Pre-registered Courses
(for new students only)

Newly admitted taught postgraduate students enrolled in their first term will automatically be registered on courses which are required by their programme of study, except for certain courses which have to be selected by the students concerned. Students who are required to select courses will be informed by the Graduate School.

All pre-registered courses will be shown in the BUniPort about two weeks before the term starts.

How does Course Adding/Dropping work?

  • Adding and/or Dropping courses is allowed during the regular Add/drop period (please refer to the Academic Calendar for the exact dates). Students can complete the add/drop procedures via the BUniPort. Upon completion of the course add/drop procedures in the system, the enrolment record and timetable will be updated immediately. Please refer to the "Demo for Course Adding/Dropping" here.
  • Please take the following steps to access the platform:  

     1. Login to the BUniPort

Course Early Registration 
for current students only)

Starting from the second term, students will be invited by email to participate in the Courses Early Registration exercise for the selection of core and/or elective courses.

Preparing your Course Early Registration 

  • Each study programme has its own graduation requirements, in terms of the number of units required for its prescribed categories of courses (e.g. core, elective, project). Please make sure that you fulfil such requirements when selecting/registering your courses. In this connection, please consult the administration office of your study programme, if needed. Please also pay attention to the following before you start your course registration:

     1. Check carefully your study plan for the number and the category of courses to be taken. 

     2. If you failed a course in the previous study year, you must repeat it in the coming study year. If the failed course is an elective course and you would like to take another available course to replace it, please seek approval from the programme office first. 

     3. If you have any questions on your study plan, please consult your programme office immediately.


How does Course Early Registration work?

  • Course Early Registration is a computerised process which is not operated on a first-come first-served basis. Upon the close of the registration period, the system will start assigning courses to students. During the process, it takes into account a number of factors, such as the students’ preference, quota limit, time conflict of selected courses, and target student groups identified by certain courses. In some cases, students may not be assigned to the courses of their preference. Therefore, you are advised to indicate your preference in the system as far as practicable. Please refer to the "Demo for Early Registration" : Part 1Part 2 ​​​​​.​
  • Please take the following steps to access the platform:  

     1. Login to the BUniPort

     2. Select "Studies" and then "My Studies"

     3. Click "Course Early Registration"

     4. Start selecting the course(s) and section(s). There is no auto-save function; you must always SAVE your entry before you exit this window.

  • The course registration result together with the class timetable will be released through the BUniPort around two weeks before the class starts. Students who fail to gain admission to some courses due to limited places are required to complete the course registration during the regular Add/drop period (please refer to the Academic Calendar for the exact dates).
