Course Add/Drop

Adding and dropping of courses is allowed during the first 2 weeks of classes.  Students can complete the add/drop procedures online via BUniPort.


To balance the system loading, a timeslot is assigned to students for conducting course add/drop in the first few days of the add/drop period.  This will be announced via email and BUniPort.   Students are randomly assigned to the morning or afternoon session in the first semester.   In the second semester, the two groups of students of the same year will swap their timeslots for course add/drop.


Successful enrolment on the course is subject to fulfillment of all registration requirements such as pre-requisite/target students requirement, study load and availability of class quota, which can be found in BUniPort


Students may submit the following applications online via the "Online Form" function in BUniPort for course add/drop (Page location: Studies > My e-Application > Online Form > My Online Form):

For Semester 1, 2020-21, the online application system will be opened prior to the course add/drop period on 1 September 2020 and will be closed at 23:59 p.m. on 19 September 2020.  (As students cannot add/drop courses after 23:59 p.m. on 19 September, you should submit your application(s) as early as possible to give time for approvers to consider the applications and for yourself to complete course registration before the course add/drop deadline)


Students will be informed of the results via email.  Upon approval, students can login to the BUniPort to add the courses by themselves.
