*New: Yale-NUS students who go in our semester one or two will do 4 courses and transfer 20 MCs in either semester. This is unlike our policy of 14 MCs for one trimester because in UCL BASC, there is no formal teaching in their third term so a full year’s work load is quite evenly divided between the first and second term.
