The MEP FEB UGM Program lecture is carried out using the semester system (two semesters per year). The students require 40 credits to be awarded the degree of M.Ec.Dev (Master of Economics of Development). The 40 credits consist of 18 credits of instrument and core courses, 12 credits of concentration courses and ten (10) credits for SSR and Thesis. In this system, courses with three (3) credits are equivalent to 3 x 50 minutes face-to-face per week during 18 effective weeks, including the midterm and final examination semester.
General Provision of Regular Program:
The number of attendances in every lecture will be taken into account to determine the final score of the course. The number of attendances also determines whether students eligible to participate in the examination (midterm and final) or not. Minimum attendance is 75%.
Lecturers Performance Assessment:
In the end of semester, the students will be asked to evaluate the performance of the lecturers in order to improve the academic performance of MEP Study Program. The evaluation form of lecturers performance evaluation will be distributed a week before the final exam by the Academic and Information Systems Unit. Student’s assessment results will not affect the students score of the lecturer’s course.
Final Score Authority:
The score authority is the professor’s right. It is taken by considering the elements of objectivity and academic integrity. However, if it is deemed necessary, students have the right to hear the professor’s final score components.
The result of the courses will be announced to students through the Academic and Information Systems Unit. The Academic and Information Systems Unit will only notify students about the exam results (final score) as long as students have no financial administration problem. Students will obtain a Study Result Card (KHS) every semester as a reference for making progress reports or other purposes.
The scoring system is carried out with the letter A; A-; B +; B; B-; C +; C; D; and E as the final score. Each score in letter has a number weight in succession (numerical value) 4; 3.75; 3.25; 3.00; 2.75; 2.25; 2.00; 1.00; and 0.00. In addition, the K and T values are used. The value of K means null or no score, the incomplete score data is because the student resigns legally. T score means incomplete, score data is incomplete because not all assignments are completed in time upon the professor’s permission. The task must be completed in a certain time, which is determined by the professor no later than 1 month and if it is not fulfilled then the T score is changed into the D score.
Procedure for Remedial:
Students have the opportunity to improve grades with the following provision:
The typical study period for MEP FEB UGM students is calculated from the registration date (students must pass the matriculation and be registered as UGM students). The standard study period for students is 19 months, while the maximum study period allowed is twice the normal. Suppose the students cannot complete their studies until the maximum time limit. Then, they must apply for an extension of the study.
Approval of the study extension was decided by the MEP FEB UGM Director with the belief that the students will be able to complete their studies during the extension period. However, if the approval has been obtained, the students must sign a letter stating that they will automatically be dropped out (DO) whenever they fail to finish their studies within a certain period.
In severe violation cases, MEP FEB UGM can decide to revoke students’ status and rights (drop-out). Some of the things that can cause students to be expelled from the MEP FEB UGM are as follows;
Basically, the courses which are part of the academic activities in the the Master Program must be presented by each program. However, it is possible to transfer credit. for example the credit earned in MEP FEB UGM programs (home) can be transferred to another postgraduate program (partner) as long as both parties recognize the courses. The credit transfer act to fulfill the partial total credit for completing the study. The maximum credit transfer allowed in the MEP FEB UGM Program is 12 credits. A list of credit transfers should be proposed to the Deputy of the Academic Section no later than a week after the relevant courses start.
