Students reading modules from the Human Cultures (GEH), Thinking and Expression (GET) and Singapore Studies (GES) pillars can only select a 2nd module within the same pillar from Round 2B, subject to availability of vacancies.  This is to facilitate the completion of the General Education requirements for as many students as possible within the first two years of the candidature.

 For students admitted before AY2015/16

Students should select from the list of GEMs with available vacancies to secure and fulfill their University Level Requirements (ULR). To avoid disappointment, students are urged to select your modules carefully: balancing between preference for a module and the probability of successful enrollment.

Students reading Singapore Studies (SS) modules can only select a 2nd SS module from Round 2B onwards, subject to availability of vacancies.
