Characteristics of Scheme-based Admission

Students first follow a common curriculum under the Scheme.

The decision to admit a student to a Major programme will be made by the School based on the student’s choice and overall GPA of Year One study. Students will be asked to rank their choices of Major programme (from the most preferred one to the least) during semester 2 of their Year One study for the School’s consideration and approval.

The number of students admitted to BBA (Hons) in Accountancy, BBA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance and BBA (Hons) in Financial Services will be capped respectively at 60%, 40% and 40% of the number of students in the respective year.
