The general admission requirements for entry to an undergraduate program of study is a High School Leaving Certificate or equivalent qualification with minimum grade 75/100.
In addition to a strong academic record, we take into account the student’s involvement in extracurricular activities e.g. working experience in the hospitality industry, leadership skills, and other relevant background information that will enhance the application of the candidate.
Course assessment usually comprises of a comprehensive final exam and continuous assessment. Continuous assessment can include amongst others, mid-terms, projects, and class participation.
Letter grades are calculated based on the weight of the final exam and the continuous assessment and the actual numerical marks obtained in these two assessment components. Based on the course grades the student’s semester grade point average (GPA) and cumulative point average (CPA) are calculated.
The student must complete 240 ECTS and all programme requirements.
A minimum cumulative grade point average (CPA) of 2.0 is required. Thus, although a ‘D-‘ is a PASS grade, in order to achieve a CPA of 2.0 an average grade of ‘C’ is required.
