Credit transfer arrangements

If you've completed previous study our credit transfer options can help you get through your chosen degree that little bit faster. Credit transfer allows you to reduce the number of units required to complete your degree and receive your qualification.


UON has developed a number of credit transfer agreements with Singapore's Polytechnics and overseas institutions. If you have partially or fully completed a diploma or degree qualification at another institution, you may be eligible to gain credit towards your studies at UON.

You can refer to the credit transfer catalogue to find out how many credits you may be entitled to for the specific UON degree/s you are interested in. Some credit transfer arrangement information can also be found on Singapore's Polytechnics website:

  1. Nanyang Polytechnic
  2. Ngee Ann Polytechic
  3. Republic Polytechnic
  4. Singapore Polytechnic
  5. Temasek Polytechnic
