Course Enrolment

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). All students enrolled in the University are required to register for courses each term in accordance with the study schedule of their programmes.

Please pay attention to the followings before you start your course registration:

  1. Check carefully your study schedule for the number of units required and the category of courses to be taken. 
  2. If you failed a course in the previous study, you must repeat it in the remaining study period. If you failed an elective course and would like to replace it with another available elective course, please seek approval from the programme office. 
  3. If you have any questions on your study schedule, please consult your programme office immediately.

1.    Login to the BUniPort
2.    Select "Studies" and then "My Studies"
3.    Select “My Study Schedule” or “My Graduation Requirements”

1.    Login to the BUniPort
2.    Select "Studies" and then "My Studies"
3.    Click “Course Information”
4.    Select "Postgraduate" as the course level 
5.    Select the corresponding term and academic year
6.    Click "Submit" and the list of available courses will be shown
7.    Search for the relevant course code, view the course outline, quota, timetable, pre-requisite and co-requisite requirements and/or target student information on this page (sample)  

All newly admitted taught postgraduate students are required to complete an "Academic Integrity Online Tutorial (AIOT)" in the first two months after commencement of studies; or they would be barred from registering for courses in the next term. 


Pre-registered Courses 

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

Students who are required to select courses will do so during the Course Registration Exercises

1.    Login to the BUniPort
2.    Select "Studies" and then "My Studies"
3.    Select “My Enrolment Records & Class Timetable”

Course Registration Exercises 

Students who are required to choose courses and/or course sections will be able to do so before the term begins.

There are two kinds of course registration exercises:

  1. Course Registration for Newly Admitted Taught Postgraduate Students (for newly admitted students only) 
  2. Course Early Registration (for students who will be studying their second term or beyond)

a) Course Registration for Newly Admitted Taught Postgraduate Students

Depending on the programme they study and except for the pre-registered courses, newly admitted taught postgraduate students shall choose courses and/or course sections before the first term begins. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for the exact dates. 

Students should refer to the study schedule and enrolment records to check the number of units and category of courses that should be taken for the term, and then use the Course Add/Drop function on BUniport during the period to add the course(s) as needed. Please refer to Course Add/Dropping for details of the procedure. 

b) Course Early Registration 

Starting from the second term, students who are required to choose courses and/or course sections will be invited by email to participate in the Course Early Registration exercise.

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 1; Part 2 .

 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) (sample). There is no auto-save function; you should submit 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. If any course add/drop is needed, students are required to do so during the regular Add/drop period (please refer to the Academic Calendar for the exact dates). 


Course Adding/Dropping

How does Course Adding/Dropping work?

Course adding/dropping 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 records and timetable will be updated immediately. Please refer to the "Demo for Course Adding/Dropping" here. You are reminded not to de-register the pre-registered courses which are required by your programme of study.

     1. Login to the BUniPort
     2. Select "Studies" and then "My Studies"
     3. Click "Course Add/Drop" 
     4. Check the enrolment records before exit

Adding and dropping of courses subsequent to the regular Add/drop period requires the approval of the Department/Programme. Please submit a written request to respective Department/Programme for processing.

Useful Forms

Course withdrawal applies to special cases that occur after the deadline of dropping courses. Permission to withdraw from courses after the deadline for dropping courses will only be given under exceptional circumstances, such as a student is suffering from physical, personal or academic problems, or other unforeseen circumstances deemed acceptable to the Department/Programme.

Applications should be endorsed by the course instructor and submitted to the Graduate School at least four weeks before the commencement of the term examination. The application (online form no. 'GRECW') should be submitted via BUniPort (Studies > My e-Application > Online Form > ‘Application for Course Withdrawal’).
