Application for Internal Transfer

Internal Transfer of Studies within HKU Business School by Current Students


Only non-final year students may apply for transfer between programmes within HKU Business School, which, if approved, will take effect from the First Semester of the following academic year. Students shall seek advice from their Faculty Academic Adviser, Programme Director and/or Academic Adviser at the Academic Advising Office before making an application.


While programme transfer is discouraged, students who, after thorough consideration, wish to pursue another programme of the School may apply to transfer between programmes within the School. Please note, however, that programme transfer is not guaranteed as applications are subject to consideration and approval on an individual merit basis, as well as the availability of places. It is therefore not advisable for students to make any changes to their study plan under their current curriculum prior to the application for a programme transfer. For students who have been granted approval for their intra-Faculty programme transfer application, they are not normally allowed to switch back to their original programme or transfer to another programme within the School again during their entire period of study. 


Note: HKU Business School students who wish to transfer to programmes offered by another Faculty of the University and students of other Faculties who wish to transfer to the programmes offered by the School should visit the following website of the Academic Support and Examinations Section of the Registry for application details: ("Home" > "Internal Transfer of Studies") and submit their application through the Academic Services Office by e-mail.




Applicants’ previous public examination results prior to admission to the University, academic performance in the current curriculum at HKU, reasons for transfer of studies, and interview performance (if applicable) will be taken into consideration in evaluating the internal transfer application. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis.




Application for internal transfer of studies within HKU Business School in the First Semester of 2021-2022 is now open. Applicants shall submit their application online via the following link:


The application deadline is June 4, 2021 (Friday), Hong Kong Time.  Late application will NOT be accepted.


Each student can only submit one application for consideration and any duplicate application submitted to the School Office will not be processed. No interview will be required under normal circumstances. Applicants will be notified of the application result in around early August 2021.


Arrangements for courses taken before internal programme transfer


The University is now reviewing the existing arrangements for internal programme transfer. Successful applicants will be informed of the revised policy pertaining to courses taken before internal transfer in due course.
