A high administrative court yesterday ruled in favor of National Chengchi University after a student filed an administrative lawsuit against the school for withholding her diploma. The law student was kept from graduating because she was protesting against the school's policy of setting English proficiency requirements for graduates, and refused to present her proficiency certificates. She says she will appeal the ruling. This fifth-year law department National Chengchi University student Lai Yi-ling was unhappy at the threshold requirement for English to graduate. She refused to pay for the English assessment and so still has not been able to obtain a graduation certificate. ==LAI YI-LING National Chengchi University student == The university's set foreign language standard just rules that we should give a set of marks, but previously, the university did not offer any education related to taking an exam in this, there was no English education, that's illegal. Lai thinks that having an international outlook has nothing to do with English ability and even says the graduation threshold for English is not in the university exams and so it should not form part of the requirement for graduation and so has filed a petition and administrative litigation. However, the Taipei High Court decided that the university has autonomy over the design of courses and the graduation requirements and it was not illegal to do so. At the same time, the university in accordance with requirements has to verify results, and if these do not meet graduation conditions, then it is reasonable not to send a graduation certificate. == WANG WEN-CHIEH Sec-Gen. NCCU== Within the scope of our autonomous regulations, there are some thresholds for graduation, including 128 study points and so on, we are very happy to see the court's verdict on our basic requirements for graduation. ==LEE YAN-YI Dir-Gen, Dept. Higher Education, Ministry of Education== If you want to set a level to raise students' abilities then there must be appropriate supporting measures, including remedial teaching for students or the university must establish a more complete education environment. The university said that it respects the rights of those involved to bring legal action and the university has autonomy in its constitution to assess the students' study and conduct, and set thresholds, but was also happy to see an affirmation of its requirements. Lai said, she will continue to appeal.
