When students enroll in the Vietnam-French Community of Belgium Master Programs, they should conduct themselves in a manner that is compatible with:

* the Laws and Regulations of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam;
* the Regulations of the National Economics University and of the Université Libre de Bruxelles;
* the Regulations of the Vietnam-French Community of Belgium Master Programs.

In a community of learning, willful disruption of the educational process, dishonesty, violation of the laws, and interference with the rights of others cannot be tolerated. The two universities retain the rights and the power to maintain order within the universities and to exclude those who are disruptive to the educational process.
To that end, the Programs Management has established the following regulations and policies, which apply to all students of the programs.

1.1 Payment & Refund
a. Payments for tuition can be made either in cash or by transfer to NEU Bank Account. If students pay in cash, they must arrange the payment to the Department of Planning and Accounting during working time of NEU.

b. Students are responsible to make payment for tuition in time.

c. If students do not make the payment of their tuition fee in time they are supposed to withdraw themselves from the Program.

d. Students are responsible for arranging payments other than tuition as per the program’s notifications with justification.

e. The Program’s refund policy is applied for the cases when a student cannot execute/complete his/her enrollment due to justifiable reasons.

f. The refunded amount will be decided on the basis of time and the number of courses taken and/or completed by the student. Students must send a written request for refund to the Faculty. The refund will be made within 4 (four) weeks after students have cleared all their responsibilities to the Program.

1.2 Examination
a. There are two examination sessions for each subject. Students are eligible to attend both sessions.
In case of not being able to attend the exam, students have to send a written notice to the Faculty at least 3 days prior to the examination date.

b. Those students who submit request not to take the 1st exam session and those who have the mark under the minimum will be automatically present in the list of students taking the 2nd session of the exam. Others should register for the 2nd session of the exam if desire.

c. For those students who attend both examination sessions, the mark of the second session will be taken as the final result of the subject.

d. On the examination date, 30-minute late will be considered as no-excuse absence.

e. Students are provided with examination booklets for their work and rough papers for their preparation. They can bring in pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, markers and calculator without letter keyboard.

f. During the examination time, students are not allowed:

* To use calculators with letter keyboard, dictionaries, hand phones;
* To use study materials if forbidden;
* To borrow stationeries from others;
* To copy other’s work or talk with other students;
* To leave the room; and
* To terminate the exam session before it reaches half of the exam time.

g. All enquiries related to the examination questions should be addressed to exam supervisors. However, it should be stressed that the role of exam supervisors is to supervise, not to explain the exam questions, so students should ask only when it’s really necessary.

h. Exam time has to be respected. When the exam time ends, all students have to stop writing and pass their exam papers toward the aisle. All students have to hand their exam papers even if they are blank.


2.1 Attendance and Attention

a. Students are required to attend all lectures and tutorial sessions due to the nature of the subject’s contents and the Program’s pedagogy.

Students, who are absent without reason for more than 25% of a subject’s lectures and tutorial sessions, are not allowed to take both sessions of the exam of that subject.

b. Students should be present in class on time. In case of being late for 15 minutes or more students should stay outside the class and wait for the short break to enter the class.

c. Hand phones should be turned off during the class and exam sessions.

d. Students are required to respect the deadlines of their assignment submission. Late assignments will be subject to penalty set by the instructor.

e. Students have rights to use classrooms, computer laboratory and library with all facilities available under the regulations of those offices. Thus, they are responsible for maintaining the working conditions as well as the order and tidiness of the rooms and equipment.

f. In case of finding equipment not working or not in good condition as it should be, students should notify immediately to the Program Coordinator or the Faculty of International Education.

g. All the students have access to the library of Faculty of International Education, which is open in the morning of working days. Books and reading materials in the library are limited to reference only, therefore students have to read in the library. Otherwise they can have the librarian make photocopy of the needed sections at their own expenses.

h. Students are provided with basic learning materials. Each student will assume to get one set of materials each delivery, taking no more than needed and no other materials than those materials they are advised to get.
