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 therefore, you must be prepared that you will not be able to read those highly popular course(s) and be flexible in your study plan.    

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 that you will be able to credit transfer back to your home university.

Note: All incoming exchange students should take at least 50% of courses from the NTU School that they had selected at the point of application. 


Undergraduates (UG)

  • Find the list of Undergraduate Courses here
    You may choose your courses from this list of UG courses available by schools and year of study. Please note the list of restricted programmes and courses not open to exchange students including core Economics modules.
