Minor Programmes under 4-year System

In addition to a Major Programme, a student admitted to the 4-year system in 2012 or after may register for one or two Minor Programme(s). The following Minor Programmes are offered:

The registration for a Minor Programme should be done by the end of the add/drop period in the first term of the final year of study. Normally a Minor Programme requires students to take 15 credits of courses. No double counting of course credits is allowed (except for students specially approved to have double Majors).

A student may use the credits assigned for free electives in the curriculum of his/her registered programme of studies to take courses leading to a Minor Programme. Using free electives leading to fulfillment of requirements of a Minor Programme is not a double counting of course credits.

While courses in a Minor Programme can be granted credit transfer/course exemption and recognised for fulfillment of curriculum requirements of the Minor Programme, normally a student may not be granted credit transfer/course exemption for more than 50% of the required number of credits for the Minor Programme.

A student who, upon graduation, has successfully fulfilled the requirements specified in the curriculum of the Minor Programme(s) for which he/she has registered will have the title of his/her Minor Programme(s) indicated in his/her transcripts.
