For students who matriculated before AY17/18

In addition, the Singapore Studies Module must be taken in Singapore.  Thus, students planning to spend the whole of Year 2 away from NUS should complete the Singapore Studies Module in Semester 1 or 2 of Year 1, and ACC3601 Corporate Accounting and Reporting in Semester 2 of Year 1.  If necessary, ACC3601 Corporate Accounting and Reporting may instead be completed in Semester 1 of Year 3 together with the 5 pre-assigned modules.

Out of the 15 Foundation Modules, a student must normally have completed at least 10 before going on exchange. Considering the severe scheduling restrictions within the BBA(Acc.) programme, students of good standing may go on exchange if they had completed at least 8 of the 15 modules, plus at least 2 other modules that are required to be taken in Singapore.

The NUS General Education Committee must clear any General Education Module taken on exchange; any Breadth Module must likewise be cleared by the NUS faculty or department concerned.

BBA(ACC) students planning for SEP must read the module sequence before submitting the SEP application.
