Placement for Chinese and Arabic Courses
Students who have prior knowledge of Chinese or Arabic, as well as students with more than high-school matriculation in Chinese or Arabic must consult the Department to be placed in a course corresponding to their ability. Enrolment in Chinese or Arabic language courses involves a formal placement process. The Department can refuse permission to remain in a particular language course if the instructor deems that the student's knowledge exceeds the level of that course. Students are advised that misrepresenting their level of knowledge in the language of the course constitutes academic dishonesty and will be dealt with as such.
