Updated: 20 December 2016

 

ADVICE: For the working adult we recommend a maximum of three (3) courses for the semester and no more than two (2) in Summer

NEW STUDENTS:Students starting the programme in the Academic Year 2016/2017 are required to follow the course sequence for Year 1/Level 1.

Summary
We recommend that you register for no more than 3 courses during the semesters and 2 courses in summer.  
As an adult learner with competing responsibilities for your time, it is very important during your first year working in this online environment that you adhere to the recommendation above to ensure that you do not over-extend yourself and compromise your academic performance. 
Once you have successfully completed your first year in this programme you will be in a better position to determine if you are able to take additional credit hours. 
Your Level 1 courses are very important to prepare you for your Levels 2 and 3 courses.  It is therefore important that you make your first year a success.  
 
Tips

• English Language Proficiency Test (ELPT) - pre-requisite for FOUN1001: English for Academic Purposes.

 Internal Transfer/Continuing Students
  Students, who started prior to the Academic Year 2016/2017, are required to complete their Levels 1 and 2 courses before moving to Level 3.
  Courses being repeated should be taken at the first available opportunity before you attempt to register for courses at the next Level.

   Plan your courses wisely to ensure the successful completion of the courses you register for this academic year. 
  Maintain a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 and above.
