The first Deanery Connect of the New Year held on the 6thof February was attended by seven undergraduates in the cosy setting of Seminar Room ABC at Blk AS7. It was chaired by the Vice-Dean (for External Relations and Student Life) Assoc Prof T. C. Chang. Issues raised by students ranged from career prospects to academic matters.
Some of the issues discussed were:
– An option to allow additional modular credits earned during internship into fulfilling unrestricted electives. One of the difficulties faced by student was having to take up an additional module to fulfill graduation requirements during her internship.
– An option to allow students in their 4th year, to take up both ISMs as well as honours thesis. This option is only available for USP students currently.
Assoc Prof T.C Chang assured all students present that the faculty will look into the issues raised.
