Applicants who do not wish to pursue a full programme of study at the University may apply for admission as a visiting student to attend select course(s) and take the assessment as defined in the programme scheme. Visiting students will be admitted only if the relevant School/Department is satisfied with their academic ability and if there are places available in the lecture groups for the course(s) concerned.
The University's medium of instruction and assessment is English, unless otherwise specified for a specific course.
Visiting students can apply to the Academic Regulations and Records Office for a testimonial or academic transcript.
Tuition fees are charged on a credit basis, with a course normally carrying 3 credit units. The fees for courses offered in 2012/13 are as follows:
|Courses at Bachelor's Degree level (HK$)||Courses at Associate Degree level (HK$)|
|HK$2,800 per credit||HK$2,100 per credit|
Upon accepting an offer of admission, applicants will be required to pay the course fees in full. All tuition fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
If a course is offered at both the Bachelor's and Associate degree levels, then the fee levied will be that for a Bachelor's degree course.
The University reserves the right to cancel any course, in which case any fees already paid will be refunded.
An academic year comprises Semester A, Semester B and a Summer Term.
