georgia Tech. 

NTU welcomes exchange students from over 85 countries each year. In 2005, the Times Higher Education ranked NTU the #25 technological university in the world. Its Management program is ranked #1 in Singapore and #3 in the Asia-Pacific region.

HOUSING

Exchange students may live on campus in residence halls with the NTU undergraduates. There are 16 halls of residence which can house a total of 9200 students. Some rooms are double occupancy; others are single occupancy. Some residence halls have a bathroom shared by two rooms; others have communal bathrooms shared by a number of rooms on a hall. Each room includes a high speed internet connection and cable TV connection. All residence halls also organize their own program of activities that is planned and carried out by the students themselves through a residence hall student organization. Upon acceptance as an exchange student, students should apply for on-campus housing through the Exchange Student Portal.  On-campus housing is not guaranteed.
