Abstract

We are at the early introduction phase of the 4-year degree implementation. The university will begin to admit students into the mini-version of the 4-year undergraduate degree starting from 2010/11 by early introducing the 4-year curriculum in designated undergraduate programmes. By Summer 2012, all the current undergraduate degree programmes under the 3-year structure will be converted into the 4-year curriculum.

The transition to the 4-year degree implementation will have a great impact on the operations of academic and administrative units throughout the university. It is necessary for the whole university community to keep abreast of the monumental change in the undergraduate curriculum. The Office of the Provost will present the latest development in the undergraduate degree curriculum in this Information Sharing Session. Issues such as curriculum requirements, arrangements for foundation-year students and senior-year entry, validation and approval procedure during programme conversion etc. will be discussed at the session.
