A Specialisation provides students with the opportunity to learn more about a particular sub-discipline within their main discipline. It is very useful for students who plan to enter specific career tracks upon their graduation.
A Specialisation is a coherent programme of study that will require, from AY2008/2009, 24 MCs of distinctive modules within a Major. For students admitted prior to AY2008/2009, a Specialisation typically requires between 16 to 20 MCs of distinctive modules within a Major.
The Specialisation will be noted in the student's transcript.
