In the event you are seeking credit for a course or module taken outside the University’s official exchange programme, you need to speak directly with one of the SEP advisors way before enrolling in the course/module as approval is not guaranteed.

Processing Time

Module mapping applications will only be processed in batches at the end of each week and will be given to the coordinator for his/her review. The coordinator may need up to a week to assess applications.

During peak periods such as CORS Bidding Exercise, Exams or when there are Public Holidays, the processing time will take longer.

Mapping of Level 4000 Modules

Please note that PS Majors will only be able to transfer up to a maximum of two Level 4000 modules for their PS Major Requirement. If according to the MC Exchange Ratio, the two Level 4000 mapped modules are worth less than 10MCs, then please contact the FASS Dean’s Office (This email address is being protected from spambots.
