The purpose of offering elective courses is to ensure student had holistic learning experiences. The knowledge presented not only complements the core courses but also introduce student to wider input of academic applied disciplines. Attention is also given to enhance students’ analytical, communication and leadership skills.
The school encourages students to freely select any of the courses offered. All students enrolled at School of Health Sciences are required to register a total of 10-15 units of Elective Courses. Students from Dietetic Programme however, are required to register 20 units of elective courses. The units from Electives Courses will contribute to the total number of units for graduation.
Students are reminded to ONLY select courses indicated by the school and to avoid selecting courses from own programme unless permitted. Students are strongly encouraged to select electives courses offered within their respective academic year level. They may choose courses from one level lower or higher than their academic year, though this practice should be guided closely by academic advisor.
