Nanyang Technological University

Course Selection


Both undergraduate and graduate students must select ten courses (in order of preference) at the application stage. This is to ensure that you have adequate number of approved courses prior your arrival at NTU.

Course requests will be considered based on prerequisites, availability, vacancies and clashes in timetable. Please note that some NTU courses (eg. Business, Accountancy, Economics, Sociology etc.) are extremely popular and it is not guaranteed that you will be offered the course(s).

Students are strongly encouraged not to deviate from the list of approved courses. Please select courses which are deemed necessary by your home university for your academic progression and the credits can be transfer back to your home university.
