|CREDIT TRANSFER & COURSE EXEMPTION|
Students may earn credit units of a core course without taking it if they have taken an equivalent course in a completed postgraduate programme from a recognized university. Hence, students granted credit transfer may be able to shorten the duration of their studies.
in general, the equivalent course has to be taken within a reasonable time frame
a maximum of 9 credit units from postgraduate programmes completed at CityU or any other recognized universities; and
at least 21 credit units have to be completed from the postgraduate courses offered by the Department of Economics and Finance
Students may be exempted from taking a core course; however no credit unit is transferred. Hence, students will have to take another course to satisfy the 30-credit-units requirement of the programme. In addition, choice of course substitution is subject to the approval of the Programme Leader/Director.
substantial knowledge in a subject area (e.g. major in an undergraduate programme or professional qualifications like CFA) is required for course exemption
Application for credit transfer/course exemption must be made in the first semester after enrollment in the programme (the deadline will be announced by the University). All applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis and have to be approved by the Programme Leader/Director.
Note: Credit transfer and course exemption are applicable to core courses only. Elective courses will not be considered.
