  • Polytechnic Graduates
    You may be granted an exemption for a relevant first-year course related to the Diploma you have obtained. Note that only Diplomas listed in  Annex A are allowed exemptions. 

Nanyang Business School students transferring from other programmes can seek exemptions and credit transfers for similar or relevant courses covered in their previous programme of study.  

Students transferring from other universities should submit an  Exemption Request Form together with their degree audit/transcript, and detailed outline of the course(s) via email to  NBS Student Admin for review and consideration.

If you opt for an exemption, you:

Exempted courses do not count towards your Grade Point Average and have no bearing on the classification of the honours that you will be awarded.

If you are eligible for a core course exemption, you do not have to take up the offer. For example, you may prefer to read the course at the undergraduate level as a useful refresher of the higher-level courses. In which case, no action is needed on your part. Simply attend the course as scheduled in your timetable.
