Attendance is an important element of a student's success in his/her studies and 80% attendance at all classes is strongly recommended at least 80%. Attendance records will be maintained for each class. Students who are sick and unable to attend classes are required to hand in a medical certificate to AMDT office within three days of returning to the Academy. Random checks to verify medical certificates may be made.

Students who have missed a class must explain absence to the Academic Coordinator. And should inform the office that he/her won't be able to attend.

Also the students who have missed class must cover- up the class from another batch.

Students with unsatisfactory attendance will be required to meet with the Directors or nominee. Students who do not meet attendance requirements or maintain acceptable academic standards may be excluded from AMDT.

Dress code

Students are expected to adhere to a dress code which requires clothing to be clean, modest and appropriate. Students are not permitted to wear indecent or revealing clothing. Slippers or bare feet are not acceptable.


It is the policy of AMDT to maintain a clean and smoke free environment. Smoking is not allowed inside the AMDT building or any of the external environment surrounding the building. Students who do wish to smoke must do so well away from any buildings.

AMDT Facilities

Students must respect the requirements and rules for use of both AMDT facilities. Students who disregard these rules will be subject to disciplinary action.

Classroom Behavior

It is expected that there be mutual respect in the classroom. This means respect between both students and lecturers and fellow students. All students should conduct themselves in an appropriate manner, with consideration for others' right to personal space, speech and culture.

If students are involved in a minor breach of these rights (for example, excessive noise), the student will be warned by the lecturer. In the event of continued inappropriate behavior, the lecturer will ask the student to leave the classroom for that week's class and also it will be entered in the student's file.

For major breaches of these rights (for example, violence, harassment or continual problems in behavior) the lecture will ask the student to leave the class room and will advise the directors. In this even a meeting will take place between the directors, lectures and student. A formal warning will be given to the student. For continued behavioral problems, a student's enrolment may be cancelled.

Mobile phones

Mobile phones should be used with sensitivity and discretion. Mobile phones and pagers must be turned off in classrooms, computer laboratories and examination venues.

Lateness to class

Students are expected to arrive at their classes on time. It is disruptive to have students walking into the classroom after the class has started. The lecturer may require students to wait until the next break to enter the classroom. If students must leave class early, they should also wait for the break to do so.

Cleanliness of classrooms/ labs

No food or drink is to be taken into classrooms/ labs.

It's recommended to enroll for a maximum of three (3) units and a minimum two (2) units for this semester.
