oral/written exam etc.):
Students are required to attend all classes. (Active participations are required during the lessons).
Home work (essay) and written exam.
Lecture is a form of tuition where either the whole spectrum of a specific subject or part of it is presented simultaneously to all students
attending the relevant course unit, (characteristically, this means all students or a group of students in the same year). Attendance at lectures is
an integral part of acquisition, albeit no administrative measures can be taken for students to actually attend them. On the other hand, assessment
of student performance shall encompass knowledge based on lecture material.
Practical course is a form of tuition where the aim of a course unit is to consolidate the skills aspect of acquisition. As for some course units,
lectures and practical courses have a complementary role to play in the process of tuition.
Absence from course units whose attendance is compulsory is acceptable up to 20 per cent of contact hours in those course units. Absence from over
fifty percent of contact hours shall lead to that unit having to be redone to fulfil course unit requirements. Absence from over 20 percent but less
than 50 percent of contact hours in a course unit shall lead to an obligation to make up for contact hours missed, the conditions of which shall be
specified in the departmental Course Requirements Guide. STUDENTS CAN MISS 2 SEMINARS AT MOST!
The subsequent obtaining of an end-of-semester mark/mark for student participation and subsequent assessment following the receipt of a ’fail’ mark
is confined to two assessment days during the examination period. An unsuccessful retake shall entail the student’s obligation to do that course
