Changes to Course Selection

(a) You must obtain prior General Office approval if your intended plan of study differs in any way from the programme requirements of your programme and instructions given for online course selection. Write before 31 August 2020 to Ms Daisy Lai (LLMMCL@hku.hk), explaining your reasons for requesting a change with a study plan, and citing your full name, student number, programme title and mode of study. Example: Chan Tai Man John, 3035123456, LLM PT2.

(b) If a course is full and you are unable to enrol into it (for LLM(MEL) students also see Note 1 below), you may request to be waitlisted for that course by sending a completed Application for Course(s) Amendment to Ms Estella Ng (elwng@hku.hk) before the first class of the course. The names on the waitlist will be recorded on a first-come-first-serve basis. The waitlist will be closed and no further names added if too many names are already on the waitlist. Ms Ng will process your request if a place becomes available. If your name remains on the waitlist, you must attend the first class, add your name to the attendance sheet, and introduce yourself to the instructor.
Note 1 [Applicable to LLM(MEL students taking SOWK and CMED courses]: Any student who has not yet formally enrolled in the course by the time classes begin should contact the course teacher to ask about the arrangement regarding attendance.

(c) You may change your selection and finalise your course enrolment by sending a completed Application for Course(s) Amendment to Ms Estella Ng (elwng@hku.hk) during the add‒drop period of each semester or intensive course (but see Note 2 below). Ms Ng will process your request if a place becomes available.
Note 2: Dropping an intensive course in mid‒semester means that you may be unable to make up lost credits in that same semester, and will need to take an extra course in the semester that follows.

(d) The General Office deals with hundreds of queries during the add‒drop period and may be unable to respond immediately to your request. If you receive no reply to a submitted Application for Course Amendments form, you may assume that the request has been accepted. If your name is missing from a course attendance list, then when classes begin simply inform the course instructor and add your name to the list. 

(e) No amendments to course enrolment will be permitted after the add‒drop period.
