Categories for Academic Courses

  • Major Courses

The major courses are the compulsory courses in the student’s main area of study. Required ancillary courses are compulsory courses in the student’s main area or related area of study, while electives are courses within or outside the student’s main area of study which may be stipulated as compulsory or non-compulsory/optional.

The program operates course credit system, under this system; departmental programs are drawn up in such a manner that courses are arranged in progressive order of importance and intensity and assigned weights called credit units. Each course carries 1, 2, 3, 4, or more units to be minimum 30-taught unit and examined at the end of the course within one semester.

A pre-requisite course is a one that must be taken and passed before any student is allowed to register for another course, usually a more advanced one to which that the course is pre-requisite. Usually, pre-requisite courses are so designated, but in general , courses at lower level are considered as pre-requisite for the courses at higher levels within the same programme.

In our online system, students are not normally allowed to register for higher level courses than their year of study allowed except where their academic programs allow for such in the layout. Academic programs are not changed or reviewed mid-way through the course. Any approved program shall be allowed to remain in force for the duration of the course and until the set of students registered under the program have graduated.

The teaching and research facilities, staff needs, teaching methods, programs innovations, and student’s performance in the department are reviewed and examined periodically.
