  2. The academic qualification must be gained within the recent 5 years upon application. 

Module exemption may be granted to both accredited and non-accredited programmes at degree and Hong Kong sub-degree levels as well as accredited conversion programmes.

  2. taking the relevant subject(s) corresponding to the non-exempted module(s) in one or more of the Institute's accredited programmes (the Program Study route)

The list of Institute's accredited programmes can be found here: Accredited sub-degree programmes / Accredited degree programmes / Accredited conversion programmes.

 

Important points to note for applying module exemption

  1. Application for module exemption has to be submitted in one go.  No subsequent application based on the same qualification(s) would be accepted.  Additional exemption is only available for a different qualification submitted thereafter.

  2. For those module(s) that have been enrolled under the QP Examination route, exemption cannot be claimed even though the subject(s) relevant to the module(s) has been completed by Program Study route afterwards.

  3. The maximum exemption fee is capped at five modules if respective module exemptions are ascribed to an accredited programme.  Exemption fee for each module is required if respective module exemption is ascribed to a non-accredited programme.  The amount of exemption fee can be found here.
