NUS SCALE offers several certificate programmes on a wide range of subjects. Each programme comprises a series of short courses. These short courses reflect the SkillsFuture Series of emerging skills, giving you the assurance of the applicability and relevance of the skills taught. Learn in a flexible and hands-on way, and build up your knowledge and skills systematically. Upon completing the requisite courses, you will earn a recognised NUS certificate.

NUS Professional Certificates comprise six to seven days of short courses through which you will acquire depth of knowledge, and be skilled in both the theoretic and practical aspects of a subject area. To earn an NUS Professional Certificate, you should complete the requisite short courses within 12 months.
