For programmes with different fee rates for full-time and part-time enrolment, part-time fees are payable for students who convert from full-time to part-time within Instructional Week 2 of the semester. Full-time fees would be charged for conversions thereafter.
Full-time fees will be charged for conversion from part-time to full-time anytime throughout the semester. The miscellaneous student fees payable are set out here
According to the interim subsidy conversion policy for government-subsidised Graduate Coursework Programmes, students who convert their academic workload (from full-time (FT) to part-time (PT) or vice versa) will be eligible for MOE subsidy in their converted programmes as follows:
- FT to PT: Subsidy eligibility for PT programme = Normal Candidature Duration of PT programme – (Number of subsidised semesters consumed under FT programme x 2)
- PT to FT: Subsidy eligibility for FT programme = Normal Candidature Duration of FT programme – (Number of subsidised semesters consumed under PT programme / 2), rounded up.
MOE is currently reviewing the candidature transfer policy of government-subsidised graduate coursework programmes in a broader perspective. Relevant updates will be publicised when available.
