Why this Faculty Admission Policy?

Simple and Flexible
Students who wish to take any of the Science Majors only need to put 6901 Bachelor of Science in their application. Once students are admitted, they may take a range of subjects in Science before making a decision and declaring a Major before the end of the second year. Students may change Major at any time during their study, as long as the course requirements of the Major are fulfilled.

No Quota for Science Major
There is no quota for any of the Science Majors, and students may choose freely their Major of study. Some Majors may require students to have taken certain science subjects in secondary schools. Students who do not have the relevant background may be required to take certain preparatory courses before they follow the Major.

Academic Advising System
We understand that selection of Major is a very important decision for students. Some students may have already decided what Major they want to take before they enter the university, while others may want to explore multiple options before making a decision. Our academic advisers will advise students on the choice of Major, course requirements, and possible Major-Minor combination to suit their interests, ability, and career aspirations.

Second Major/Major-Minor Option in the BSc Curriculum
In addition to the primary Major for the BSc degree, students may take a second Major or a Minor to broaden their horizons outside their subject of specialisation. Second Majors and Minors are available in both Science and non-Science disciplines.
