The principal duties of the Executive Committee are to determine and implement policy for the good of the group, and to represent the interests of the group generally to various university and other agencies.
Faculty Advisor : You are initially assigned to a faculty member close to your interests. The Faculty Advisor can be changed by the consent of all parties. Typically the Faculty Advisor is the person who will oversee your research and progress during your degree program — i. The student representative to the TTPGG Executive Committee will represent student views to the Committee and the faculty as a whole on matters relating to curriculum, by-laws, invitation of faculty members to join the group, marketing the group, general policies relating to admissions and financial aid, and qualifications of prospective personnel.
The election of the student representative takes place in the spring quarter. The term of office is from July 1 to June A maximum of two consecutive terms is possible, subject to re-election. The criteria for eligibility to be student representative are: A student in the grad group; in or beyond second year fourth quarter of graduate school at UCD when term begins; making satisfactory academic progress; and UCD graduate GPA of 3.
Amy Lee, aelee ucdavis. She handles administration of all required paperwork, graduate student questions and referrals, schedules seminars and courses, and along with the Financial Assistants, administers the financial aid programs for the TTP students. Annemarie may be reached at or aschaaf ucdavis.
Selected requirements are tabulated below for your convenience. For general graduate student information and polices, please visit the Graduate Student Guide. Courses taken to meet the prerequisites will not count toward the TTP degree. A form documenting your fulfillment of these requirements must be completed both at the time application is made to TTP and if not all requirements had been met when you applied after enrolling at UC Davis for the first time.
FAQs about these prerequisites can be found at here. Curriculum : The TTP curriculum allows flexibility in creating a course of study crossing traditional disciplinary boundaries. The program gives students the flexibility to develop high-level skills in disciplines of their choosing to best support their interests and career goals. To receive an S grade you must attend at least seven of the typically eight seminars, and sign the attendance roster.
Remote viewing policy. TTP units do not count toward the total units required for the degree. You should notify Annemarie Schaaf aschaaf ucdavis. This is really important, as any form of support you receive from the university is contingent upon your being a full-time student. There will be a different Course Registration Number CRN for each faculty member, and you should register for the one associated with your particular Faculty Advisor.
All students should also register for some number of research units every quarter TTP s , as needed to complete at least 12 units a quarter, for the entire program. The seminars and research requirement provide you with an opportunity to broaden your knowledge of transportation and to integrate the knowledge and skills you gain in your different courses.
Exceptions will be made for cases of unavoidable course conflicts. Standards of Scholarship : Only courses in which A, B, C, or Satisfactory are earned may be counted in satisfaction of degree requirements. A grade-point average of at least 3. Lower division courses are excluded in calculating the graduate GPA and do not count for graduate degree credit.
Application for advancement to candidacy may be made if the average is only slightly below 3. Even if advanced to candidacy, you must attain a minimum grade point average of 3. The CRNs change each quarter and the assigned numbers will be posted on the TTP web site and sent via e-mail to ttpstudents ucdavis.
Committees : Two or three faculty committees are appointed for each student at various points in the degree program. You form these committees by obtaining agreement from the people you want to be on them, subject to the guidelines below and elsewhere in this manual.
Every student requires a three-person guidance committee who approves your Program of Study, and is responsible for monitoring your progress in the program. MS Plan I students will require a three-person thesis committee , who advises the student on the thesis research and signs the thesis when it is satisfactorily completed. MS Plan II students will require a three-person examination committee , who administers the comprehensive exam and determines whether the student passes and receives the degree.
PhD students will require a five-person qualifying examination committee , who administers the qualifying examination and determines whether the student advances to candidacy, and a three-person dissertation committee , who advises the student on the dissertation research and signs the thesis when it is satisfactorily completed.
Program of Study : Consult with your Faculty Advisor to select a guidance committee as soon as possible, but no later than the end of your second quarter of study. Mentoring Guidelines : We believe that the personalized attention offered by faculty to students in the TTP program is one of its greatest strengths, and we want to continue to foster those close relationships. The Graduate Council guidelines here describe what you should be able to expect from your mentors here at UC Davis, and your reciprocal responsibilities in that relationship.
