    The teaching method in AUD is interactive and learner centric. The pedagogy comprises lectures, tutorials, lab classes, field work, workshops and seminars.

    The School of Undergraduate Studies follows a mandatory attendance policy. Students are expected to attend all learning situations. The penalties for low attendance are applied in the form of ‘grade cuts’ based on a sliding scale of attendance shortfall.

    Assessment is continuous, with regular feedback. The aim of continuous assessment is to ensure that the work done during the semester carries more weight than a single end-semester examination.

    The medium of instruction at AUD is English. The university provides a range of support systems for English language education through its Centre for English Language Education. Mentoring is an important feature of all programmes in AUD.
