About the EPD Academic Mentorship Exercise

This is an exercise for students to indicate their preferred choice of courses for the next term. It acts as a pre-registration for courses. Participation in this exercise will go a long way in helping the Office of Student Administration plan the timetable and for course leads to prepare materials. It also helps students plan their academic route in consultation with an experienced advisor.
