Non-Degree Programme

IISEC Non-Degree Programme Overview

The non-degree programme allows admission for non IISEC students to enrol and earn credits if they wish to take individual modules from the list of modules in our degree programme, as long as this programme does not interfere with the education and research of degree course students.
Credits earned as a non-degree programme student may be counted as required credits if you enrol on a degree programme at IISEC.
