Cross-institutional Course Enrolment Scheme

To enhance the opportunities for research postgraduate (RPg) students to have access to courses available at local institutions in Hong Kong, the eight UGC-funded universities (CityU, CUHK, EdUHK, HKBU, HKU, HKUST, LU and PolyU) entered into an agreement to set up mechanisms to allow RPg students to enroll in courses offered by sister institutions.

Course Enrollment

HKBU RPg students may take any cross-institutional courses subject to your supervisors' approval. To enroll in the courses, students should complete the following forms and submit them to the Graduate School:

 

For students applying for courses offered by The University of Hong Kong, please provide the course outline/syllabus indicating the number of contact hours.

For students applying for courses offered by City University of Hong Kong, please also submit copies of transcript(s) of your current study record and all your previous academic qualifications obtained. 

In case you wish to drop the enrolled course, you have to complete the form and submit it to the Graduate School. For more details, please refer to the Application Procedures.

 

Transfer of Units

The course(s) you have taken at the sister institutions will be transferred automatically upon fulfillment of the grading requirement at the end of the semester. It is important to note the equivalence of unit/credit to be transferred.  In most cases, 1 unit/credit equals 13 contact hours. For more details, please refer to section 7.4 of our Student Handbook. If you have enquiries about unit transfer, please contact the GS at hkbu_rpg@hkbu.edu.hk.
