(A) Information Required when Submitting Module Mapping Requests
Students are required to look at the partner universities' updated syllabus when completing their module mappings. Some universities do not publish the module information on their website, so you are to take the initiative to drop an email to the coordinator in-charge of the module to ask for the descriptions. Students are to look through the syllabus and gauge for themselves if there is at least 70% similarity before submitting the mapping request so that it is a quality request. Students who do not make an effort in mapping will get their mappings rejected.
Please ensure that you include these information in your module mapping request(s):
- Module components
- Mode of assessments and it’s corresponding weightage
- Detailed Module Synopsis
- URL link to the module information (Please do not use URL link to the entire course catalogue from the partner university)
(B) Things to Take Note Of:
1) Please submit your module mapping requests AFTER you have accepted the SEP offer to the partner university.
2) When submitting your module mapping request(s), please ensure accuracy in the submission. These include your partner university’s name and modules’ information. Otherwise, it will be rejected and result to delay in your application for SEP.
3) Please be reminded that incomplete module information will result in inability to map modules as the decision is made based on the information of the module provided.
4) For mapping of SoC Modules, students are to find an actual NUS module for mapping (please refer to (A)). A dummy code will only be issued by the approving authority for an approved module if there are no similar modules from NUS to be mapped to. Students are not allowed to request mapping to dummy codes. Mapping requests to dummy codes will be rejected.
5) You have to ensure that you met the respective pre-requisites for the modules that you intend to map over.
6) You should ensure that mapping is approved before you register for the overseas module(s) especially if credit transfer is imperative. Otherwise you might run the risk of not being able to transfer any credits back if the mapping is not approved.
7) While there is no deadline for submitting mapping requests, please be informed that mapping decisions made are final. Students are not allowed to appeal against academic judgement.
8) Please don't send to other faculty coordinator on your own as each faculty has its own SEP coordinator who will liaise with the respective faculty coordinator for mapping approval.
(C) Processing Time
Please note that module mappings take at least 2 weeks or more for processing. You are to seek approval for mappings before you embark on your exchange. All mapping requests received after your exchange will be rejected.
(D) Modules precluded from Module Mapping
Do note that module mappings are strictly not approved if they are:
- Distance learning courses
- Modules without letter grading (i.e.: with pass/fail grading only)
- Partner Universities that uses European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS): Modules bearing 3 ECTS and below
EC students: IS2150, IS4102
IS students: IS2103, IS3102
BZA: BT3101, IS4240
SOC students (Including CEG students): ITXXXX modules.
Department of Economics: EC1101E, EC1301, EC2101, EC2102, EC2104, EC2303, EC3101, EC3102, EC3303, EC3304, EC4101, EC4102 & ALL EC4XXX
For cohort 2015 and onwards, students are not allowed to map URL requirements for the five pillars (GEHXXXX, GEQXXXX, GER1000, GESXXXX and GETXXXX.)
(E) SOC Pre Approved Module Mappings
You can view SOC pre-approved module mapping list from here.
Please note this list is only an indicative of the mappable module contents, which may not translate to equivalent modular credits to NUS module based on NUS MC Exchange Credit Ratio. In the event, that the mapped module does not bear the equivalence, the School reserves the right for MC adjustment via dummy coded modules at appropriate modular credits during the credit transfer process.
(F) Mode of Submission
Module mapping requests are submitted either online or via email, depending on the type of exchange. Hardcopies are not required. If you are required to submit your module mapping request via email, please name your file for each module mapping request in the following format: Student Name_NUSmodulecode_PU (e.g. Tan Nancy_ST2334_StanfordU.doc) where StanfordU stands for Stanford University. Please indicate in the subject of your email as follows:
Module mapping requests by Student Name for SEP/NOC/Summer Programme
For students going for Summer/Winter Programmes, SEP and SUSEP in AY2016/2017 and onwards
Please submit your module mapping requests (core, electives, ULR or UEMs) via the online Module Mapping Worksheet.
You have to log in to NUS Integrated Student Information System to complete your worksheet. (Navigation path: Self Service > External Study > Module Mapping Worksheet).
Please ensure that you read the Student Guide available on SIS before submitting your mapping requests.
Note: You can only start to submit your module mapping requests AFTER you have accepted the SEP offer to the partner university on NUS Integrated Student Information System.
For students going for NOC Programme
i) Mapping of SoC Modules
Please click here to submit your module mapping request(s) via SOC module mapping portal.
Please ensure that you have met the respective pre-requisites for the modules that you intend to map over.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Module Mappings will not be approved for the below mentioned
EC students: IS2150, IS4102
IS students: IS2103, IS3102
BZA students: BT3101, IS4240
SOC students (Including CEG students): ITXXXX modules
Partner Universities that uses European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS): Modules bearing 3 ECTS and below.
ii) Mapping of modules from Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences (FASS)
(a) Mapping of modules from CENTRE FOR LANGUAGE STUDIES:
Please ensure that the following information are furnished if you intend to map modules from the Centre for Language Studies:
1. Module title and code
2. Module description
3. Detailed course content
4. Course syllabus (progression)
5. Course Structure (number of hours; weekly and total hours of the course)
6. Title of text used and contents covered
7. Grammar content given
8. Whether course is examinable
9. Whether grade is given and reflected on transcripts issued by Partner University
10. URL to course website or email by course coordinator from Partner University where this information can be verified
(b) Mapping of modules from other departments in FASS:
Please be reminded that module mapping requests for the following modules from Department of Economics as module mappings will not be approved:
Note: Do note that you are required to clear EC1101E, EC1301, EC2101, and EC2102 and preferably EC2303 before student go SEP as these are usually the pre-requisites for level-3000 elective modules.
(iii) Mapping of modules from Faculty of Science (FoS)
Note that a separate form is needed for every module mapping request.
(iv) Mapping of modules from Faculty of Engineering (FoE)
(v) Mapping of Other Cross-Faculty Modules (For SoC Students)
(Except modules from School of Computing (SoC), Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences (FASS), Faculty of Science (FoS) and Faculty of Engineering (FoE))
Please send your module mappings to Ms Diana Wong in the following format:
Module Mapping Application Form (SEP, SUSEP, Summer/Winter Programmes and NOC)
(vi) General Education Modules (GEM) or Singapore Studies (SS) modules at Partner Universities
For cohort 2015 and onwards, please be reminded that you are not allowed to map ULR requirements for the five pillars (GEHXXXX, GEQXXXX, GER1000, GESXXXX and GETXXXX.)
(G) Credit Transfer upon Return from Exchange Programmes
You have to read the modules as GRADED in the partner universities in order to have the appropriate credits transferred to your NUS modules. Only modules that are graded in the partner universities can be credited. Pass / Fail options will not be considered. These include modules that only have Pass or Fail grading or students have exercised the option to declare Pass/Fail grade to be reflected on the transcript.
If you do not receive your official transcript* within 2 months after coming back from SEP, you are required to check with the partner university on the status of your transcript. The transfer credits can be effected upon receipt of the official transcript from you.
Credit transfer will be processed based on the approved module mappings received. Therefore, it is important that you complete your module mapping requests before you return from SEP. Please be reminded that appropriate adjustment will be tabulated based on NUS MC Exchange Credit Ratio.
*Note: If you had attended SEP at a university whose language medium is not in English, please request for an English translated copy from the partner university .
Please send to Ms Diana Wong at firstname.lastname@example.org.