A minimum of two units must be taken in each session. For MS Plan I students, a three-person thesis committee recommended by the Graduate Adviser and officially appointed by the Dean of Graduate Studies, must approve and sign the thesis. For MS Plan II students, a three-person examination committee, approved by the Graduate Adviser, administers the comprehensive examination. After the candidacy form has been signed by the Graduate Adviser and thesis chairperson if Plan I, thesis plan , it is to be returned to Graduate Studies.
Graduate Studies sends formal notices of advancement to candidacy to the chair of the committee. A copy of the candidacy application is sent to the Graduate Coordinator for the program files, and to the student. If you are not eligible for advancement, the department and you will be informed that action on the application has been deferred and of the reasons for the deferral e. On the candidacy application you and the Graduate Adviser agree to and submit a statement of how you will complete the requirements for the degree under either Plan I or Plan II.
If changes need to be made in your program for the degree after advancement to candidacy, recommendations for such changes must be made in writing to Graduate Studies by the Graduate Adviser. MS Plan I Thesis Requirements : Requires completion of 36 units of coursework at the upper division and graduate levels, including the core requirements and submission of a thesis.
Beyond the core requirements, students may choose electives from those recommended in the core matrix or from the subsequent approved list of courses for the TTP program, with no restrictions on category track. The topic should be acceptable to all three members of the committee, when they agree to serve. For the thesis to be acceptable for degree conferral, all members must sign the title page certifying that you have completed your thesis to their satisfaction.
In case the committee members cannot reach a unanimous decision to accept the thesis but a majority is favorable, the majority and minority should report their separate opinions of its merits to the Dean of Graduate Studies who will make the final decision according to the procedures outlined by Graduate Studies for dealing with divided graduate committees. If the thesis is regarded by the committee to be of less than acceptable quality, you should be given an appropriate period of time, clearly specified by the committee, in which to improve your work.
If, after that period of time usually a quarter or more , the thesis is still unacceptable to a majority of the committee, the committee may recommend to the Dean of Graduate Studies that you be disqualified from further graduate study in this program. TTP cannot support the use of staff time or equipment for word processing or photocopying of theses and reports, unless all costs are covered through research grants or by the student.
Computers and printers are available in the student lab for research or course-related work. You are responsible for observing the filing dates and for preparing the thesis in proper form. MS Plan II Comprehensive Examination Requirements : Requires completion of 36 units of coursework at the upper division and graduate levels, including the core requirements, and satisfactory performance on a comprehensive examination.
Beyond the core requirements, students may choose electives from those recommended in the matrix or from the subsequent approved list of courses for the TTP program, with no restrictions on category track. The comprehensive examination may be written or oral or both. You should ascertain in advance the general subject matter on which your committee will examine you and who will be on your committee.
Obviously it is to your advantage if you have actually taken the core classes in question from the committee members themselves. In addition, your Faculty Advisor may not be the Chair of the examination committee. You should not appear for this examination until you have been advanced to candidacy by Graduate Studies.
The comprehensive examination committee examines you on your transportation and related knowledge, including coverage of core courses and other courses in your Program of Study. Upon completion of the comprehensive examination, the Chair of the Committee must notify the Graduate Coordinator, indicating the following:.
Graduate Studies requires a unanimous vote of the committee to pass you on the comprehensive examination. If you do not pass the examination, the committee may recommend that you be reexamined one time. If the Graduate Adviser concurs, you may be reexamined. Changes in the composition of the committee may be made only for reasons of clear necessity, e. The examination may not be repeated more than once. If you do not pass on the second attempt you are thereby subject to disqualification from further work as a graduate student in this program.
See here for information about working on degrees in two UCD programs simultaneously. You must also complete a separate thesis or examination for each degree program. Required Forms to File : All forms should be completed with the guidance of your Faculty Advisor, and the Graduate Adviser will generally be the last one to sign. This form is available from Graduate Studies. The Graduate Adviser will review the form. The minimum requirements are four of the following five criteria:.
At this time, a preliminary examination is not required by TTP but that is subject to change. It may save valuable time in the long run. Curricular Requirements : PhD students are required to complete 54 total units, including units completed toward a relevant MS, but excluding any research units.
PhD students must complete three core courses as well as at least two in the chosen track and three skill area courses. Beyond the core requirements, students may choose electives from those recommended in the matrix or from the subsequent approved list of courses for the TTP program. Residence Requirements : Students working toward a doctorate must be registered and in University residence for a minimum of six regular quarters.
