Double degree

Places in the double degree programme are limited. As such, keen competition is expected. To be eligible for direct entry into the double degree programme, applicants must have excellent academic results. Students aspiring to do a double degree at the School of Law must be offered admission into the Law programme. Admission into the double degree programme will be decided by the School of Law.

Freshmen who are offered direct entry into the double degree programme are deemed to be provisionally enrolled. Provisionally enrolled students will be required to fulfill the stipulated double degree requirements by the end of their year 2, failing which they will be asked to withdraw from the double degree programme and pursue a single degree. Therefore, direct entry does not guarantee enrollment as a double degree student for the duration of the studies at SMU. Subject to availability of double degree places, freshmen who are not offered direct entry into the double degree programme may enroll as single degree students and will be eligible to apply for the double degree programme at the end of their first year if they have done well in SMU, fulfill stipulated course and GPA requirements, and must be deemed to be able to complete the double degree programme within the normal candidature period of four years.
 

The expected duration is 4 years for non-Law double degree students. Law students who are enrolled in a double degree programme will complete the programme in 5 years.

With the exception of students on the Lee Kong Chian Scholars' Programme, other double degree students may withdraw from their secondary degree. Before withdrawing from the double degree programme, you should seek advice from your school on how to fulfill the remaining academic requirements of your primary degree. Students on the Lee Kong Chian Scholars' Programme are required to enroll in the double degree programme.
