Micro-credentials Pathway to MiniMasters™

While formal recognition of postgraduate education in the form of a Master’s or PhD degree may appeal to some, the majority of working adults may prefer learning through standalone courses. These courses can be taken from NTU Postgraduate (PG) Degree Programmes. Upon successful completion of each course, learners will earn a Statement of Accomplishment, which can be used to stack towards a Graduate Certificate (total 9AUs minimally) and an NTU MiniMasters™  (total 15AUs minimally). Credits earned in these courses may be recognised in its relevant Master’s programme, subject to prevailing University’s guidelines and approval. In addition, learners who wish to transfer their course credits into its relevant Master’s programme must ensure their credits meet the current University’s credit transfer policy as follows: 

  • ​The grade obtained for the course must be at least a C+.
  • The validity period for exemption/ credit transfer of a course is 5 years from the date of award of the course as reflected in the official result slip/transcript.
  • The course must not have been used for exemption/ credit transfer into another programme.
