    PLACEMENT TEST

    A screening test is to be administered to determine students' command of English during the first week of their arrival.

    The test will help the faculty to know more about the students’ proficiency levels and allow the teaching staff to strategize their teaching materials and approaches accordingly.

    The result of the screening test cannot be used as an entry fulfillment to the academic programme offered at the university or to get exemption from any module in the IELP.

    Ideally, students who want to excel in a programme should have a minimum English requirement of Band 4.0 (IELTS). However, students who want to come with lower results can still pursue their studies with the condition that they attend and complete the required English proficiency levels offered by the faculty.

    Undergraduate students who have successfully completed the Intensive English Language Programme will be taking two compulsory generic English courses during their undergraduate studies while postgraduate students will be offered optional courses on thesis writing and presentation of research projects upon completion of this programme.
