Non-JUPAS Local Senior Year Admissions - Curriculum Structure

Curriculum Framework


For students admitted to our articulation degree programmes or the senior year curriculum of our 4-year undergraduate degree programmes, they will follow a reduced curriculum (see structure below) and are required to complete a minimum of 60 credits. Some programmes may require up to 75 credits in order to be eligible for graduation. Since students are expected to complete the major study in a shorter duration (normally two years), the option for taking Minor Programme will not be available.
