STUDENT ADMISSION


It is the University policy to welcome candidates of all backgrounds - age, gender, region etc., who have the ability and motivation to benefit from their intended programs. Mature students whose education was interrupted by the war or who want to pursue a new carrier or upgrade their knowledge are as welcome as young students straight from secondary schools.

Admission Policy

All schemes of study, whether they are degree or non degree courses, offered by the University shall specify the requirements of entry to each in terms of:

(b) pass mark thresholds
(c) knowledge
(d) skills, and competence
(e) standard of English Language or other language competence

Other applicants, including mature students who might have lost their documents during the war, shall be interviewed and/or tested to establish the level of previous education attained. They shall be also required to sit for and pass the University’s entrance examination. If there are more candidates than places available, those with the highest pass mark in the entrance examination shall have preference.
