Course information and restrictions

Most fields of study, including Architecture, Commerce Specific, and Science Co-op.

For the Faculty of Business, please see the following website for more information:

http://www.fbe.hku.hk/

Also note: the maximum course loaded for exchange students in FBE is 30 credits, and the minimum is 18 credits (in general 6 credits per courses), and 50% courses have to be enrolled within FBE (i.e. if a student taking 5 courses, 3 must be FBE courses and 2 can be electives, and language course is not counted into course load).

Full course load information

A course at HKU usually has 6 HKU credits (3 credits for broadening courses). A full load is 30 credits for one semester (60 credits for a year) but you might also take a minimum of 24 credits to a maximum of 36 credits each semester, subject to the approval of the Dean/Head of the Department. Within each semester's full load of 30 credits, more than half of them must come from one single faculty. That means you should pick three courses from one faculty while the remainding can be chosen from other faculties. All courses, except those offered by the Department of Chinese, are taught in English.
