Plagiarism has become an increasingly serious problem in the University. It is aggravated by the easy access to a wide range of materials available on the internet. The situation is particularly severe in course assessment involving submission of report / poster / presentation, where students have been caught copying materials in bulk. Plagiarism is regarded as a very serious offence in the academic world. It constitutes academic theft - the offender has 'stolen' the work of others and presented the stolen work as if it were his or her own. It goes to the integrity and honesty of a person. It stifles creativity and originality, and defeats the purpose of education. 


In this University, plagiarism is a disciplinary offence and may be considered by the University's Disciplinary Committee for possible disciplinary action. Any student who commits the offence is liable to disciplinary action. You may refer to the booklet on "What is Plagiarism?" available here to avoid committing such an offence.​​​​

All examination papers are carefully marked by examiners and the results are duly approved by the Board of Examiners. The University's position is that students are not allowed to appeal against examination results with regard to the academic judgment. However, if students wish to apply for rechecking of their examination results due to procedural irregularity or technical error, they should apply in writing to the Faculty Office by submitting a separate application for each course to be checked within 14 days after the announcement of the assessment results.


Please refer the Procedures for Checking of Assessment Results of Taught Courses (document 111/511 amended) for details:

  • Submit one application form for each course to be checked to the Faculty Office, together with the receipt of payment by email to; AND
  • Late application will not be considered.

The University is committed to nurturing a positive, supportive, and respectful learning environment to underpin a productive and generative learning culture. Students undertake to follow the Code of Academic Conduct  to enable members of the campus community to attain their academic and personal aspirations.

Starting from 2022, two Congregations will be held by the University to officially confer degrees on our students who are eligible for graduation. A "summer Congregation" will be held in July and a "winter Congregation" will be held between late November and early December.


Graduands who are eligible for graduation will be assigned to the Congregation nearest to the completion date of their studies for conferral of degrees. Candidates who are not able to attend the assigned session of Congregation will be conferred the degrees in absentia.
