Graduate Studies at the Department of Malay Studies-NUS
The Department of Malay Studies offers a challenging graduate programme in which the humanities and social sciences are studied in both theory and practice, while the student is given much freedom to develop her/his own interests through research. We offer MA and PhD programmes by research which can be conducted part-time or full time. The research results in a thesis in English or Malay supervised by a staff member and examined by two internationally reputed specialists.
Intake & Scholarships: We welcome applications from qualified candidates for the programmes before 15 November or 15 March each year for intake in the following January and August respectively.
Graduate students are awarded research scholarships on a competitive basis (for a list of scholarships see http://www.nus.edu.sg/registrar/sfau/schemes-gd-scholarshipawards.html). Funding for international conferences and fieldwork is also available for graduate students. The Department is keen on receiving applications from students of various nationalities.
