The degree student is responsible for knowing all the pertinent content of the U of N catalogue:
The student is responsible to ensure that his/her course programme satisfies degree requirements. Students need to be aware that each credit point is based on satisfactory completion of all requirements for one full learning week for the registered school or seminar.
The student is responsible for keeping a record of their completed course work and grades. This record should include documentation of exact dates and locations of both lecture phases and outreach/field assignments. The student should also keep a photocopy of their approved degree planning form. This precaution is a personal safeguard as the student travels from location to location.
Most U of N schools have 12 full learning weeks during the standard school term, yielding 12 credits. If a field assignment lasts 8, 9, 10 or 11 weeks, then the student may earn a maximum of 8, 9, 10 or 11 credits respectively. In some locations the academic coordinators can arrange appropriate registered seminars of 1-3 credits to be taken following the shorter than 12-week outreach. Therefore 12 credits (e.g. 9+3 or 10+2) could still be obtained during a 12-week period. Students need to be aware that when a field assignment phase is less than 12 full weeks long, they must assume the responsibility to plan their programmes with additional credit courses or seminars to fulfil degree requirements.
All students enrolling in the U of N are expected to be committed Christians who aim to glorify God in their lives. As a result, school leaders and staff have high expectations for each student. The U of N modular education system demands concentrated study and continuous diligence, because the academic content of each course or school is equivalent to several traditional university courses. Since the expectations and demands are high, student performance is monitored carefully.
The development of Christian character is an integral part of our training and a central ongoing goal of the U of N. Consequently, we expect that the conduct of U of N students will be in keeping with biblical standards. Any verified moral violation (including but not limited to cheating and plagiarism, sexual immorality, lying, dishonesty, theft, substance abuse, physical or sexual abuse) will be considered grounds for disciplinary action including probation and possible dismissal from the University.
