Cross-Institutional GE Course Enrollment Scheme for Undergraduate Students

Starting from academic year 2015-16, Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has launched the cross-institutional General/Gateway Education (GE) course enrollment scheme, which aims to enrich students’ experience in GE learning and widen their horizons through enrolling in GE courses offered by both institutions, benefitting from each other’s expertise.

Quota Under this scheme, each institution reserves 50 seats for use by the partner institution in each academic year, capping the maximum number of student cross-registering in each semester to 25. Each student can register for a maximum of 1 GE course at the host institution in each semester.

Eligibility All full-time UGC-funded undergraduates of the 4-Year curriculum of HKBU and CityU are eligible to apply. Students are strongly encouraged to take advantages of this scheme.
