    Since September 1972

    Full credit/half credit system such that 1.0 credit is approximately equal to 3 lecture hours per week per session and a 0.5 credit is approximately equal to 3 lecture hours per week per term. Normal full time course load for one session ranges from 4.0 to 6.0 credits.

     

     

    Prior to September 1972

    Course weighting was indicated as hours of lecture per week per session (a full course was normally 3.0, a half course was normally 1.5).

     

  • School of Medicine

     

    Faculty of Health Studies, School of Medicine (Undergraduate Program)

     

    Each Department or Course provides the student with a set of educational objectives at the beginning of the period of instruction together with a description of the evaluation techniques to be used and a criteria-related statement of honours/pass/fail levels. At the end of the period of instruction, a report on the student's standing in each course is made to the Medical School Office in the form of an honour/pass/fail designation together with a narrative description of his/her performance where appropriate.

     

    As of September 2010:

     

    Evaluation is in the form of a pass/fail designation only.  Honours designation no longer granted.
