Applicants who do not wish to pursue a full programme of study at the University but are interested in taking courses on a short-term basis (less than 1 academic year) may apply for admission as visiting students to take selected course(s) and be assessed as determined by the course-offering unit(s). Visiting students will be admitted only if the relevant course-offering units are satisfied with their academic ability and if there are places available in the lecture groups for the courses concerned.
The University’s medium of instruction and assessment is English, unless otherwise specified for a particular course.
Visiting students can apply to the Academic Regulations and Records Office for testimonial or academic transcripts.
Tuition fees are charged on a credit basis, with each course normally carrying three credit units. The fees for courses offered at the Bachelor’s degree level are as follows.
|Local Applicants (HK$)||Non-Local Applicants (HK$)|

Upon acceptance of an offer of admission, applicants will be required to pay the tuition fees in full. Tuition fees are usually non-refundable and non-transferable.
The University reserves the right to cancel any course, in which case any tuition fees paid will be refunded.
