About Course Selection
Yes, students can change their course selection during the add/drop period of the respective term. Please refer here for the term’s add/drop period.
Please refer to the study scheme for the graduation requirements. Students are required to complete 24 units (8 courses) for graduation. We strongly advise that you should not enroll in more courses than the number required. Kindly note that each course has a limited quota, other students will not be able to register or add/drop enough courses if you occupy unnecessary seats.
Closed (quota is full) courses will open to students on the waitlist during the add/drop period of each term. Students wishing to enroll in a closed (quota is full) course should submit a request via CUSIS to join the waitlist, course enrollment will be handled via CUSIS on a first-come-first-served basis if course quota is released or adjusted.
Enrollment is not available via CUSIS. Enrollment of CHES5201/CHES5202 is subject to screening and your performance in Term 1. Please refer to course outline for details.
Enrollment in Chinese studies-related courses offered by other Programmes/Department is subject to approval by the Programme Director and consent of the Programmes/ Department responsible. Students interested in non-CHES courses are not able to enroll in the course directly via CUSIS, students should ensure the lecturer of that course agrees on their participation and submit an application to the MA in Chinese Studies Programme Office during the first week of each Term.
Students will not be approved to enroll in credit bearing non-CHES language courses. Students interested in enrolling in non-credit bearing language courses can refer to Yale Chinese Language Centre for details.
The CUSIS function “Enroll by My Requirements” or “Manage Course” may confuse students, because it may show that course enrollment records do not fulfill graduation requirements even if students have already enrolled in one required course and seven elective courses. Students should find there is a note “this is a system generated report and is for reference only”. The CUSIS system is not able to recognize the stream specification of individual courses, therefore the system generated message could not reflect the real case. What students need to do is to ensure that you have followed our study scheme and stream specification of courses in order to select courses.
The annual tuition fees are payable by two equal installments. The tuition fee should be settled by the end of September and end of January for Term 1 and Term 2 respectively. The Finance Office will send a notification to students two weeks prior to the payment due date. The HKD$40,000 deposit paid upon acceptance of the admission offer will be offset against the first installment of the tuition fee. Please refer here for payment methods.
Our programme is a one-year full time programme. The expected graduation date of the 2022/23 cohort is 31 July 2023.
