To all staff and students:
1. As we are aware, the First Semester 2022/2023 for Foundation Studies for Agricultural Science and diploma programmes will commence on the 1st and 8th of August respectively. While the First Semester of 2022/2023 for bachelor and postgraduate studies will commence on 10th October 2022.
2. The Senate of Universiti Putra Malaysia at its 706th meeting on 21st of July 2022, in considering the current situation, agreed on the following:
(a) In principle, all students are required to return to campus in the First Semester of 2022/2023. However, teaching and learning (TnL) activities can be carried out in hybrid form during the first seven (7) weeks for diploma, bachelor and postgraduate studies. Therefore, international students who are unable to return to campus may follow the TnL online. The Faculty/School/Centre may determine the mechanism for TnL in hybrid form.
(b) After Week 7, all students, including international students who are still abroad, are required to return to campus. However, students who cannot follow a course that needs to be conducted physically, including international students who are still abroad and cannot return to campus, are required to drop subjects from registration or, where deemed necessary, to defer their studies for the First Semester of 2022/2023.
(c) If the need arises and with special approval from the Dean/Director of Faculty/School/Centre, TnL activities can be continued in hybrid form after Week 7.
3. Notwithstanding paragraph 2 above, all TnL activities for Foundation Studies for Agricultural Science Programme shall be conducted in physical form during First Semester of 2022/2023.
