Student enrolment at the National University of Singapore (NUS) will now be valid for 20 years from the point of undergraduate admission.
This is part of a new initiative, the NUS Lifelong Learners (NUS L³) programme, to make lifelong learning seamless for NUS students.
Alumni are automatically eligible for this programme as well, according to a press statement released by NUS on Mar 5, 2018.
The move is intended to ensure that NUS graduates have ready access to skills-based, industry-relevant courses necessary for upskilling or reskilling. This will help them remain competitive in the job market, and to enable them to make a greater impact on the future economy.
All current and future students are automatically eligible for NUS’ publicly available Continuing Education and Training (CET) courses upon graduation.
In addition, all of NUS’ 288,600 alumni will also be automatically eligible for publicly available CET courses under NUS L³. They may also stack up selected courses into qualifications such as Graduate Diplomas, or even Bachelor’s or Master’s Degrees.