Two consecutive regular Summer Sessions may be counted as the equivalent of one regular quarter if at least two units are taken in each Summer Session. All committee members should carry an educational role in their job titles, and at least three members of the examination committee must be voting members of the TTP Graduate Group. The Graduate Council policy on the Qualifying Exam is here. Tips from Graduate Studies for succeeding on the Qualifying Exam are here. To be eligible for the examination, you must have satisfied all program requirements e.
You must be registered in the quarters in which you take any portion of the qualifying examination. In principle, the exam can cover any aspect of the coursework included in your program of study. In practice, naturally, time constraints and the collective expertise of the committee will limit the subjects that are likely to be covered on the exam. To ensure that the committee is capable of covering your Program of Study, we require that you complete a form documenting the members of your committee and the areas of the core that each committee member is responsible for.
You should indicate those areas in consultation with the respective committee members. This form is available here. Dissertation : Upon completion of the above requirements, a research dissertation committee is selected. Your major professor is usually the Chair of this three or more -person committee. The other two members are selected based on their interest and involvement in your research. Two of the three members must be members of the Academic Senate.
A 4-person dissertation committee may be composed of two Academic Senate members and two research scientists. This committee provides guidance to you in formulating and carrying out a doctoral research project. A dissertation on a subject chosen by you, the candidate, bearing on the principal subject of study, and of such character as to show ability to prosecute independent investigation must be approved by the committee in charge of the dissertation and by Graduate Studies before the degree will be recommended.
Special emphasis will be on this requirement, and the degree will in no case be granted merely for the faithful completion of a course of study, however extensive. The dissertation will address a subject chosen by the student and contain the following elements: It must be original; It must demonstrate creative and independent work and be of publishable quality for a peer-reviewed journal; It must contribute to the body of knowledge in transportation technology or policy; All aspects must be defensible, including hypothesis es , quality of data, methods, results and interpretation; The work must be primarily that of the student; the student should be primary author of all chapters or manuscripts included in the dissertation; The dissertation must be tied together by a unifying theme.
It is recommended that at least one manuscript derived from the dissertation be submitted not necessarily accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal before the dissertation is approved. An abstract of the dissertation must be filed by the same date. At the time of filing the dissertation, you must sign an agreement with ProQuest, to digitally archive the dissertation and print the abstract in Dissertation Abstracts. Arrangements for copyrighting the dissertation and for obtaining reprints of the abstract, if desired, must also be made at this time.
Fellowships : Using this application for admission, UC Davis awards a select few prestigious fellowships to prospective graduate students. To be considered for one of these fellowships, you must submit your application for admission by January These fellowships are awarded based solely on your application for admission, as there is not a separate fellowship application for these specific UC Davis graduate student fellowships.
At the program level, various fellowships may be awardable using the application for admission. You will be notified as any additional fellowship opportunities become available. Elimination of Nonresident Tuition for PhD Candidates : Nonresident doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy by the first day of the term will have the nonresident tuition charge waived.
This waiver is in effect for a maximum of three years beginning with the first academic term following advancement to candidacy and ending three calendar years later. Any such student who continues to be enrolled or who re-enrolls after receiving the waiver for three years will be charged the full nonresident tuition rate that is in effect at that time.
Are the rules governing the use of third party copyright materials any different for e-theses compared to hard-copy theses? No, copyright regulations with regard to the use of third party copyright materials apply to both hard copy and electronic copy theses. Third party copyright material is any material where copyright is held by another person or entity, other than yourself.
You should not infringe copyright in your thesis. Unless your use of the third party copyright material comes under the fair dealing exemption in the Copyright and Related Rights Act , you should seek permission to use it in your thesis. While there is no exact definition given in the Act as to the amounts that may be reproduced under the fair dealing exemption, the general view is that copying an insubstantial amount of third party material without the permission of the owner of the copyright would not infringe copyright.
However, whether the amount of a third party's work that has been used is insubstantial requires both a quantitative and a qualitative assessment. For example, a diagram or a table may constitute a small part of a third party's work quantitatively but may convey significant information which is central to the third party's work. Its use by the student might therefore be regarded as use of a substantial amount of the third party's work and therefore outside the protection of the fair dealing exception.
Each proposed use of third party material therefore has to be examined carefully on its own particular facts in order to determine whether its use would constitute fair dealing. Copyright Guide for Research Students: What you need to know about copyright before depositing your electronic thesis in an online repository [Online]. What if I want to include a journal article that I have authored or contributed to as a chapter in my thesis?
