Teaching and Learning
At Kathford, students learn by a balanced combination of lectures, seminars, project works, internships, and apprenticeships program. Assessment varies between subjects, but normally includes assignments, individual and group seminar presentations, and unit tests.
Project work is an integral part of curriculum in Kathford. Students are provided with an opportunity to undertake projects to be completed within a prescribed timeline and format. They conduct research, collect information from different sources, and prepare document reports. With the project, students put into practice the knowledge and skills gained in the class, and develop areas of special interest.
Workshop and Seminar
Kathford invites eminent scholars to present their special topics and research paper, where our students have the opportunity to personally discuss with them. The workshops bring our students together with domain of specialists from academia, research, business, engineering, software, and manufacturing that help our students gain confidence to address real-life problems in all their innate complexity and ambiguity. Most of our workshops are followed by seminars. Our students find the sessions truly inspirational and helpful to place their experiences in a much wider context.
With Internship, our students gain industry experience. It allows students to integrate classroom learning into a work environment and vice versa. The internship program will give our students an insight into future employment opportunities. Our students will quickly learn what skills and experience are needed to suit their chosen career. Here, students will find mentors, meet contacts and build networks for their future.
Evaluation and Grading
Academic performance of students is evaluated through continuous in-semester assessments and semester-end examination. The in-semester assessments are carried out by faculty members in any or a combination of mid-term, oral tests, assignments, project works, case analysis and discussion, and classroom attendance and participation. Semester-end examination is conducted by the University.
