Academic atmosphere and discipline contribute to the development of a proper mindset, attitude and behaviour of students on the issue of learning. It is specifically reflected through students’ study goals, attitudes, disciplines, methods, interests, effects, etc. As such, International Education College of China University of Geosciences (CUG) is committed to enhancing the academic atmosphere and discipline, guiding students to form a positive attitude towards learning, clarifying the purpose of learning and improving their enthusiasm and initiative for study, thus creating a sound and strict environment for international students.
International student’s academic atmosphere and discipline have been included in the scholarship assessment and evaluation system. By strengthening classroom teaching discipline and management, intensifying the monitoring and management of education process, setting up an academic exchange platform, International Education College is striving to shape a good academic atmosphere and discipline for students, which helps foster a precise and factualistic spirit, improve the education quality of international students and eventually consolidate the brand of “Study in CUG”.
International Education College will work harder to strengthen the classroom teaching management and supervision to build good academic atmosphere and discipline. International students must obey the management regulation of university, study hard and are not allowed to be late, leave early or be absent from school. Staff from the International Students’ Affairs Office and tutors will regularly check class attendance, take actions when inappropriate classroom behavior happens, and implement university discipline and classroom discipline. Meanwhile, staff from the International Students’ Affairs Office and tutors should make records and educate students who are absent or late for no reasons. Students who fail to regulate their behaviors after several rounds of tutorial talks, shall be given a warning or even be expelled from university for violating the provisions of education and teaching in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Disciplinary Measures for Students of CUG.
International Education College will step up efforts to strengthen the supervision of education process and improve the management mechanism of international students’ cultivation. International students must fulfill the study requirements for the corresponding period according to the study plan. According to the relevant provisions of Regulations on Academic Warning of International Students from CUG, after scores of each semester's courses are submitted, International Education College will have an all-round check on the actual credits obtained by students, and see if there is anyone who fails to do the dissertation proposal or to write the dissertation on time, according to the relevant requirements of the study plan of all faculties. Meanwhile, International Education College will report students’ learning performance in every stage and their cooperation with supervisors. Academic warnings will be given to students who may not be able to complete their studies as planned. International students’ academic atmosphere and discipline are closely related to the assessment of excellence and award. If students receive more than two academic warnings each academic year, International Education College will consider cancelling the qualification for the assessment of excellence and award. For all types of scholarship students, their academic performance will be considered as an important reference for annual scholarship review.
International Education College will build a good academic exchange platform and implement a motivation system for a better academic atmosphere. Through a series of effective academic exchange activities, International Education College should set up a typical model and create a sound study environment for students to strive for excellence. International students should actively participate in the Silk Road Forum, Silk Road Public Class for doctoral students and other professional academic lectures. Tutors should check the attendance of academic lectures. For international students who actively participate in academic lectures, priority should be given to them in the personal assessment for awarding. As for the motivation system, International Education College will award international students and supervisors for publishing international SCI academic papers in accordance with the relevant provisions of CUG.
For all International students, please abide by CUG’ rules and regulations, actively cooperate with teachers and tutors to firmly build a good academic atmosphere and discipline, and create a good environment for academic research and talents training.
