FAQs

How do I enroll?

Do I just enroll to MM in Digital HR just like this?
Unlike traditional programmes which require students to enroll right at the start. MM programmes are modular and flexible, you do not need to commit and sign up for a MM programme per se. This means you get the flexibility to build the programme by "mixing and matching" courses that you want, and then combined the relevant Subject Credits to qualify for the respective MM credential of your interest.

  1. You simply take the relevant courses that best fit your learning objectives from the recommended course guide
  2. Retain records (such as transcript, certificates, application), and
  3. Once you have accumulated 60 Subject Credits from the recommended course guide within 2 years, you can start your application with us for the award of the ModularMaster in Digital HR.

Reach out to our admissions team at sutd_academy@sutd.edu.sg for details.
