Please also note the following information:

Late applications will not be considered.
- Students will be notified of the application result via email directly by PolyU normally before classes commence. Acceptance of students is at our discretion and is subject to availability, student quotas and other factors pertinent to the subjects.
- Students approved to study PolyU subjects will be officially registered for the subjects and are required to participate fully in the subjects, including completing the coursework and examinations.
- An official letter will be issued to students for identification purposes. However, students are requested to use their Joint University Librarians Advisory Committee (JULAC) library card to access our library and they are not allowed to use the facilities of our University other than those directly associated with their subjects.
- Grades (A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D or F) will be assigned to students on completing the subjects, and a transcript will be sent to the student's home institution.
- The decision as to how the grades should be used is at the sole discretion of the home institution.
- Students may drop a registered subject within two weeks after the beginning of a semester, i.e., 9 to 21 January 2023 for Academic Year 2022/23 Semester Two.
- After the add/drop period, requests to withdraw from subjects will not be considered unless the withdrawal is due to extenuating circumstances beyond the control of the students. Students requesting to withdraw from subjects after the add/drop period will be required to provide PolyU with full justification for making the application. The request should be submitted to PolyU via the student's home institution. The Academic Registry of PolyU will process the subject withdrawal request. Once approval is given, a Grade 'W' is recorded as the grade for the withdrawn subject.
- Applications to audit postgraduate subjects at PolyU under this scheme will not be accepted.
- Students from other UGC-funded institutions who have enrolled in postgraduate subjects offered by PolyU are subject to all of the prevailing academic regulations governing postgraduate studies of the University. This will not lead to a degree or other awards from PolyU. Students should familiarise themselves with these academic regulations. For details, please refer to the Academic Regulations Governing Enrolment in PolyU Subjects by Students of other UGC-funded Institutions.
Note: 'Home' institution refers to the institution where a student is taking his/her research postgraduate programme.
