Programme Regulations

By registering in the AMPAP courses, you accept and understand its rules and regulations:

ACADEMIC POLICY REGULATIONS (January 2021)

1. General

1.1 All courses include a formal learning evaluation process (i.e. individual and team assignments, and exam).

1.2 For all mandatory courses, participants must achieve a final grade of at least 70% in order to pass the course. If a participant’s final grade falls below 70% but is 50% or more, he/she will have the opportunity to take a re-sit exam, the results of which will determine the final grade.

Without limiting the generality of the paragraph above:

a. The re-sit exam will normally be written no later than two weeks from the course end-date; it is the responsibility of the participant to be available for the scheduled exam date and time.
b. The result of the re-sit exam will determine whether the participant achieves a passing grade in the course; (a maximum grade of 70% will be recorded).
c. The re-sit exam may be scheduled only once and the participant will receive an “incomplete” final grade for a no-show.
d. The participant who is unsuccessful in the re-sit exam or who is a no-show will be required to retake the course in full.

1.3 A participant may be deemed to have desisted if he/she is not present at the start of the course for which he/she has registered and may be disallowed to enter the group at the discretion of the course leader. A penalty fee will apply and the maximum penalty that can apply is equal to the full tuition fee charge. The participant may re-register for another scheduled delivery when the penalty charge is paid.

1.4 At any given course, the participant is required to attend in full. Late arrivals or early departures are strictly disallowed.

1.5 A participant must take all necessary measures to overcome any special circumstances that may cause lateness or obstruction to his/her performance and this applies to all mandatory courses regardless of the delivery methods, whether face-to-face, virtual or online course delivery. The course dates are known ahead of time and it is the responsibility of the participant to inform the Course Leader and Registrar of any circumstance that could arise failing which a participant may be considered to have withdrawn, he/she will receive a penalty charge, and an Incomplete course grade. The maximum penalty that can apply is equal to the full tuition fee charge.

2.4. Without limiting the generality of the paragraphs above, for committing an offence(s) a participant will be subject to a penalty, as deemed fit by the course director. The participant will not receive a refund, in whole or in part. A participant may appeal the penalty he/she received with the Registrar in collaboration with an AMPAP Review Committee.
