Occasional Students

An occasional student is one, the duration of whose studentship is less than one academic year. Occasional students should normally stay at the University for one or two semesters.

Entrance qualifications for occasional student’s admission to an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course or equivalent are as described in the prospectus.

The application must be submitted through the applicant’s University/College, to reach the Director of Internationalization, Convocation and Advancement at least two months before the beginning of the semester in which admission is being sought.

The applications must be submitted through the applicant’s University College which should, if it supports the application, send a letter of recommendation to the UDSM.

Admission is on a semester basis for any year of study.

Occasional students will pay fees as prescribed in the terms governing the respective programmes or Students Exchange Agreements between their home University and the UDSM.
