Here the students are exposed to the various aspects of their discipline from the basics to the manageable details. Having completed the core courses, students meet the requirements for enrolling into the concentration or major courses which prepare the students for career in the chosen area of specialization. Finally, a student has to complete the required Internship assignment to gain practical work experience.
Course Load
Twelve credits without laboratory credits, if any, (that is, 4 courses per semester) are the normal course load according to BUBT standard. However, a student can enroll for more or a smaller number of courses with necessary permission.
Course Sequence
A student must pass all prerequisite courses (foundation, support and core courses) in order to register into higher-level (major/concentration) courses required for the preferred degree. All course sequences must be maintained including English Language requirements for the undergraduate programs. A student must fulfill English Language requirements by the fourth semester after admission.
Class Attendance
A student must attend at least 70% classes in all the courses. Other than LLB two year and LLM programs, 5% marks in each course is allocated for attendance and this score will vary from 1 to 5 according to his/her percentage of presence as noted below. In case of LLB two year and LLM programs 10 marks are allocated for class attendance.

Policy for Semester Promotion

  • For ‘F’ grade holder the course must be repeated within the next 3 consecutive semesters but pre-requisite course/s should be repeated on priority basis. Scorer of ‘F’ grade shall have to pay full fee for the retake course/courses.
  • For improvement of grade in any course, the incumbent student may be allowed to repeat for improvement in that course. However, if any student wishes to take this privilege, he/she has to submit an application through proper channel at least within 2 weeks after publication of result of a particular semester.
  •  The improved grade will be computed in the final transcript and the previous grade/s (i.e. ‘F’ or any other grade of the improver) will be marked with ‘R’ grade (as retake of the course) which has no effect on GPA or CGPA. For improvement of grade, the student has to register the course as usual by paying the half tuition fee (i.e. credit hour basis).

Repeating Courses
Students may repeat courses in order to improve their grades. They must register for and complete the course/courses to accomplish the repeat and 50% of the tuition fees has to be paid for the course/courses repeated. However, a student who receives “F” grade in any course must repeat that course and obtain a minimum of “D” grade in order to meet degree requirements. Both the original and the repeat grades are recorded in the transcript, but CGPA is calculated on the basis of the better of the two grades. A course can be repeated once only.
Retake / Repeat Fees
Students scoring ‘F’ grade in any course shall have to pay full tuition fees for repeating the course. Students with grade lower than “A” in any course may retake the course to improve their grades and shall have to pay half of the tuition fees for the course/courses.
