At SMU, our students have full flexibility to customise their academic pathway and can choose to complete their studies in 3, 3.5 or 4 years, depending on the number of course exemptions they are eligible for and how they plan their courses each term.

If you are curious about how many course exemptions you could be eligible for at SMU, try our simple Exemptions Calculator below to find out.


*For students interested in the School of Law, we regret to inform you that there will be no exemptions for Law studies. As for students with international qualifications, exemptions will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
