The above table is a guide for reference only. Universities that are not listed will be reviewed accordingly.

  • For students embarking SEP before AY2017/18 Semester 1, to follow the contact hours criteria as follows:
    • For EU universities, 6 ECTS = 4 MCs
    • For other universities, contact hours will be calculated as follows:-
      • Lecture Hours x No of Weeks = Lecture contact hours per semester
      • Tutorial Hours x No of Weeks x 0.66 = Tutorial contact hours per semester
      • Lab/Others Hours x No of Weeks x 0.33 = Lab contact hours per semester

A typical 4MCs NUS module (ME3112) example shown below:

Lecture = 3 x 13 = 39 hours

Tutorial = 0.5 x 13 x 0.66 = 4 hours

Lab = 0.5 x 13 x 0.33 = 2 hours

Total = 39 + 4 + 2 = 45 hours

* Please note that self-study is not to be included in the calculation of contact hours.

  • ME Dept allows student to map a 35 contact hours PU module to a 4 MCs NUS module.
