Social Science Faculty Adopts Dual-mode Admission

previouspausenext

To tie in with the ‘3+3+4’ academic structure, the Faculty of Social Science will introduce a broad-based admission scheme to allow students to experience different social science disciplines in Year 1 before deciding on the most suitable major programme with guidance and advice from the Faculty. No quota will be set for a particular programme and students do not need to compete against each other for their desired programme. Meanwhile, programme-based admission will be adopted in parallel with broad-based admission to offer greater flexibility for students. The Faculty will also launch two new interdisciplinary programmes—’urban studies’ and ‘global economics and finance’—to nurture future social leaders and professionals in global economics and finance.

The Faculty will admit a total of 89 students for the 2012 entry via broad-based admission, allowing them to take various basic courses in Year 1, including at least three Faculty Package courses offered by different departments/schools at the Faculty. Associate deans and teachers from various departments/schools at the Faculty will serve as academic advisers to provide personal advice and guidance for students on academic problems and programme selection. Students will choose the most appropriate major programmes in Year 2.
