This programme is to encourage NUS Alumni to embrace lifelong learning.

As an Alumnus, you are able to study a maximum of 2 modules under this programme. However, during each semester, you will be offered only one module if you are successful in your application.

Existing pre-requisites may apply for modules taken for credit. If you do not have the pre-requisites but do have relevant work experience, please do provide such information to support your application.

No fee is chargeable in the first year of offer for this initiative. However, with effect from August 2018, a Student Services Fee is payable per semester but only upon acceptance of admission offer. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. No other fees will be charged.
At present, Student Services Fee is as tabulated:

Student Services Fee S$261.85

The University reserves the right to review fees as necessary and adjust accordingly without prior notice.

Unless you opt for the audit option, all modules will be graded based on the assessments conducted for the module. At the point of offer acceptance, you may elect to audit the module. Once you elect to audit the module, you will not be able to reverse the status to graded.

Yes, you can and you have to indicate your choice when you are accepting your admission offer. However, do note that there are modules where the graded arrangement is compulsory for all students. Such information will be indicated on the module listing.

Auditing a module means:

  • You are not completing any assignments/tests and sitting for the final examination for that module
  • There will be no seat allocated to you during the final examination
  • You will not get a letter grade shown for the module in your transcript. An ‘AUD’ grade will be shown instead, indicating that you have audited the module.

Advanced placement credits (APCs) or exemption may be granted for the modules taken and passed. More information on APCs and exemptions can be found at:
