The Academic Registry will launch online application for semester 1, 2021-22 at 10:00 a.m. on 1 September 2021 and it will be closed at 17:00 p.m. on 17 September 2021. (As students cannot add/drop courses after 23:59 p.m. on 18 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 can submit the applications via BUniPort (Studies > My e-Application > Online Form > My Online Form).  The procedures are as follows:



  1. Submit an online application via BUniPort.
  2. Attach or upload supporting documents if necessary.
  3. Students will receive email notification about the application result once the recommendation has been made by the approver. Upon approval, students can then login BUniPort and add the course(s) online by themselves.


Note: For students who wish to apply for excess study load and register for more than 21 units, a detailed written explanation must be submitted in the online system.
