Overview

Lo'au University would like to state that all its scholarships are aimed to teach and train students to understand in thorough its philosophy of 'Education for Thinking' and its culture with core values.  This is the essence of everything we delivery and develop in our curriculum and the Lo'au University Regulation and Policy System (LURPS).  The whole purpose of our scholarships is to firstly serve this purpose for students, and secondly to comprehend well their subject-matters of study both in theory and practice respectively.  It is not only the educational opportunities via the scholarships important but the programs, strategies and policies that allow students to live in the life of its philosophy of thinking, culture and core values.  We would like the scholarships to open the doors and venues for students to learn on why thinking in its theoretical and practical levels is fundamental, and how they can live and behave in its culture and core values accordingly.  It is for the students to learn on how to grow within this intellectual and rational framework, which at the end can effectively be observable in the content and form of their thinking and behaviour - Philosophy, Culture and Core Values of Lo'au University

The LUPCA consists of three parts: Procedure for Enrollment, Core Curriculum and Assessment Method, all for the purpose of quality assurance and management.

1.  The Procedure is concerned with the steps of enrolling with the University, what every new student in the islands and worldwide must follow in order to complete his/her enrollment.  2.  The Core Curriculum deals with the syllabus of the University, the instruction for BA, MA and PhD students to fulfill so they will complete their individual degrees.  3.  For the Assessment Method, it provides a clear system on how to assess and examine and mark the courses and research works of students.

Included below after the discussion of LUPCA are the different kinds of Award at Lo’au, as well as, the acceptable citation styles for Lo’au University.  However, let start with the Procedure for Enrollment of Students.

1.  Procedure for Enrollment of Students

To be accepted as students of Lo’au University, all prospective applicants must follow the subsequent steps of the Procedure for Enrollment:

1.1. Register on the website (www.loauuniversity.edu.to) of the University as a ‘General Member’.

1.2. Fill the Forms on ‘Admission and Registration’ and ‘Scholarship’ via ‘Financial Aid’ all under the section of “Students” on the said website.  The Letters of Support, Previous Certificates and Transcripts must be uploaded when filling the above Forms. All prospective applicants are assessed in accordance to the Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2, be they BA, MA or PhD prospects (see below for further details on Core Curriculum).  Also, any prospective applicant with his/her previous degree must be assessed in accordance to the subsequent conditions:

- For BA/Proficient Level One, the application must confirm that the prospective applicant has completed Form 6 or year 12 and above with GPA of 2.  The previous level of educational achievement determines the enrollment process (i.e. whether the grades make him/her eligible to enroll) and the amount of courses he/she will take at Lo’au University in order to complete a BA degree.  Hence a Form 6 prospective applicant is assessed differently from a person with an Under-graduate Diploma Certificate.  That is, the latter will take lesser courses due to the fact that he/she has completed almost half of the courses required for a student to complete a BA degree in her/his study for Under-graduate Diploma Certificate;

- For MA/Proficiency Level Two, the application must confirm that the prospective applicant has completed a BA or BA and Post-graduate Diploma with GPA of 2.  The previous level of educational achievement determines the enrollment process (i.e. whether the grades make him/her eligible to enroll) and the amount of courses he/she will take at Lo’au University in order to complete a MA degree.  Hence a prospective applicant with a BA Certificate is assessed differently from someone with a BA and Post-graduate Diploma with GPA of 2.  That is, the latter will take lesser courses if he/she has completed both a BA and Post-graduate Diploma. 

- For PhD/Proficiency Level Three, the application must confirm that the prospective applicant has completed a MA or MA and Post-graduate Diploma with GPA of 2.  The previous level of educational achievement determines the enrollment process (i.e. whether the grades make him/her eligible) and the amount of courses he/she will take at Lo’au University in order to complete a PhD degree.  Hence a prospective applicant with a MA Certificate is assessed differently from someone with a MA and Post-graduate Diploma with GPA of 2 and above. 

After filling in the Forms for ‘Registration and Admission’ and ‘Lo’au Scholarship’, as well as, qualifying from the above enrollment process, then the students must pay the Annual Registration Fees (ARF) before receiving further details to start taking their courses and study with as full-time or part-time students at Lo’au University.

'Scholarshp Code’: Permit to chose your courses from the 'Course Catalogue' under the Section of "Students"

Your Scholarship Code will be given to you after you have completed our two main forms ('Lo'au Scholarship' and 'Admission and Registration') under the Section of "Students" and paid your Registration Fees of $100.  This includes your registration on the website as a General Member of Lo'au University Community (something which you must first fill in by clicking on 'Register' at the top-right-hand corner of this front-page). The latter stands for when you register as a member of this website.  All students must follow the above before studying with Lo'au University.  The Code is the key that allows all students to access to our 'Course Catalogue' and choose their courses of study. 

You can use the Scholarship Code for choosing your courses. You are only allowed to visit your chosen courses without limitation until you have completed your degree.  You’re not allowed to give out your Code to anyone else. 

We have 83 courses available this year, and more courses to come. 

Registration and application for Scholarships has been extended to December 2015, so any prospective applicant who would like to find out more information can contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

For students who still find it hard to use their Scholarship Codes via the ‘Course Catalogue’ to choose their individual courses, please follow the following eight Steps: 

a)  Click on the ‘Course Catalogue’ under “Students” on the front-page for enrollment process; 

b) Click on the COURSE you would like to enroll on;

c)  You will enter a Table of Content, look for a YELLOW button on the left-side; 

d) Click on the YELLOW button to start the enrollment process, and it will take you to the PAYMENT window of that particular given course; 

e)  In the PAYMENT window, take your SCHOLARSHIP CODE and insert into the space provided with the instruction – ENTER SCHOLARSHIP CODE BELOW; 

f) After inserting your CODE then click on the RECALCULATE button, and the result of $100 will be replaced by 0 – i.e. no PAYMENT for scholarship students;  

g) Click on CHECKOUT button to pay the fees with the SCHOLARSHIP CODE, and you will be automatically taken to the STUDENT CONTROL PANEL (SCP) in which your enrollment details are records;  

h) Click on MY COURSES tap on the SCP to visit your courses and select the course you would like to purse, click on it, and it will take you to its Table of Content, and then proceed on from there and read and study your course.  You won’t see the YELLOW button again, which means you have completed the enrollment process successfully.  

Every prospective applicant must follow and complete the above in order to be recruited and enrolled as a new student of the Lo’au University.  Now let us proceed on and talk about the Core Curriculum of the University.
