Exchange Programme (GEM Explorer)


General Guide on what to do before the exchange:

In addition to using GEM/SUSEP portal, you also have to use the following link: "CEE Exchange Programme Course Approval System" for course matching. Your requests will then be forwarded to the respective course coordinator in CEE for matching.

  • For courses offered by other schools, please seek the approval from the respective schools through GEM/SUSEP portal for course matching.
  • Each NTU course can only be matched to one corresponding course offered by the host university.
  • GER-UE course: The School will assess and approve the number of AUs to be transferred based on the number of contact hours taken at your host University.
  • Categories of course: These are listed as Core, Major-PE, GER-PE, UE and the courses in your host university must be tagged to one of the NTU course categories.
  • Course Duration: You must state clearly the number of contact hours for the entire course taken in one semester at the host university.
  • Course Finder: For more information, you should read the FAQs in GEM website on exchange programme and in it you would find courses previously matched by students who have done the exchange. http://global.ntu.edu.sg/GMP/gemexplorer/BeforeApplying/Pages/Course-Planning.aspx
  • Curriculum Flow Chart for CEE/ENE/MS: Students need to follow closely the curriculum flow chart especially to take note of the pre-requisites and the no. of courses that you can take during your exchange. The maximum that you can take is the normal load in your curriculum plus 1 additional course on the corresponding semester that you are on the exchange programme.
  • You need to note that most courses in CEE are offered in one semester only. Hence, you need to plan carefully to ensure that you would be able to complete your remaining courses after the exchange programme so that it is within your degree candidature in NTU.
  • Your planning should also take note of the pre-requisites of some of the CEE courses and the semester in which these courses are offered. This is to prevent timetable clashes and may hinder the progress of your study for course in the senior year which require these pre-requisites.
