*Applicants satisfying the admission requirements will be subjected to selection criteria before being admitted into the programme.

 

With proper module planning and academic advice from the respective departments, students in these programmes would be able to fulfil both sets of major and 2nd major requirements without having to extend their candidature beyond the four years required for a single major Honours degree.

For the major/second major/minor requirements, please refer to the respective Department/Programme website

Please refer to our Science Faculty website FAQ for Current Students for the rules on Double Counting of Modules: http://science.nus.edu.sg/undergraduate-studies/ugfaq/faq-current#dblcount [please refer to both 1 and 2]
