Senior Year Entry
Students admitted to Year-two or Year-three of a SYU programme can be exempted from taking a certain amount of required graduation credits. Therefore, applicants should possess a qualification which is relevant to their choices of programmes. The University welcomes students who are studying the final year or a graduate of a locally accredited Associate Degree or Higher Diploma programme, or who have completed the first year or second year study of a locally recognized bachelor programme to apply for this faster track.
