Occasional Student

Registration as an Occasional Student for MSc(Eng) ME Courses

In response to the rising community demand for lifelong learning opportunities, The Department is pleased to offer some of the existing courses of the MSc(Eng) in ME curriculum to non-regular/non-visiting students. To serve the purpose, these students are required to be registered as "Occasional Students" for taking the available courses on a non-credit bearing basis.

A certificate will be issued by the Department for an Occasional Student attending 75% or above of lectures and has satisfied the same assessment requirement of a MSc(Eng) course for a pass grade.  Occasional Students are not regarded as formal students of the University and have no access right to the University’s facilities, for examples, University Health Service, Libraries, Sports Centers, Laboratories etc. but are covered by the Public Liability (Insurance).

Further details are available at the following websites:
