Both the “University Assessment Policy” and the “Credit Accumulation and Transfer Policy” are accessible at:

Any questions relating to these policies may be addressed to Rebecca Ching, Head of the Curriculum Development and Quality Assurance Section, Registry (e-mail: or Jennifer Wong of her Office (e-mail: in the first instance.

Professor Ian Holliday
Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor
