AMS Programme

College of Humanities excited first year students

The University has a special system to monitor and support the academic progress of all students. This is called The Academic Monitoring and Support Programme (AMS). The Dean of Teaching and Learning has oversight of this programme in the College of Humanities. 

All first-year students are considered to be green up until their first exams. Thereafter, at the beginning of each semester, you will receive a code with a corresponding colour to help you track your performance. This code is based on your performance in the exams, as well as the University progression rules. Here is a description of each colour and code:
