On behalf of the University, the Registry would like to welcome all returning and new students to the new academic year of 2021/22.  The first teaching day for Semester 1, 2021/22, will be on Wednesday, 8 September.  Below are some reminders for your attention:

Teaching and Learning Activities and Final Examinations

  1. All classes and final examinations will be conducted face-to-face on-campus according to the assigned timetables in the scheduled classrooms/venues.  No online classes will be available.

  1. The University will stay vigilant to the pandemic situation and if it worsens, classes may be supplemented with live broadcast or conducted solely online, and examinations may be held in other formats.  Students are advised to stay alert from time to time to the University announcements via email and eCampus.

  1. Students should also take note that there may be modules with practice elements that require on-campus classes regardless of the University-wide teaching mode adopted.  Remarks of such will be made on the respective modules in the Module Planner.

Attendance Requirements
