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 professionals 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. 

CET Learners may choose to read these courses as credit course or non-credit course. If Learners attend the course as non-credit, he/she is required to pass a basic assessment to demonstrate understanding of the content. Learners will still attend the course sessions and have access to course materials.

For Learners taking the course as credit course, there will be continuous assessments during course period and a final exam/quiz/assignment at the end of the course which contribute to a final grade.

Learners will indicate their choice at the point of application.


MiniMasters™ seek to provide working professionals 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 professionals 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 and an NTU MiniMasters™. MiniMastersTM will only be awarded to learners attaining a minimum of 15 Academic Units (AUs) with each course of minimum GPA 2.5 (which is equivalent to a letter grade of C+) and above. Learners attaining a minimum of 9AUs with each course of minimum GPA 2.5 and above will be eligible for Graduate Certificate. 

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.
