MULTI—DISCIPLINARY AND FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM

SMU has a reputation for providing a holistic education, a flexible academic pathway, and an interactive learning environment. What could be more empowering than unrestricted second major options, a chance to express yourself, and the freedom to choose which area of interest you want to specialise in?

Here are some reasons why students love SMU:

300+ double degree and double major combinations

Over 80% of SMU students take a 2nd major. With over 300 second major combinations to choose from, you'll be sure to find something that excites you intellectually. Upon successful completion of the degree programme, your major will be indicated on your transcript.

Guaranteed 2nd major of your choice

You can choose a 2nd major from your school in SMU or from any of SMU's other schools - it is entirely up to you on how you want to curate your academic experience!

Ability to finish your degree in 3, 3.5 or 4 years

If you want to accelerate and complete your undergraduate degree programme earlier, you will be able to do so through exemptions and careful planning. Nonetheless, most SMU students prefer to stay the full four years because they love SMU so much!

Multiple course exemptions available for eligible students

Depending on the subjects/courses you took in high school, you could be eligible for course exemptions at SMU, which means that you can accelerate your studies and save up to a semester or more of time!

100% seminar style learning

There are no huge lecture theatres at SMU. Instead, all students take seminar-style classes set in MBA-style seminar rooms. Comprising no more than 45 students each, the seminars provide a supportive environment where there is strong professor-student interaction, fostering open discussions and the exchange of ideas.

Flexibility in designing your own class schedule

SMU's unique class bidding system gives your freedom to customize your class schedule. Whether you're an early riser who prefers morning classes or a night owl who learns better in the evening, you'll be able to create a class schedule that works for you, and gives you time to pursue your co-curricular interests as well.

Direct meritorious honours for all SMU undergraduate programmes

All six schools at SMU offer a direct meritorious honours programme.
