NOTE:

1 GER-PE consists of courses in these 3 categories of studies - BM, STS, LA,  There is also a 4th category called GER-PE (Any) which allows selection of any courses from the 3 categories.

2 2nd Major in FST consists of 33AUs, of which 18AUs are core courses from WU, and 15AUs are a selection of PE courses from NTU. All courses are categorised  as Unrestrictive Electives (UE).

3 18AU of course exemption, i.e. 3AU from GER-PE (Any) category and 15AU from UE category can be exempted to count towards the completion of the FST Major.

4  18AU of course exemption,

 - For students under PI Option; 3AU from GER-PE and 15AU from UE category can be exempted to count towards the completion of the FST Major.

 - For students under the PA Option; 4AU from Core, 3AU from GER-PE and 11AU from UE category can be exempted to count towards the completion of the FST Major.

5  CH9200 Food Microbiology will be used to satisfy the requirement of PE-STS.

+ For Students with no 'A' Level Physics.

NTU-FST Prescribed Electives Courses

1) Once an elective course is read and passed as Major PE or UE, students are not allowed to read a course again for another course type

2) S/U option is not allowed for the Second Major in FST Programme. For more information, please refer to: http://www.ntu.edu.sg/Students/Undergraduate/AcademicServices/CourseRegistration/Pages/satisfactoryUnsatisfactory.aspx

3) For courses with pre-requisites, FST student are required to email for pre-requisite waiver from the course coordinator. Upon approval, forward a copy of the approved email to your School, the School administrator will provide n e-stamp for pre-requisitie(s) waiver which will allow you to add NTU-FST PE course to your STAR

4) For FST students considering to read NTU-FST PE course for their overseas exchange, you are required to email the offering School for course matching clearance and approval.
