*All elective modules chosen must be graded and of at least 2MC if it is to be used towards the CAP. Students may choose their elective modules from those offered by the School, Department of Biological Sciences or Research Institutes/Centres affiliated with the National University of Singapore. Students who are interested in clinical or epidemiologic research may also choose their elective modules from the Master of Public Health programme. In addition to the elective modules required of their MSc candidature, graduate students can take their additional electives any time before confirmation as a PhD candidate. They may take Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory modules to widen their knowledge but such modules cannot be used towards the CAP calculation.
