In view of the unprecedented impact brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) is launching a 2020 Visiting Student Scheme to assist local students whose overseas study plan is affected. Admissions Requirements To qualify for admission as a 2020 visiting student at HKU, an applicant should have the educational standards in the English language and in the subjects of his or her choice which are considered adequate by the Head of the Department concerned. Students must also meet the HKU admission standard for their chosen discipline or programme in order to be eligible for the scheme. Course Selection Visiting students should select courses according to the regulations, procedures, and rules being laid down from time to time by the Faculty and the Department concerned. The number of courses selected should not normally exceed those offered to regular students of the University. More detailed information on the courses offered by the University is available on this website. Credit Transfer Applicants who are current students of other universities and who wish to seek credit transfer for the work done as visiting students of this University towards the qualification for which they are registered in their own university should produce evidence that their home university has approved the proposed courses of study.
