Current Student


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 entered into an agreement to set up mechanisms to allow RPg students to enrol in courses offered by sister institutions.

Course Enrolment

Students may take any cross-institutional courses subject to your supervisors' approval. To enrol in the courses, students should complete the following forms and submit them to the Graduate School at least 3 working days before individual application deadlines:


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. 


For details, please refer to the Application Procedures.


Course Withdrawal

In case you wish to drop the enrolled course, you have to complete the Course Add/Drop form and submit it to the Graduate School. 


Transfer of Units

The course(s) you have taken at the sister institutions will be transferred automatically upon fulfilment 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 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
