Introduction

With the objective to attract high caliber students and inspire CityU Year 1 students to raise their performance, the University has recently launched its CityU Talents Programme for implementation from the 2020 undergraduate intake. Eligible entrants will be given an offer into the UGC-funded undergraduate major plus a conditional offer for the self-financing taught postgraduate programme (“3+1/3+2 degree”).

Years 1 to 3 Students complete the undergraduate major (120 credit units) in 3 years, including a maximum of 30% of taught postgraduate courses as prescribed by the taught postgraduate programme to fulfill "Free Electives" requirement.
Year 4
(and Year 5 for MFACM)
Students continue to pursue the taught postgraduate degree as self-
financing students.
