Credit Transfer Arrangements2

If you wish to receive credits from the International Summer School subjects, please contact the appropriate academic authorities in your home university in advance. We strongly advise you to do this BEFORE you apply for the International Summer School. Each subject carries three PolyU credits.


All international students will be provided with a transcript for free upon completion of the programme and subject to having no outstanding matters with the university.

If you are nominated by your home university, the transcript will be sent to the International Office of your home university. For other students, the transcript will be sent to the correspondence address provided. For any additional copy of transcript, application should be made to the International Summer School directly and an application fee (HK$70 per copy) will be charged.
