New course numbering system

From 2015, all course information can be searched for on the “Web Syllabus” based on subject and level. This system, which had already been utilized for organizing courses in the School of International Liberal Studies, allows students to create a structured list of courses, using the course codes as a reference, based on the courses’ description in the syllables and their individual interests.

This system will allows users to understand how courses are distributed across individual schools and allow international students to easily select courses and transfer credits from and to overseas universities.
