Students must consult with the Dean of the Faculty/School (or designate) prior to departure and present a detailed study/research/work plan. The Dean, in consultation with appropriate departmental advisers (if necessary) will provide the student with detailed criteria which must be fulfilled in order to gain credit for the course. These criteria (in the form of a `contract` to be signed by the student and the Dean), may include, but are not limited to: a detailed report of results (with a specified format/length), a detailed diary or electronic submission, a reflection on the learning experience, an oral presentation to peers and faculty. A deadline date for submission will also be specified. The student will report to the Dean upon return or completion of the experience. No credit will be given without prior approval of the Dean and a failing grade will be assigned if students do not fulfill the pre-approved reporting arrangement. A 'lab course' credit may be given under appropriate circumstances as determined by the Dean. This course may not be used as a substitute for any other course offered by the Faculty of Science, but will count towards the 15.0 or 20.0 courses required for graduation.
