IMPORTANT! Notice on General Education Modules (GEM)

In AY2018/2019 Semester 2, students reading GEH, GET and GES modules can only select a second module within the same pillar/same group from Round 2B, subject to availability of vacancies.

 

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

 

For Cohort AY2014/15 and before ONLY

Students from these cohorts who wish to read GEM/GEK/SS modules which are double-coded with GEH/GES/GET may submit an appeal under the appeal type “M018 Request for double-coded GEM/GEK/SS module” from Round 2A to 3B.
