  1. Warning for female students of PHE on Pregnancy:

Female students of this department are not allowed to become pregnant or deliver babies during the course of studies. Whosoever becomes pregnant spends the period of pregnancy outside the Department. There is no guarantee that as soon as you deliver of your baby, you will be immediately accepted back into the Department. This is due to the fact that even four (4) months after deliver, some women are still not strong enough to participate in rigorous physical activities which are carried out in the Department. You may therefore be more careful since you cannot eat your cake and yet have it. Students are assessed both in practical activities (skills and Techniques) and in theory. Note that neither proving ignorant nor lobbing and begging will save you especially when pregnancy sets in.
