Besides IITs, IISc and PSUs, the GATE score is accepted by foreign universities as well. Among them, the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technical University (NTU) accepts GATE examination score for admissions in postgraduate programmes.
Certain universities in Germany like RWTH Aachen and TU Munich have made GATE score mandatory for Indian nationals to be considered for admission to postgraduate courses.
