Additional Learning Requirements (OFA)

This page explains how to fulfil any additional learning requirements (OFAs) resulting from your admission test score.
In order to fill their gaps, students with OFAs are required to participate in tutoring activities organized by the University and to pass a final assessment. Any additional learning requirements must be met within the first year of the programme, otherwise the student's career will be halted (by February 2023).

For the Bachelor's degree programme in Philosophy, OFAs are assigned to candidates who scored less than 25/50 in the first three sections of the TOLC-SU self-assessment test (the English section is not taken into consideration). Learn more on the TOLC-SU test on the University website - TOLC Cisia Test page. For more information on the TOLC-SU test structure and syllabus, including exercise examples, visit the Cisia website.
For students transferring to the Philosophy programme, who are admitted to the first year and who have taken the non-selective, self-assessment TOLC-SU test, any OFAs will be assigned based on the test score.

Students with SLDs/disabilities wishing to apply for accommodations please contact SLD/disability services and submit the required documentation. Once the office has granted the application, the student will notify the OFA tutor, who will provide the required accommodations.
