All students must attend this session to finalise their enrolment, receive their class timetable and their student identification card. Student for a Semester students will be treated as university students; however, they will also receive support and mentoring throughout the semester.

Please note: Students must achieve a grade of at least 50% (pass) in their first subject (or 65% for a HSS subject) to be approved for a second subject, at the reduced fee. Please review our Academic Handbook for further policies relating to this program.