This will depend on whether you have assigned copyright for the article to the publisher. If you have transferred copyright to the publisher, then this is an instance of the use of third party copyright material in your thesis. While some publishers may not allow you to use the published version of an article in your thesis, most will allow you to use the accepted version i. It is difficult to prevent plagiarism of print or electronic theses effectively but it is easier to detect plagiarism when theses are made available online.
It is possible to find text snippets by entering them into a search engine such as Google and plagiarism detection software like Turnitin compares work against freely available internet sources like open access e-theses. Additionally, users of your thesis will be made aware of the rights of the author through the copyright information on the record of the thesis.

Published reports of research undertaken during graduate study at UC Davis, having been approved by the thesis or dissertation committee, may be accepted in printed form as all or part of the master's thesis or doctoral dissertation.
If you are not the sole or first author of the published material submitted, the materials must be approved by the department or graduate group. It is the author you who is responsible in the matter of copyrighted materials. The agreement, which you submit to PQIL, specifically absolves them of any such responsibility. If you quote extensively from a particular author, especially in fields such as fiction, drama, criticism, or poetry, or if copyrighted maps, charts, statistical tables, or similar materials have been reproduced, you must write the copyright owner s , describe the use which you are making of the materials, and request permission to use it in the dissertation or thesis.
For your protection, a statement listing such materials should be included in the acknowledgements of the dissertation or thesis. The statement should inform the reader 1 that permission has been granted for their use, and 2 the source of the permission. If you have questions or concerns about electronic submission or formatting guidelines, contact the Graduate Studies Senior Academic Advisor responsible for your program.
The University of California is committed to disseminating research and scholarship conducted at the University as widely as possible. The UC Policy on Open Access for Theses and Dissertations requires the deposit of theses and dissertations in an open access repository to be freely and openly available to the public, subject to an embargo obtained by the student.
For more information on the policy visit the UC Policy webpage. This means potential publishers, collaborators, and other interested parties may freely access your work. On the Immediate Release or Embargo Agreement, you are asked whether you would like your thesis or dissertation released to the public immediately after your degree is awarded or after a period of delay called an embargo. Depending on your field, past or future publication considerations, and the content of your paper, you may or may not wish to delay open access.
Discuss your options with your major professor and committee. Selecting immediate release means your thesis or dissertation will be delivered to ProQuest and separately made available for open access through eScholarship, as soon as feasible, after your degree has been officially awarded.
The more accessible your thesis or dissertation is, the more likely it is to be seen and cited. If you do not yet have a publishing agreement, open access may make it easier for a publisher to review your work. Open access also builds collegiality and helps other researchers in your field, potentially expanding your own network. In academia, an embargo is a restriction placed on a thesis or dissertation that allows only the title, abstract, and citation information to be released to the public, while the full text of the work is kept unviewable for a period of time.
Embargoes of the UC Davis thesis or dissertation are permitted for up to six years with approval of the major professor. The copyright law of the United States is quite complex. The information contained in this section is only a general guide — more detailed information can be found through the University Library's Copyright Page or this copyright information document sponsored by ProQuest.
Your thesis or dissertation is automatically protected by copyright when it is written put in a "fixed form". Release through ProQuest and eScholarship provides an independently verified date of record for your copyright. You are the holder of the copyright for your work unless you transfer it, e.
Copyright registration is a legal formality that establishes a public record of your claim to the work. It is not required in order for your work to be protected by copyright, but it is required in order to sue for copyright infringement in a federal court. If the work is registered within three months of its publication date or before a particular copyright infringement occurs, the copyright holder can recover statutory damages monetary awards not necessarily connected to actual harm suffered by the copyright holder and attorney fees if they are successful in the infringement suit.
Whether or not you register the copyright for your thesis or dissertation, you retain the right to publish all or any part of it by any means at any time, except for reproduction from a negative microfilm as described in the agreement with PQIL. Previously published materials, currently available in the public domain, are not eligible for copyright registration.
Graduate Studies Senior Academic Advisors will email you a PDF degree conferral letter after they have received your final documents and have filed you to graduate. The conferral letter confirms you have completed all graduation requirements and will be awarded your master's or doctoral degree on the conferral date. Many employers, organizations, and governments who require verification of degree will be satisfied by this letter in the time before your transcript is updated and your diploma is mailed.
