Cross-Institutional Course Enrolment Scheme

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is in a collaboration agreement with City University of Hong Kong (CityU) in a Cross-Institutional Course Enrolment Scheme.

This scheme allows mathematics students at undergraduate level of both institutes to enrol in courses offered by them. This collaboration also allows the mathematics students to benefit from the expertise available in the partner institute and also provides students with more choices of courses.
