For NTU-H3 Molecular Biology, the lectures, tutorials, and laboratory sessions will be conducted at the facilities within the School of Biological Sciences, NTU.
For NTU-H3 Semiconductor Physics & Devices, the lectures and tutorials will be hosted at Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) while the laboratory sessions will be held at the laboratories within NTU.
All lectures, tutorials, and laboratory sessions are compulsory. Any absences must be supported with a medical certificate (MC) or an official letter of excuse from the student's school. CCA practices, school events, supplementary and remedial lessons are not valid reasons to request for a leave of absence.
Pre-requisite: H2 Biology
Preclusion: This course cannot be offered together with MOE H3 Biology
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY focuses on the areas of Biomolecules and Recombinant DNA Technology.
Biomolecules explores the 3-dimensional structure of biomolecules and offers insights into forces that govern their structure and functions. Students will learn to assess databases and software to analyse and to visualise the 3-D structures of biomolecules.
Recombinant DNA Technology introduces modern biotechnology concepts and methodologies, which includes DNA/protein manipulation and analysis, mass spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Students will also be introduced to biomedical technologies such as stem cell research, as well as the generation of knockout/transgenic animals.
The course will be conducted through lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions (computer & wet-laboratory).
Assessment will be based on the following components:
Semiconductor Physics & Devices
Pre-requisite: H2 Physics
Preclusion: This course cannot be offered together with MOE H3 Physics
SEMICONDUCTOR PHYSICS & DEVICES is designed to stimulate students’ interest and broaden their educational experience in Science and Engineering. It is intended for students wishing to pursue deeper studies in Physics and Semiconductors.
Students enrolled in the course will learn the theories and properties of semiconductors, and the physics and operating principles of semiconductor devices. Hands-on laboratory sessions on semiconductor materials and devices will be provided to supplement the learning of the course. Students will also acquire an understanding and appreciation of the evolution of semiconductor technologies and the driving force behind its convergence.
The course will be conducted through lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions.
Assessment will be based on the following components:
The course fee payable per student after the deduction of the MOE grant is $60. Students will be informed of the payment procedures by their school.
The application outcome will be released through the H3 School Coordinators.
Students accepting the offer must confirm and submit the completed NTU-H3 Taught Module Acceptance Package to their H3 School Coordinator by the stipulated deadline.
Students rejecting the offer are to inform their H3 School Coordinator of their decision by the stipulated deadline as well.
Students who wish to withdraw from an NTU-H3 Taught Module must complete and submit the MOE H3 Withdrawal Form to their H3 School Coordinator. Please take note of the withdrawal schedule and the corresponding penalty(s).

The application for the NTU-H3 Taught Modules will open in October each year.
2) Who is eligible to apply for the NTU-H3 Taught Modules?
Application is open to JC1 and Year 5 students. Do check with your H3 School Coordinator if you meet your school's criteria to offer an H3 subject.
3) What are the criteria for selection?
4) Can I appeal if my application for an NTU-H3 Taught Module is unsuccessful?
You can submit your appeal through your H3 School Coordinator. You need to provide a short justification to support your appeal. Do check with your H3 School Coordinator for more details. NTU will review the appeal and release the appeal outcome through your H3 School Coordinator.
5) When is the official start of instruction date for the NTU-H3 Taught Modules?
Each run of the NTU-H3 Taught Modules will start in January.
6) When are the lessons for the NTU-H3 Taught Modules?
During the application period, please refer to the Programme Overview for the important dates and times. The finalised timetable will be made available to the students offering an NTU-H3 Taught Module in the first week of January.
7) Can I withdraw from an NTU-H3 Taught Module?
Yes, you may withdraw from an NTU-H3 Taught Module. Do consider it carefully before making the decision. If you decide to withdraw, you need to complete and submit the MOE H3 Withdrawal Form to your H3 School Coordinator. Please take note of the withdrawal schedule and the corresponding penalty(s). Once NTU processed your withdrawal, this action is irreversible.
8) Who should I contact should I require more information?
Your first point of contact should be your school’s H3 School Coordinator. Alternatively, you may email us at TalentOutreach@ntu.edu.sg.
