Postgraduate Courses

  1. Each course is identified by a course code which comprises a four-letter code followed by a four-digit number code.
    • The letter code denotes either the area/program of study or the course offering department. Course descriptions are arranged in alphabetical order of letter codes.
    • The first digit of the number code indicates the academic level of the course while the last three digits represent a departmental coding series.
      5 = Postgraduate courses
      6 = Postgraduate courses usually in the form of seminars, independent studies, reading courses or master research
      7 = Postgraduate courses usually in the form of doctoral seminars or research
  2. Each course is assigned a course vector which indicates the number of instructional hours required and credits to be earned. The course vector is presented in the form of [L-T-Lab:C] where
    L = Lecture hours per week
    T = Tutorial, seminar or recitation hours per week
    Lab = Laboratory or field study hours per week
    C = Number of course credits
  3. Courses listed here will be offered according to resources available in each term and academic year. Details of course offerings in a particular term will be announced during the course registration period.