If you need the letter by a certain date in order to secure employment, notify your Senior Academic Advisor. Learn how to obtain your diploma, when your transcript will be updated, and more on our Diplomas, Transcripts, and Verification webpage. You maintain student-level access until the end of your final enrolled or filing-fee quarter.

The bibliography should cite all the works you have consulted, and none that you have not personally used. All work you present as your own must be the result of your own efforts only. It is not permissible to submit an essay or project reproducing wholly or in part the essay or project of another student. Nor may any student pass on their own writings for such a use by others.
Please note that all students, when submitting an assessment project for examination purposes, will be required to sign a formal declaration that the work they are submitting is their own unaided and original work. Academic integrity and avoiding plagiarism Students must note that failure to take account of these guidelines in their writing constitutes plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as: The copying of another person s writings or works or ideas in any thesis, essay, project, laboratory report or other exercise which forms part of the requirements for an academic course, where such copying is either unauthorized by the copyright owner or unacknowledged in the thesis, essay, project, laboratory report or other exercise, or both.
Failure to cite sources properly, and recourse to copying sections of text without proper referencing, counts as plagiarism just as much as use of another person s essay or project work. This is a serious breach of academic standards. Furthermore, the College regards plagiarism as cheating, and as such, a wholly unacceptable breach of discipline, as indicated in Section 6 of the Student Code for University College Dublin, which is given in full in the Student Information Handbook.
Plagiarism will be penalized heavily and may result in no marks at all being given for a project or essay, exclusion from your examination, or exclusion from your course. Please note also that the School retains the right to refer suspected cases of plagiarism to the University s Disciplinary Committee. UCD s policy on plagiarism is set out here: Please see the UCD guidelines on Avoiding Plagiarism here: Helpful information and guidelines on avoiding plagiarism are also available here: 6.
The submission process may vary between courses. Submission of written work for assessment implies acceptance of UCD s policies on original work and academic integrity as indicated here in the guidelines on plagiarism. When a hard copy has to be submitted in addition to an electronic copy via Blackboard s SafeAssign link , a signed Declaration of Authorship form see Appendices below must be attached to the essay and handed in to the location specified by the lecturer.
All written work must be submitted on or before the due dates. Submission deadlines can be found on the course outlines distributed in the first session of each module in case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the lecturer. The onus is on you to ensure that you receive a receipt for all work submitted and you should retain this receipt as proof of submission should it be needed at a later date. In case you get ill, you need to send a medical certificate to the college admin office G Without medical certificates it is not possible to get extenuating circumstance if you have questions, please contact the lecturer.
In accordance with the University s procedures for anonymous marking, please do not put your name on the work submitted. Please do ensure, however, that your student number, the module number and title for which work is being submitted, the lecturer to whom it is being submitted, all appear on any piece of work you submit. Thesis All MPP students are required to complete a thesis or dissertation of approximately 10, 12, words.
Three soft bound copies of the theses have to be submitted to the college admin office G and one electronic copy has to be submitted via Blackboard. Late submissions will be subject to a marks penalty and may risk total exclusion from the examination process. No grade higher than B can be given to late submissions, and a grade of NG is a possibility.
The maximum grade that can be awarded for a late submission is B. Extensions may only be granted in exceptional circumstances by the Director of the MPP programme in consultation with the MPP Programme Board, based on the advice of the Supervisor and supported by clear evidence of extenuating circumstances. As a result, no student can be awarded a degree without achieving a passing grade in the dissertation.
The student is responsible for any consequent examination and continuation fees. In preparation for the thesis, you must complete the requirements of the EDUC Research Design module in the first semester, which will include an exercise in formulating a research proposal. A supervisor will be assigned to you on the basis of your research outline.
Guidelines for thesis preparation and submission Supervision and thesis preparation The topic of the thesis is first proposed by the student in the form of the one page outline of the research question to be addressed, which is submitted in January. The student is responsible for arranging to meet with the supervisor regularly during the preparation and writing of the thesis, culminating in a final meeting no later than the end of July.
The student may also submit one draft of the thesis for feedback from the supervisor during this period. During August, any technical questions about the thesis or submissions process should be directed to the programme office. Submission The deadline for thesis submission this academic year is Tuesday 18 August , 12 noon. Hard copies must be printed on one side of good quality, A4 size paper in legible form, with a clear cover and card back of the sort provided by Copi Print.
