The Programme



Modular Structure

Courses are offered on a modular basis to allow students to focus on one area of study at a time. Normally, each module consists of 7-8 weeks including the examination week. Most core courses for full-time students will be held in the daytime either at HKU Town Center in Admiralty or on Pokfulam Main Campus. Elective and part-time classes will be held in weekday evenings,  or occasionally on Saturdays, at Admiralty Town Centre or on Main Campus. Evening classes start at 6:45pm. Classes may also be conducted at Cyberport Campus if needed. Examinations are normally on Saturdays.

Applicants can choose either the full-time or the part-time mode of study. The curriculum shall extend over a minimum of one academic year and a maximum of two academic years for full-time study, or a minimum of two academic years and a maximum of four academic years for part-time study. Full-time students normally need to take four classes each week whereas part-time students normally take two evening classes each week.


Graduation Requirements

Students are required to successfully complete twelve courses (for single concentration) or fourteen courses (for double concentration). Students who have failed a course are required to sit for a re-examination or to retake the course. If the failed course is an elective, students may choose to take another elective course as a substitute. In order to graduate, the total number of failures cannot exceed two in the entire period of study and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above must be achieved.
