Compensation of Credits

In the event that a student submits a module mapping which does not meet the minimum credit requirements, the student will have to compensate for the shortfall.

How the compensation works?

  1. Student can take an additional PU module to compensate for the shortfall.
  2. Student can use other modules with over flow of credits to compensate for the shortfall.

However, please note that compensation is only for ME equivalent to ME equivalent modules. Students are not allowed to use UEM or other faculty modules to compensate for the shortfall. All compensations have to be done during exchange, it is not allowed to take modules in NUS to cover the shortfall of credits.
