Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Option for Language Modules

From Cohort 2014 onwards, students are eligible to exercise the S/U option for all levels of language modules regardless of whether the modules will fulfil their major or UE requirements.

Offer of Spanish Modules by Yale-NUS

The Centre for Language Studies has reached an agreement with Yale-NUS College for a limited number of places in its Spanish module to be offered to FASS and cross faculty students (Year 1 to 3). Yale-NUS College is the provider of this module. Students can bid for YLS1201 through Mod. The module description and timetable can be found here. FASS students can only count Spanish modules towards their UE requirements.  Hence, they may exercise the S/U option for this module if they have not reached the maximum S/U limit applicable to their cohorts.
