Additional Courses Requirements for Graduate Students
February 26, 2019
Apart from the Master’s Thesis, if you are not able to reach the mininum grade of all the courses in the current semester, then our Department, Academic Affairs and Degree Program will hold a meeting to discuss about your eligibility in continuing your study in NTHU. If there is an agreement in the meeting, then you might have to drop out from NTHU.
Therefore, every Master and PhD student has to pay attention in the course selections each semester in order to avoid this kind of event happening. Otherwise, if you only take 1 course in the current semester and you fail the course, then there is a possibility that you will be dropped out from NTHU.
Every graduate student is required to take 1 course every semester. (Master Thesis or Thesis Research is also counted)
“Master Thesis” or “Thesis Research” will be selected automatically by the system: According to our Department regulations, every Master and PhD student is required to take “Master Thesis” or “Thesis Research” from the second or third year of study. You do not need to select this course by yourself because our system will select this course automatically.
For the first year Master and PhD students, if you are need to take "Master Thesis" or "Thesis Research" due to particular reasons, then you need to submit "Enrollment Form" for both of these courses.
From 2015, all of our Master and PhD students are required to finish this course prior to the end of first year of study.
This is an online-based course with 0 credit. Every student has to reach the mininum grade from the examination to pass this course. If you are failed to do so, then you are not eligible to take the oral examination for your Master or PhD degree.
Apart from the mandatory courses, 2 credits of "Seminar" for 2 semesters and 4 credits "Master Thesis," you are required to take 24 credits that are acknowledged by our Department. You are also allowed to take NTHU undergraduate courses (up to 6 credits and not limited in any department courses) if your advisor allows you to do so.
However, if on the current master program, you happened to take the undergraduate courses with the same course number, course title, and taught by the same instructor as on your undergraduate program before, the credits of these courses will not be counted as your master's graduation credit.
Another additional requirements:
Apart from the mandatory courses and “Thesis” , you are required to take 18 credits that are acknowledged by our Department. For direct pursuit PhD students, you are required to take 30 credits that are acknowledged by our Department.
Another additional requirements:
Please pay a close attention to these requirements, so that you can apply for Qualification Exam or Oral Defense without any graduation credits issues.
According to the agreement of Professors’ Meeting, Graduate students are not allowed to take Interschool Courses if our Department offers the same course.
If you are happened to have another schedule that intersects with our Department courses and have to take Interschool Courses, please submit a Schedule Intersects Proof, the description of why you have to take those courses, and Application form of Interschool Courses to our Department office, so that your application could be evaluated by our Department’s Dean.
(These requirements are adopted in Chinese, which shall prevail in case of any discrepancy between the English translation and the Chinese original.)
