3.2.2.2    Credit & Grade Transfer/Module Exemption

Candidates may apply for credit & grade transfer/module exemption, subject to the approval of the Faculty. Students who would like to request a transfer of credit & grade or seek exemption from taking modules should submit the application(s) within the first semester of study, preferably at the point of admission. Only modules already completed at level 5000 and higher, and relevant to the programme will be considered for possible credit & grade transfer/module exemption. The modules taken must have substantially the same learning objectives, content, and level of sophistication as the corresponding NUS modules from which the student is to be exempted. The modules must have been taken no more than five years before the date of admission. Generally candidates may gain exemption only for NUS level-5000 modules. Level-6000 modules may also be considered on a case-by-case basis. Credit & grade transfer/module exemption is also subject to the following conditions:
