Course Registration

FS4005 Overseas Internship Scheme

Students accepting the OIS offer will be registered on a 3-CU course FS4005 Overseas Internship Scheme by Co-op Centre in summer. EE students will use IAS to fulfil Engineering Training II and registration will be done by EE Department. ACE students will be registered on either FS4005 or an ACE course as advised by ACE Department. The status of FS4005 in a programme major or how each major recognizes it depends on the major requirements. Any related queries should be directed to Department.

Beware of exceeding the maximum credit limit:

Please note that the maximum number of credit units permitted for a degree is as follows:

  • 4-year degree: 144 credit units (AR 4.1)
  • Advanced Standing I: 114 credit units (AR 6.4.1)
  • Advanced Standing II: 84 credit units (AR 6.5.1)

Students who have completed the maximum credit units permitted as mentioned above cannot register for further courses in subsequent semesters/terms except for (a) those pursuing a double major or double degree paying the extra credits exceeding the above maximum credit limit on a self-financed basis; or (b) students who have been granted special approval to exceed the maximum credit limit due to their change of home major. For any queries on this issue. Please check with Academic Regulations and Records Office (ARRO) and/or students' parent department.

If students will exceed the maximum credit limit upon addition of FS4005 (3 CUs), they should seek advice from Co-op Centre and Department before they apply.
