- Each department is required to provide detailed information about the structure of courses leading to the award of bachelor’s degrees.
Each student registered at the University is required to be thoroughly familiar with rules and policies of the university and the specific requirements of the bachelor’s degree he/she plans to pursue.
Each student is responsible for ensuring that the courses in which registration is made satisfy the programme requirements of the bachelor’s degree sought.
Each student will be assigned an academic advisor in their department, who will help the student chart their academic progress. It is the responsibility of each student to make periodic appointments with their advisor to discuss their progress.
It is understood that every student, by the act of registration, agrees to abide by all the rules, regulations and policies of the University and of their specific departments.
Departments in which a student is registered

When in doubt, students may make appointments and consult their Academic Advisor, Head of Department, Director of Student Affairs or the Registrar for advice.
Exemption from any of these general regulations may be granted only by express permission of the Academic Board and on the recommendation of a Head of Department.
The university reserves the right to change rules, regulations and policies, as well as programmes and course requirements given in this handbook without prior notice.

One-hour practical instruction
A fulltime student shall be required to carry a minimum workload of 12 credits (four courses) per semester.
