Overseas Educational Programmes

Summer/ Winter Programmes (SWP)


Introduction

Students can participate in the summer/ winter programmes (SWP) organised by NUS or our partner universities. This is a shorter version of SEP which allows students are able to experience independent life in a different culture for a few weeks. 

Global Relations Office (GRO) recommends a number of SWP offered by reputable universities. Students may refer to http://www.nus.edu.sg/gro/summer-winter.php for more information and application procedures for each individual programme. Alternatively, students can self-source for SWP (i.e. not listed on GRO website) and apply directly with partner university.

For procedures on module mapping and credit transfer, please refer here


Credit Transfer Policy
To qualify for credit transfer, students should seek module mapping approval before they embark for SWP and pass the modules read at partner universities. Credit transfer for FASS students is subjected to FASS MC Exchange Ratio. Students are expected to do their due diligence to calculate the equivalent number of credits their modules are worth and ensure they earn sufficient credits.

As stated on NUS Registrar’s Office website, students may transfer up to:

  1. Maximum of 10MCs for each summer programme (essentially 2 modules) and

  2. Maximum of 5MCs for each winter programme (essentially 1 module)

In addition, students can only transfer a total of 12MCs with fee waiver for up to 2 SWP during their course of study in NUS. Special Term tuition fees will be charged if students wish to transfer more than 12MCs or transfer credits from the third and subsequent SWP they participate. Please refer here for Special Term tuition fees payable.
