All of the University’s courses are classified into three categories, i.e., lower level, middle level or higher level. Lower-level courses are basic, introductory or foundation courses designed for freshmen. Middle-level courses may require some knowledge of previous study or a certain amount of intellectual maturity. Higher level courses are specialised courses usually designed for those majoring in a particular discipline. The level of a course is indicated by the first digit of the course code, i.e., lower level courses are indicated by the code 1XX/XX, middle level courses by 2XX/XX and higher level courses by 3XX/XX or 4XX/XX. The 2 digits after the slash indicate the credit value of the course. i.e., WLA101/03 is a lower level course of 3 credits while BBM203/05 is a middle level course of 5 credits and TEC305/10 is a higher level course of 10 credits.
