Graduate Seminar Module: PR5198

PR5198 (Graduate Seminar Module in Pharmacy) is a compulsory module for all graduate research students in the Department of Pharmacy. With effect from AY17/18 Semester 2, PR5198 will be a graded module. PR5198 is only offered in Semester 2 of each AY and all students have to clear PR5198 by their 2nd semester.

Statistics Module: MDG5108 or SPH5002 (or another level 5000 module)

All students should try to take one level 5000 module on statistics.

  • ModReg@EduRec is the new consolidated module registration platform which will allocate modules to students according to the following rules-based priorities:
    – Curricular needs
    – Seniority
    – Module preference
  • ModReg@EduRec will replace all module registration systems used by individual Faculties and Schools, including the Centralised Online Registration System (CORS).
