Double Degree Programmes

NUS Double Degree Programmes (DDPs) allow students to graduate with two different degrees in two disciplines from the same Faculty/School or two different Faculties/Schools within NUS. A Double Degree allows some modules taken to be double counted towards the requirements of both degrees, thus enabling the student to complete the two degrees in a shorter period than it would take to complete both degrees separately.

For students admitted prior to AY2021/22, the minimum requirement for a Double Degree is 200 modular credits (MCs) or 5 years of study for double Honours, and 180 MCs or four-and-a-half years of study for single Honours. For students admitted from AY2021/22 onwards, the minimum requirement for a Double Degree is 160 MCs or 4 years of study.

Faculties/Schools have identified certain prohibited combinations for student-initiated DDPs. Hence, when putting together their own Double Degree combinations, students should always verify permissible combinations with their Home Faculties/Schools before embarking on one.

There are also specially designed DDPs developed by Faculties/Schools. These are:

Please also refer to the section, Double/Concurrent/Joint Degree Programmes with Overseas Universities, for the available DDPs with partner universities.

For more information on DDPs, including admission process and criteria, please click on the FAQ. Students are advised to seek proper advice from their academic counsellors in planning their modules as early as possible in their candidature. Successful DDP students will be conferred two separate degrees, with each degree classified according to the CAP for the respective modules. Both sets of CAP and the two degrees will be noted on the student's transcript.
