Regulations Governing the Award of the B.Ed. Arts Degree

The College operates a semester system of studies. Each discipline offers a variety of courses, including core courses, which are compulsory to students majoring in the subjects, and Elective courses. Each course is given a credit weighting according to the time devoted to it on the timetable. Fifteen one-hour lectures and fifteen two to three-hour practical classes constitute four credits. Thus, for example, a course consisting of 30 one-hour lectures and 15 three-hour practical classes is a Twelve (12) credits course. Seminars and discussion groups are not counted in the weighting unless they make up more than a third of the total teaching hours in a course.
