Exchange students will choose courses from the ‘list of available modules’ open to Non-graduating students available through the Non-graduating programme website. Courses can be of 1000, 2000, 3000 or 4000 level and are recognizable as such by their course code. Courses with a 5000 or 6000 course are graduate courses. Courses with the prefix BMC, BME and BMU are not open to exchange students. This includes the courses of the Faculty of Medicine. Please refer to the Non-graduating programme for more details on module restrictions.
USP courses are not listed in the ‘list of available modules’, students can apply for USP modules after arriving in NUS with USP directly.
Students are advised to read the online guide on modules selection and application before applying for the exchange at NUS.
In general, the first number in the module code indicates the year of study, except for general electives modules with prefix GEHXXXX, GEQXXXX, GERXXXX, GESXXXX, or GETXXXX. Majority of the general elective modules do not have pre-requisites.
Exchange students are required to read a minimum of 12 modular credits (MCs) per semester (approximately 3 modules) and no more than 20 MCs (approximately 5 modules), regardless of whether these modules are set to audit or examinable.