One signed Declaration of Authorship see Appendices should accompany the hard copies of all theses. Theses should be 10, 12, words in length including literature, footnotes, tables etc. Referencing You must make sure that your referencing and bibliography reflect the highest academic standards.
Thesis with poor referencing and bibliography will lose marks unnecessarily. Please see the information on the UCD Library website at: The Harvard referencing system is widely used in the social sicences author, date, page , though supervisors may advise otherwise in individual cases.
Whichever system you use, it must be fully adhered to and consistently implemented with appropriate typography. For full details on the Harvard system: Thesis layout Theses may be presented in double or 1. Only one standard typeface 8. Italics may be used for book titles, foreign terms and other cases that are appropriate in conjunction with the standard face used in the text.
Margins should be 40mm at the binding edge and other margins should be not less than 20mm. Page numbers are placed without punctuation at the bottom centre of the page within the margin. Preliminary pages are numbered in consecutive lower case roman numerals. The Title page number does not appear but the page is counted as page 'i'. Pages appearing before the Table of Contents are numbered and counted but are not listed on the Table of Contents. The first page of the Introduction or first chapter of your thesis is numbered page 1; the rest of the text and reference materials is numbered consecutively in Arabic numerals.
Original work Students are required to familiarize themselves with standard academic practice in the preparation and presentation of their written work. In addition to complying with the university s policy on plagiarism, all assessed work is expected to be original. As a result, written work that has already been submitted for assessment normally in the course of a taught module should not be re submitted for assessment as part of the same module, another module or research thesis.
This prohibition covers written text, but not ideas or arguments, which may be re used if they are re worked into new form. All students, when submitting an assessment project for examination purposes, will be required to sign a formal declaration that the work they are submitting is their own unaided and original work. All the sources on which you draw must be duly acknowledged in the text or in footnotes, and the full source cited in the bibliography.
Failure to take account of these guidelines in their writing constitutes plagiarism. Notes on avoiding plagiarism are set out above. Students may propose a specific internship position with a host agency or organization. Students may approach prospective internship Hosts either at their own initiative or in response to specific internship opportunities that may be identified by the Board of Studies of the Master of Public Policy programme.
It is the student's responsibility to secure an internship. With the agreement and support of the prospective Host, the student must then present a formal Learning Contract for approval by the Internship Coordinator. This contract should state the specific work assignments and educational objectives of the internship. A Memorandum of Agreement must be completed by the student and the Host Supervisor. This Memorandum is to accompany the Learning Contract.
Under the Memorandum, the Host Supervisor agrees to give the student substantive work assignments, to supervise and to guide the student s performance, and to provide a written evaluation of the student s performance at the end of the internship. In the absence of a submitted MOA and Learning Contract on or by that date, the student will automatically and definitively be re registered to the thesis module.
The student must normally work full time as an intern for a minimum of hours within the third summer semester. The student must raise any issues that adversely impinge on the successful completion of the internship as soon as is feasible with the Internship Coordinator. In order to be eligible for transfer into the MPP, full time Grad Dip students must have completed and earned a final mark of B or higher in each of the core modules required in the first semester for the master s programme in question and a grade of B or higher in all other optional modules.
Students who wish to transfer are therefore responsible for registering on the first semester core modules of the relevant programme, which can be found in the Graduate Handbook. For part time students, see below. It is solely the student s responsibility to ensure that this application is submitted by the deadline.
Applications will not be considered if they are submitted in hard copy or after the deadline. Any Grad Dip student considering applying for transfer should arrange at the start of the first semester to audit and complete all required assignments for POL Dissertation Design. If the transfer is approved, this audit will be converted into a regular enrollment and grade. In addition, all such students are strongly advised to discuss their plans with the relevant Grad Dip coordinator at the start of Term 1.
Once applications are submitted, the school s Postgraduate Administrator will confirm each applicant s eligibility for transfer and then forward all eligible applications to the MPP Programme Board for review and decision. Decisions shall be communicated to the student within the first week of classes in Term 2. Part time GradDip students are covered by this same policy, but all requirements related to semester 1 and semester 2 apply instead to Year 1 and Year 2.
Students approved for transfer will be required to pay the difference in fees that will apply.
