Residence Requirement

Residence provides students with an opportunity to become immersed in the intellectual environment of the University. Also included in the residence are periods during which students’ research requires off-campus field or non-PolyU laboratory work.

Despite of the mode of study (i.e. full-time or part-time), the residence requirement for an MPhil degree is two regular semesters; and that for a PhD degree is three regular semesters if a relevant research Master’s degree is earned prior to entering the programme, but four regular semesters if it is not.

All research postgraduate students must fulfil the residence requirement before thesis submission.
