TEACHING AND LEARNING
These part-time programmes are conducted with face-to-face mode of instruction. Students will receive 100% face-to-face teaching to be shared by faculty members of UC and SCE. Each trimester consists of 15 to 17 weeks. Each unit is normally taught through 39 contact hours.
Classes will be held in Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Kowloon Tong Campus or other SCE Learning Centres.
Classes will usually take place on weekday evenings, on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and Public Holidays.
Students are assumed to have access to computer and internet so as to ensure effective communication with academic/administrative staff and to facilitate learning.
The Programme follows the assessment system set by UC. Students' performance will be evaluated by a variety of assessment methods. They will, in each unit, be typically required to complete two items of continuous assessment (such as assignments and/or tests) and sit for the end of unit examination.
The Bachelor of Accounting is accredited by CPA Australia, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA).
