STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

The degree student is responsible for knowing all the pertinent content of the UofN catalogue and ensuring that his or her course programme satisfies degree requirements. (Download The Catalogue)

Degree students are encouraged to determine a primary location for their studies, and do two to four courses at one UofN location. This practice provides secure relational and academic continuity for the student pursuing a degree.

Students need to be aware that each credit point is based on satisfactory completion of all requirements for one full learning week for the registered school or seminar. The student is responsible for keeping a record of his or her completed coursework and grades. This record should include documentation of exact dates and locations of both lecture phases and field assignments/practicums/ internships. The student should also keep a photocopy of his or her approved degree planning form. This precaution is a personal safeguard as the student travels from location to location.

Most UofN schools have 12 full learning weeks during the standard school term, yielding 12 credits. If for any reason during the standard UofN term of 12 weeks, a school lecture phase lasts only 11 full weeks, then the student may earn a maximum of 11 credits. If a field assignment/practicum/internship lasts 8, 9, 10 or 11 weeks, then the student may earn a maximum of 8, 9, 10 or 11 credits respectively. In some locations the academic coordinators can arrange appropriate registered seminars of 1-3 credits to be taken following the shorter-than- 12-week school. Therefore 12 credits (e.g. 9+3 or 10+2) could still be obtained during a 12-week period. Students need to be aware that when the school lecture phase or field assignment/practicum/internship phase is less than 12 full weeks long, they must assume the responsibility to plan their programmes with additional credit courses or seminars to fulfill degree requirements.

Code of Conduct:

All students enrolling in the UofN are expected to be committed Christians who aim to glorify God in their lives. As a result, faculty and staff have high expectations for each student. The UofN modular education system demands concentrated study and continuous diligence because the academic content of each course or school is equivalent to several traditional university courses.

The development of Christian character is an integral part of our training and a central ongoing goal of the UofN. Consequently, we expect that the conduct of UofN students will be in keeping with biblical standards.

Any compromise of academic integrity, including cheating and plagiarism, any verified violation of biblical standards or of local community-living guidelines at the location where the course takes place and any violation of the law of the land, including visa and immigration procedures, may be considered grounds for disciplinary action or dismissal.
