NTU Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC)
- Application for Transfer of Credits for Freshmen
Freshmen who have passed NTU MOOC taken under the Signature Track in Coursera prior to matriculating with NTU, and have obtained a verified certificate (VC) may apply to transfer the credits earned towards fulfilling the academic unit (AU) requirement of their degree. Freshmen must have completed the MOOC prior to April 2016 and the certificates must have been issued within the last 3 years. Application must be made in the first semester of their enrolment in NTU.
Existing students will have their credits transferred automatically once they are eligible and therefore do not have to apply.
