Co-curricular Learning

The designated period to complete the CCL requirement will be extended according to cover the semester(s) of your exchange. For example, if you are admitted to HKBU as a freshman and you will go on an exchange during the first semester of your second year, you will need to complete the CCL requirement by the end of the first semester of your third year.
Nevertheless, you are suggested to complete the requirement at your earliest possible time.

No. CCL attendance is cumulative until your graduation. Yet you are strongly recommended to fulfill the CCL requirement on time so as to avoid any delay in pre-registration for courses or graduation.
