DegreeWorks is a new web-based tool that CityU adopted in 2010/11 for academic advising and degree audit. DegreeWorks matches a student’s academic record against the degree requirements. It offers a user-friendly interface that helps students learn easily any outstanding courses and requirements and helps them plan their studies. It also facilitates communication between students and Programme Leaders/Academic Advisors, and helps staff members monitor the students' progress more easily.
The implementation of DegreeWorks is by phases. In 2011/12, all students from professional doctorate programmes (admitted from 2009 onwards) can assess this tool. In 2012/13, this tool is available to all students from taught postgraduate programmes (admitted from 2012 onwards).
No. Registration, including prerequisite checks, will continue to be handled through the regular registration system.
