Course Unit Selection
A minimum number of five students should be registered to take a particular course unit before it can be offered by a Department/Unit.
There are three important options you need to consider when selecting CUs.
(i) Do you want to read for a three-year degree in Arts (Study Streams) ?
(ii) Do you want to read for a four-year Special degree in Arts majoring in one subject ?
(iii) Do you want to read for a Bachelor of Education degree (BEd) which belongs to the four-year degree category with Education as the major in the final year of study?
Selection for Study Streams/Honors/BEd Degree
Once you have decided on the desired study programme, you must be aware of the rules and regulations provided in the By-Laws of the Bachelor of Arts Degree Programme that govern the conduct of the CUs. One such important regulation is the minimum number of credits mandatory for a student to complete in each academic year.
Minimum Credit Requirement (MCR)
|Year of Study||MCR|
|1st Year in Arts||30|
|2nd Year in Arts||30|
|3rd Year in Arts||30|
|4th Year in Arts||30|
The decision on how to distribute CUs between two semesters is entirely up to each student, depending on the timetable and on the availability of course units. However, the maximum number of CUs that a student may offer in a semester in any combination (current/repeat/incomplete) is seven.
