B.Sc. With Half - units

B.Sc. With Half - units

Science Reporter

Half-Units for advanced stages in science courses have been approved by the University Council.

Some Stage II and III B.Sc units will be divided into half units which can be taken and passed separately.

The aim is greater flexibility in science degree courses. The half-unit scheme will enable science students to support their majoring subject with relevant units from other subjects.

It will also provide an opportunity for specialisation within subjects.

Measures have been taken to prevent both overspecialisation and fragmentation of degrees.

No stage I units may be split into half-units, no student may enrol in a half-unit until he has passed two units, and the maximum permissible number of half-units in a degree is four.
