NTU has launched a university-wide MiniMasters™ to support the endeavours of individuals to build their micro-credentials through Continuing Education and Training (CET). It is also to encourage more working adults to embrace continuous lifelong learning as the economy transforms. 

NTU/NIE alumni may also utilise their alumni course credits to offset the course fees for MiniMasters™ after relevant funding. 

PaCE@NTU collaborate with the colleges and schools, institutes and centres​ at NTU to offer courses in diverse and emerging areas, that are stackable towards a MiniMasters™ certificate, for learners to build and tailor to their learning needs, and to develop skills relevant to the future. 

MiniMasters™ seek to provide working adults and our alumni alternate and flexible pathways to upskill, boost their employability or pursue their intellectual enrichment through a selected range of academic accredited CET courses that can be stacked towards a MiniMasters™ Certificate awarded from an acclaimed University.  

You will be able to choose from a wide spectrum of multi-disciplinary areas offered by NTU’s colleges and schools, institutes and centres to expand your knowledge and skills at your own time and pace, and at the same time remain competitive and improve career-prospect in this fast-growing industry. 

Graduate Certificate​ to MiniMasters​™​ Pathway

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.
