The National University of Singapore (Abbreviation: NUS; ; ; Abbreviated 国大; ) is Singapore's oldest university. It is the largest university in the country in terms of student enrollment and curriculum offered.

The university's main campus is located in southwest Singapore at Kent Ridge, with an area of approximately 1.5 km2 (0.6 square miles). The Bukit Timah campus houses the law faculty, while the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore is located at the Outram campus.

The former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has recently named NUS as the headquarters of his Asian Faith and Globalization Initiative together with Durham University in the UK and Yale University in the USA to deliver an exclusive programme in partnership with Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

The university is considered to be one of the most prestigious universities in Asia. In 2010, the Times Higher Education ranked the university the 34th in the world and 4th in Asia.
