Programme Transfer

Students may change from their current programme of study to another of the same level. If approved, the change will take effect from the following semester/year. According to the Academic Regulations for Taught Postgraduate Degrees, a student's previous period of study before the programme transfer comes into effect will be counted in the calculation of the student's maximum period of study.

How to Apply

Applications for programme transfer are processed twice a year, normally in early November (for transfer to be effective in Semester B of the current academic year) and early March (for transfer to be effective in Semester A of the next academic year). 

The application period for programme transfers to be effective in Semester B 2017/18 is between 1 November 2017 (Wednesday) and 21 November 2017 (Tuesday).  Students who wish to transfer to another programme may apply by completing an application form that can be obtained from the SGS Taught Postgraduate Student Records Service Counter or downloaded here.

Students may submit the completed application form(s), by post or in person to the SGS Taught Postgraduate Student Records Service Counter, together with the required fees payment.

For non-local students, any transfer of programme approved by the University would be sent to the Hong Kong SAR Immigration Department for final endorsement before the transfer or the change comes into effect.

Fees Chargeable

The application fee for each programme transfer application is HK$100 (non-refundable).
