Academics

A. Teaching environment

A Prelude
We provide unparalleled learning opportunities for our students. Not only are they taught in the lecture room by academicians who are experts in their fields but our supervision system ensures that these ‘young pupils’ receive more personal tuition from them as and when needed. We are committed to encouraging and developing enquiring minds.

How you are taught?
The university faculty or department arranges lectures, seminars, workshops and practical. However, there is also an emphasis on independent and self-directed study. Each academic year consists of two semesters*. As the terms are short, the pace and volume of work is likely to be greater than you are currently used to.
During each semester, you are expected to spend an average of 44 hours a week on your academic studies (including teaching/contact time and independent study) and you may also need to undertake some work during the vacations (e.g further reading/research, revision, assignments).
Every student adjusts to this new workload in their own way and time and there are plenty of people who can offer advice and support while you get settled in and throughout your degree.

Faculty and intellectual environment

We use a holistic combination of international and oriental teaching pedagogies to ensure all-round excellence. Every programme has its own learning experiences which are shaped by the pedagogy baskets devised by the experienced faculty.

Choice Based Credit System

You have a choice to choose from the prescribed courses, which are referred as core, elective or soft skill courses and the entire assessment is evaluated-based on a credit system.

Lectures

Lectures act as the starting point for your own study and last about 45 minutes. The teacher-pupil ratio is of emphasis. Many lecturers are leading academicians working on the forefront in their fields. And this makes the lectures a fantastic opportunity for the students.

Practical – A Hands-on

Sometimes called ‘labs’ or ‘laboratory classes. practical work on some courses may be assessed. Practical classes provide the students an opportunity to engage deeply with the object of learning thereby escalating the overall learning process.

 Supervisions

  • Supervisions are small group exercises that are organized by the head/faculty.
  • Some preparation in the form of a reading, writing or working on some problems is needed for each supervision. In the session, the students receive feedbacks on the work undertaken by them and are encouraged to speak out their ideas.

 In-depth exploration

This system of personal tuition is one of our great strengths through some of our faculty. In depth exploration provides the opportunity to explore your subject more deeply, discuss your own work and ideas and receive regular feedback on a one to one basis.

Field trips, study visits, language courses

Several courses include opportunities to go on for a field trip, a study visits or for language courses. Naturally where you go, how long for and what you do varies, depending on your course. The visits can be self-financed, partially or fully-financed by the university/others

 Independent research

A chance to carry out your own research, test out theories and put forward your own ideas is encouraged at our campus. Your work might even get published while you are still studying.

 Work experience

Some courses include a period of work experience, giving you a chance to explore potential career paths and possibly leading to the opportunity of a job after you graduate. For specific career avenues, refer to the teaching segment of this prospectus.
