Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy Full Scholarships 2010 for All Nationalities

The two-year Master in Public Policy (MPP) programme provides a strong foundation in conceptual and analytical skills for future public service leaders and individuals with an interest in understanding and influencing how public policy choices are made.

Areas of Concentration
In particular, MPP students deepen their understanding of a specific field by focusing on one of five areas of concentration:

  • Development Studies
  • Economic Policy and Analysis
  • International Relations and Security Studies
  • Social and Environmental Policy
  • Public Management and Governance

Practical Experience

To obtain direct practical experience, students also undertake a public policy or management study, called the Policy Analysis Exercise, for a client in the public, private, or non-profit sector.

Internships

Most students also take internships with organisations that are relevant to their studies, such as the United Nations Environment Programme (Bangkok); National Economic Development Authority (Philippines); World Bank (Washington, DC); Government Investment Corporation (Singapore); and Standard Chartered Bank.

Double/Concurrent Degree Programmes

MPP students can also apply for double degree programmes with Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po). The school also offers double degree programmes with NUS Faculty of Law and NUS Business School.

Students may also complete concurrent degree programmes with the NUS Faculty of Law and NUS Business School. These programmes allow the top students from the Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Business Administration programmes to begin their Master in Public Policy Programme concurrently with the third or fourth year of their law or business studies.
