NUS offers around fifty undergraduate and eight postgraduate programmes. Each programme is made up of between three and 24 courses. Some programmes are totally prescribed (ie all stated courses are compulsory ) while other programmes allow students to choose at least some of their courses. All programmes have regulations stating what background a student must have in order to be admitted to the programme, whether it is full-time or part-time, how long it takes to complete, which courses are compulsory for the programme and which are electives and so on.

Admission pathways to academic and professional programmes are:

  • for school leavers, by attaining better than certain aggregate scores and scores in specific subjects in Pacific Secondary School Certificate, Samoa Secondary Leaving Certificate or
  • for mature entrants, generally providing evidence of age and relevant work experience.

Admission pathways to vocational and technical programmes are:

  • for school leavers, by attaining better than certain aggregate scores and scores in specific subjects in either Samoa School Certificate or Pacific Secondary School Certificate, Samoa Secondary Leaving Certificate or
  • for mature entrants, generally providing evidence of age and relevant work experience.
