Advanced Placement Credits (APCs) for Local Diploma Holders

The BSc (Nursing Practice) programme consists of 120 module credits (MC). It permits exemption of a separated set of 40 MCs granted to students who have completed a polytechnic nursing diploma from Singapore (comprising 20 MCs for Unrestricted Elective Modules and 20 MCs for Programme Requirements). The APCs will be granted only for the diploma completed within the last five years prior to the date of admission to NUS. If the student had used his/her Diploma in Nursing from NYP or NP to count towards the award of a non-Nursing degree prior to applying for this part-time Nursing degree, he/she may not be granted APCs. The programme, ultimately after the APC, stands at 80 MCs.
