Step 6: Select your Study Centre courses offered by the host university 

In addition to UC’s wide range of online courses, the unique benefit of UC China Study Centre is students can enrol in courses that are offered by our partner university and UC recognises credit. 

Whether you are a new or returning student, you MUST choose at least one on-campus course at the host university. This can either be credit-bearing (able to credit back to your UC qualification) or a non-credit bearing course that you are interested in.

Students should contact your Faculty Student Advisor to formalise your study plan before selecting courses at the Study Centre. This is to ensure you have the approval to cross-credit the Study Centre courses into your UC qualification.

For business students, after confirming your online study plan with student advisors, please then contact Micky Lu from UC Business School Internationalisation Team for further assistance with your offline course selection at the study centre.

Tianjin University will only offer Business relevant courses (e.g. accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing). For those courses UC will recognise credits, please refer to the 2022 S2 China Study Centre - TJU Credit. Please fill in the online form below to select your Study Centre courses.

Huazhong University of Science and Technology offers a wide range of on-campus courses that UC students can enrol in, including economics, finance, management, marketing, computer science, mathematics, statistics, biochemistry, and civil engineering. For courses UC will recognise credits, please refer to the 2021 Autumn China Study Centre - HUST credit list. The courses listed here can be used as a reference and the available course for S2 2022 will be confirmed before the Autumn semester starts in September.

Step 7: Complete your enrolment process 

Once you have filled out the course selection form mentioned in Step 6, we will be able to confirm the cross-credit arrangement with you via email.
