The programme requires every student to earn a total of 30 academic units (AUs) in order to graduate. Students may earn 27 AUs from coursework and 3 AUs from an Applied Research Project (eligible for students with a GPA of 4.5 and above) or earn all 30 AUs from coursework.
The AUs from coursework will be earned from reading a combination of half and full courses. A full course carries 3 academic units (AUs), while a half course carries 1.5 AUs. Typically, a student will read three full courses per trimester. Students who are not eligible to take Applied Research Project (ARP) are required to read one extra full course or two half courses in Trimester 2 or Trimester 3.
The courses offered will depend on the availability of faculty, and wherever possible we will take into account the interests of students.
