Academic Advising

Highlights of Relevant Academic Regulations (ARs)


Each student is required to meet in person with his/her academic adviser to consult him/her on his/her programme of studies at least once a term, including one meeting before the specific course registration session, if any. If a student is on overseas/ Mainland exchange studies, he/she is required to seek advice from his/her academic adviser through other means. For other exceptional circumstances under which a student is unable to meet the academic adviser in person, approval has to be sought from the Programme Director or Head of Department concerned for other arrangements.
