Credit Accumulation & Transfer



Credit Accumulation and Transfer Policy stipulates that the maximum number of credits of advanced standing and/or credit transfer is 120 credits, and that to be eligible to be considered for award of a first degree, a student must:


(i)  Complete a minimum of two semesters of study at this University; and

(ii) Accumulate, through study at this University or from transfer of credits, at least half the number of credits of the degree curriculum normally required for award of the degree (such that students admitted directly to the third year of a 4-year curriculum may elect to transfer up to 60 credits for studies undertaken on overseas exchange and complete the remaining 60 credits at the University).



Associate Degree or Higher Diploma holders or undergraduates on transfer from other universities admitted to study the BSc programme may be granted up to 24 credits (for Associated Degree holders) or 18 credits (for Higher Diploma holders) of advanced standing for Common Core Courses and 6 credits of advanced standing for Chinese language. The maximum number of advanced standing credits granted (including disciplinary courses) are 120. Application for granting of advanced standing credits is considered individually.
