Students are expected to plan ahead for their DYOM journey (i.e., before the start of a semester), especially if they wish to customise their module(s). Once the group and their supervisor agree on the modular details, assignments, projects, and assessment, the proposal form should be submitted to the respective Dean’s Office during the application period for DYOM (Group), as indicated on the DYOM index page.
Students must note that once a DYOM has been added to their record in EduRec by the host department (for Option B), any de-registration or dropping of the module could have an implication on their academic record (e.g., “W” grade, etc.).
For DYOM via MOOCs (Option A), please note that most of these online courses are self-paced courses, so they would not have implication on a student’s workload (that is, the semestral workload limit is not relevant after ModReg Round 3).
On EduRec, please note the request for credit transfer and reimbursement could be submitted in one application upon completion of MOOCs. Only credit-bearing MOOCs will be processed.
Please be informed that upon successful approval of the application, disbursement will be made to the Student Account in EduRec 5 days later. Refund to a receiving bank account may only be processed once a month, on the last working day of each month. Students may look out for their refunds in their bank accounts 2 weeks after the last day of the month. EXAMPLE: If a student’s DYOM payment is reflected in EduRec as DYOM payment in Sep 2020, his refund will be processed on 30 Sep 2020, and he will receive the refund by 14 Oct 2020. It is important for a student to maintain receiving bank account in EduRec, to receive the reimbursement. For more details, please visit Finance’s website:
