Subject to your eligibility and the approval of the Head of Programme, credits earned (up to a cap of 30 credit units) from the completion of Graduate CET Modular courses from the suite of Graduate Programmes may be recognised when admitted to the relevant Graduate Programmes.
Students who intend to stack their SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) funded credit-bearing modular courses/certificates towards a graduate qualification (such as Graduate Diploma, Master's, Doctorate) will be accorded credit recognition for up to 50% of the credit units in the graduate qualification. If you exceed SSG's 50% modularisation policy, you may be required to top up the resulting shortfall. Alternatively, you may take up non-funded courses in order to complete the graduate programme.
