Students on the BSc (Project and Facilities Management) programme can enrol in the University Scholars Programme (USP). Details on application and updates on the USP can be found at: http://www.usp.nus.edu.sg

Students who have not passed or been exempted from the Qualifying English Test at the time of admission to the University must take additional English modules (depending on their QET results), in their first level of study. More information on this can be found on: http://www.nus.edu.sg/celc/programmes/qet.php 

Length of Degree Programme

The programme is designed to allow students to progress at their own pace. Students who are able to progress at a faster pace can complete the programme in three-and-a-half years if they take additional foundation modules in semester two of their Second and Third Levels. Those doing the programme at a regular pace should complete it in four years.

Assessment and Examination

Students are assessed on a mixture of class work and end-of-semester examinations for each module they had registered for in the semester. Continuous Assessment (CA) may be in the form of essays, laboratory work, projects, reports, or tests. Students’ performance during tutorials may be assessed as part of the CA.

Students who fail in a foundation module have to retake the foundation module the following year. For a retaken module, students have to attend lectures and tutorials and complete assignments and examinations. A new CA grade has to be obtained.

Students who fail a non-foundation module may either replace it with a new module or retake the failed module the following year. There is no limit to the number of times a student may retake the same non-foundation module.

Students who have passed any module are not allowed to retake the module to improve their grades.

Progression of Students

Please see the table below:

Minimum MCs (in general) for promotion to the next level PFM1 -> PFM2 [>=40 MC]
PFM2 -> PFM3 [>=80 MC]
PFM3 -> PFM4 [>=120 MC]

Graduation Requirements for four-year BSc (Project and Facilities Mgt) (Hons) Programme

Students have to take all foundation modules offered in the semester to which they have progressed, provided they have passed the relevant prerequisites. In addition, they may take modules to satisfy University and other requirements. To graduate, a student must obtain a minimum of 160 MCs in accordance with the requirements shown in Table 1. ‘Fulfilling’ Modular Credits means reading and passing the modules which carry the Modular Credits.

Advanced Placement Credits

Polytechnic diploma holders admitted to the programme may be granted advanced placement credits (APCs) for relevant modules. This is subject to Departmental consideration, given the wide range of subject modules from the polytechnics.

For up-to-date APCs list, please refer to:
