Subsite Background

Course Descriptions (4-year System)

The descriptions of courses and information on their prerequisites/restriction are set out below. As stipulated in the Regulations Governing Undergraduate Studies, a student must take his/her own responsibility in ensuring that the requirements concerning course prerequisites, co-requisites and exclusion/restriction are met unless such are waived at the discretion of the Programme Director/Head of the Academic Unit concerned under exceptional circumstances. The student alone will be responsible for any consequences if he/she chooses to take a course contravening the requirements without special approval.

According to the Policy on Language of Instruction, apart from language courses and courses in the Chinese (CHI-coded) and Translation (TRA-coded) Departments, all courses are taught in English except otherwise specified. When Chinese is used, it will be specified in the class schedules published for each term whether it is taught in Cantonese or Putonghua.
