Co-curricular Learning

A1

Yes, students from any year and major are welcome to register for CCL events.

A2

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.

A3

Yes, you are welcome to join CCL events though you have no CCL requirement.

A4

For all freshmen, you will need to complete at least 8 CCL items by the end of the 4th semester of your studies at HKBU. Senior-year intake students may have different requirements. Please refer to the “Requirement” page on CCL website or the General Education Office website for details.

A5

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

A6

Some events do not need registration. For those that require registration, the organiser has the final decision whether to accept walk-ins and/or take their attendance after considering the venue, quota, nature or the arrangement of the event. You are strongly recommended to register for such events to secure your seat.

A7

This is a block-out timeslot for you to freely attend any CCL programmes or events, organised by the Office of Student Affairs, departments, units or offices, at your own choice and interests, so there is no designated location for this class.

A8

Yes, but not as many as in the semester time. You are strongly recommended to join the CCL events during term teaching time so as to fulfill the CCL requirement on time.

A9

You can review your CCL attendance records on the Student Learning Experience System (SLES). Please allow 10 working days for updates after the event or 4 weeks in the case of eCourses organised by Counselliing and Development Centre (CDC), Office of Student Affairs (SA).

A10

No. You may also attend any activity or event organised by other departments and offices which has been recognised as CCL (also known as “CCL-recognised” activities) to fulfill your CCL requirement.

A11

There may be specific rules in CCL unit calculation for some of the CCL events, such as Convocation and Honorary University Fellowship Conferment Ceremony, Athletic Meet, Aquatic Meet, Library Learning Events, eCourses provided by Counselling and Development Centre, etc. Please refer to the Notes in the page of CCL Record for details.

As for the CCL record shown on SLES, there is a lapse of time of 1 day between confirmed attendance and CCL fulfilment status because the calculation of CCL fulfilment is processed overnight. In other words, the total of the CCL units completed and the fulfilment status will be updated on the next day after a CCL unit is confirmed.

A12

Please contact the organiser for any updates or correction. The contact person or method can be found in the event details of the respective events on CCL website. In the case of eCourses organised by Counselling and Development Centre (CDC), Office of Student Affairs (SA) and other online modules, the CCL record is usually updated monthly and may take 3-4 weeks to show.

A13

Some CCL events require registration while some do not. For those that need registration, please enrol in the events according to the instruction specified by the organiser. Such instruction can be found under each CCL event's details page. You may also refer to the “How to Register” page on CCL website for details.
