Course Matching

What courses need to be matched?
SSM core courses, core electives, GER-Core, GER-PEs and any other courses to fulfill a minor. Students are to research on the host university's course descriptions and propose appropriate matches with NTU courses. A perfect match may not be possible but students are to exercise prudence in deciding if the basic concepts are covered.

Students must propose their matched courses online (in Studentlink). GER-Core, GER-PEs and any other courses to fulfill a minor can be proposed online for approval by other school coordinators.

GER-PEs and UEs need not be matched with NTU courses.
