For students heading for exchange starting from August 2016, all module mapping activities have been automated. As soon as you accept the internal offer in EduRec - GE, an automatic email notification will be sent to your student email account once you have accepted the internal offer. This notification informs you that the module mapping worksheet for your exchange partner university (PU) and term has been created for you to submit your module mapping requests. Please do not start the mapping request procedure as yet, as it is far too early.
Please only carry out module mapping procedures after you have received confirmation of registered courses from your PU for the exchange. However if the PU could only confirm the courses at the start of your exchange, it will be prudent for you to start the mapping request procedures no less than 1 ½ months before the start of your exchange.
The module mapping requests generally take about 1 month. In order to aid this process, you should provide the syllabi of the PU courses in your module mapping worksheet. You can download the user guide here. (Please note that this is only for FASS students. Please read the whole document).
Please read the MC Ratio and ensure that you are reading sufficient credits at the PU to merit an equivalent 20 MC workload at NUS. Please note that this is a strict requirement. Please note that a workload of 20 MC may not always means it is mapped to 5 modules. For example, with a study plan of 15 ECTS mapped to major and 15 ECTS mapped to UE and a MC ratio of 30 ECTS = 20 MC, the projected credit transfer breakdown is 10 MC major and 10 MC UE. It still totals 20 MC but you only transfer four modules worth 4 MC each. The other 4 MC will be split into 2 MC in major and 2 MC in UE.
Please note that the departments approves the content of the module and not the MC allocated. MC earned will be based on the MC Ratio.
Please take note of the following:
Students planning to do minor courses while on exchange
Please submit the module mapping worksheet as per the relevant Department who then approve the module(s).
Students who are planning to read modules to fulfil their multi-disciplinary minor requirements will have to check with the module convener via Office of Programmes (OoPs) on the suitability of the PU modules once the discipline- specific Department has approved the module. For example, if you have been approved for a Philosophy related module by the Department, please then write separately to the Office of Programmes (OoPs) for the Religious Studies minor (RS) convener to approve it as counting toward the RS minor.

Students planning to do law and language modules while on exchange
For module mapping of law and language modules, you are required to provide the list of required information in the module mapping request worksheet under the section “Other information”. Please note that incomplete information on your module mapping worksheet will result in the modules being rejected by Law and Centre for Language Studies.
For law modules, please provide the following information:
- How many credits is this course rated in the host University? E.g. 6 ECTS = 4 MC (MC Ratio)
- How many host university credits does your home faculty at NUS require you to do in a semester at the host university? E.g. 30 ECTS = 20 MC
- Which semester and AY are you going or have gone for exchange? E.g. Semester 1, AY2016/17
For language modules, please provide the following information:
- Module description
- Detailed course content
- Course syllabus (progression) and grammar
- Course Structure (number of hours; weekly and total)
- URL to course website or email from course coordinator
