Prescribed textbooks are included in the Module Fee.

As the Module Fee is a package fee, the Module Fee cannot be varied. The Module Fee, therefore, cannot be varied due to the student being in possession of the prescribed textbook and/or courseware prior to the commencement of the module and/or re-registration etc.

What do I require to pass a Module?

Students will need an overall mark of sixty percent (60%) to pass a module. Students who do not achieve a pass mark in an assessment may be provided one (1) further opportunity to retake (supplement) an assessment at an additional supplementary fee.

How is the Overall Mark Calculated?

The overall mark will be calculated from the student’s performance on formative assessments (FA’s) and summative assessments (SA’s).

Minimum is one (1) module per semester, this will ensure students remain academically active. 

It is compulsory that students have access to a computer and internet. Certain course material and/or notes and assessments will only be accessible online or electronically. 

Boston will provide all study guides and/or prescribed texts (where applicable), module information, timetables, and access to filmed lectures for each module. Therefore there will be no requirement to purchase any additional prescribed materials. 

Boston’s network of Support Centres grants our students access to computers, online assessments, filmed lectures, electronic library facilities, examination venues and administrative services. Students must select a single Support Centre and may make daily use of the facilities for the duration of their studies, see attached list. 

Students who have registered online must select a Support Centre (for Assessment purposes only), see attached list. Summative assessments (final examinations) will be conducted at the selected Support Centre*. Formative assessments (assignment and test) will be uploaded into and/or completed online in ColCampus which can be done from home/work.

* Students that do not reside in South Africa and therefore unable to nominate a Support Centre must instead nominate a Proctor. A Proctor is a person who assumes responsibility for the administration and invigilation of examinations. The ideal candidate may include a teacher, police officer, priest or community elder and may not be a friend or family member. It is important that the Proctor has access to a computer, internet, printer, and an email address. Any fees that may be incurred or charged by the Proctor is the responsibility of the student. Summative assessments (final examinations) will be conducted at the venue chosen by the Proctor.

English is the language of communication, instruction and assessment at Boston.
