Do students need to defer studies?


For the Recommended Double Major Pairs, as long as you follow the suggested study plan and complete the courses accordingly, normally no deferral is required. You are advised to consult programme leaders in each department on your study plans. Please note that students will still need to bear their own responsibilities in fulfilling the requirements the two majors.




Can I declare a second major with CB which is not one of the Recommended Double Major Pairs through ARRO?


Yes, you can. The difference between the “recommended pairs” and “non-recommended pairs” is that, suggested study plans are provided for your reference and you can enjoy pre-registration of classes for the former. You can still apply for a second major outside the non-recommended pairs according to the stipulated application periods through ARRO.

Please also note that course pre-registration will only be done for 2020-admitted BBAU4 students (Class of 2024) who declare the recommended major combinations in the application round of June through ARRO.


Can I declare a second major if my home major is not confirmed yet?


You are advised to declare a second major after the major allocation results are released.



Can I declare a second major in the application round of June if I wish to change my home major later?


You are advised to declare a second major in the next application round after your new home major is confirmed.
