Frequently Asked Questions
(1) Is the Evening University (EU) a Full-time degree Programme?
Yes. Degrees in the Evening University are offered as full-time programmes. The EU degree options mirror the content and structure of the day- time programmes, but are delivered on weekdays during the evening hours and on Saturdays (weekdays 5:00 p.m.– 10:00p.m.; Saturdays 8:00a.m. – 8:00p.m.). Students can complete an EU degree from as little as three (3) years to a maximum of seven and one half (7 ½) years.
(2) How many courses can an Evening University Student pursue per semester?
An EU student can read up to four (4) courses per semester . Four (4) in Semester I, four (4) in Semester II and four (4) during the Summer School Session. Though it is highly recommended that students pursue three (3) courses in the Summer period due to time constraints.
(3) Are all courses in Faculty booklets available to EU students?
The core courses outlined in an EU student’s major option have guaranteed availability. Other courses would be made available once they are offered as part of the EU Programme. Availability is also subject to space.
(4) Can an Evening University student pursue a double major or a major with minors?
An EU student can submit a request to the Assistant Registrar Admissions, after consultation with the Faculty Dean, for the option of a double major for programmes offered as part of the EU structure. EU students can also pursue the minor options, once courses within the option are part of the EU course offerings. Please take the opportunity during your academic advising sessions to enquire about the available minor options.
(5) I’ve heard of the Open Campus, how is this different from the Evening University Programme?
The Evening University and the Open Campus are two separate entities. The Evening University is a parallel programme to the day-time degree, diploma and certificate programmes offered on the Main Campus. The EU offers Degrees, diplomas and certificates for working persons, mature individuals and those who could not normally attend classes during the day-time offering.
