Starting school in NTU soon? Here are a few things you should take note of!
1. Basic University Mambo Jumbo
Academic Units (AUs):
Academic Units (or Modular Credits in NUS/credits in SMU) is the measurement of the amount of workload required for that module. Normally a 3AU module usually means that the module has three hours worth of lessons/tutorials in total though there are definitely many exceptions to the rule like lab(3 hours a week but 1AU).
