3.2.3    Workload

All students are required to read at least 18 MCs every semester throughout their candidature, except during the following semesters when they are allowed to read fewer MCs:

  • the final semester before completion of all graduation requirements for the degree; and
  • the semester in which the students are undergoing industrial attachment or doing their final year projects.

Students who fail to sign up for tutorial/laboratory/recitations for their module(s) will be automatically withdrawn from class. The maximum workload permissible per semester will be subjected to approval by the University and home faculty. For the first semester of study, single degree students can sign up no more than 23 MCs. Students doing double degree or concurrent degree programmes can sign up for 6 modules (and not exceeding 27 MCs) in their first semester of study.
