(a) You must access the online system during the course selection period to choose ALL your courses (LLAW, CMED, SOWK) for the entire academic year.
(a)(i) The offering of CMED courses is subject to the confirmation by the School of Public Health (SPH). The dates of semester of SPH is slightly different from that of our Department. You are suggested to double-check the course schedule of CMED for more details.
(a)(ii) The offering of SOWK courses is subject to the confirmation by the Department of Social Work and Social Administration. SOWK courses are offered in 1st and 2nd semester only.
(b) If you are a full-time LLM(MEL) student or a part-time LLM(MEL) Year 2 student, you must opt for LLAW6054 9-credit Dissertation (“the Dissertation”) or LLAW6273 Practicum Project (“the Practicum”) as your capstone course in the course selection period, and will be able to switch to the other capstone course on or before the add-drop deadline of the 1st semester. As a general rule, you will not be permitted to add or drop the Dissertation or the Practicum after add-drop deadline of the 1st semester. See here for information related to the dissertation. More information on the dissertation and the practicum will be given during the course selection briefing session.
(c) When your course choices are saved online, the system will prompt you to select up to three extra “back-up courses”. You are strongly encouraged to enter back-up course selections – most elective courses have fixed quotas, which means that the first-choice courses you have selected do not guarantee a place on those courses. If you do not select a back-up course and you are unsuccessful getting into your first-choice course, you will effectively fall to the back of the queue in terms of course selection priority.
(d) You may use the online course system to modify your choice of courses before the end of the course selection period. The General Office will begin to process enrolment requests only after the system is closed.
(e) Priority in an oversubscribed course is generally given to students who have properly registered for the course (see (c) above) and who need that course to fulfil syllabus requirements.
(f) The General Office will confirm your enrolments by email at the end of August.
