An example of study path

Here is an example of study path for the Science Master Class programme.   There are 7 Intensive Majors available for students to choose from for their undergraduate studies, namely Biological Sciences (Intensive), Chemistry (Intensive), Ecology & Biodiversity (Intensive), Geology (Intensive), Mathematics (Intensive), Molecular Biology & Biotechnology (Intensive) and Physics (Intensive), together with the university education and elective courses.  In addition to study of disciplinary-based Intensive Majors and special tutorials by Grand Masters exclusive for this programme, an array of opportunities in our flagship Young Science Scheme (YSS) including entrance scholarship, Cambridge-track, Summer Research Fellowship, Overseas Research Fellowship and International exchange studies are also available to the students. Note that the Cambridge-track is only available to Majors in Natural Sciences disciplines.  Courses such as research ethics, research postgraduate course and research project, will be offered to students to enhance their frontier scientific knowledge and research skills.  The study comprises two degrees, with 240 credits for the BSc degree and 63 credits for the MRes one, making up 303 credits in total. Students are usually expected to spend the summer semester in Year 4 or the first semester in Year 5 to complete the research project for MRes.
