Important Message from College Principal - Semester 1 Teaching Arrangement 2021/22

28 Jul 2021

Dear Students,

Hope you are enjoying your summer break.  I would like to update you on our teaching arrangement for Semester 1, 2021/22.  Teaching will be conducted face-to-face (f2f) in principle.   We will follow the University’s guidelines and adopt a room capacity of 75% of the original capacity. The general principles are as follows:

  1. Delivery mode of tutorials, laboratories, practicum and field work will be f2f.
  2. Courses with nominal class size 30 or below will be conducted f2f. 
  3. For other courses, classes will be split into two groups to attend f2f classes as per schedule in Annex A. Students with the last digit of their student numbers (SID) being an odd number belong to Group A, and will attend the f2f classes in the odd teaching weeks and view recorded lectures in self-managed manner in the even teaching weeks.  Those with last digit of their SID being an even number belong to Group B, and will attend the f2f classes in the even teaching weeks and view recorded lectures in self-managed manner in the odd teaching weeks.
  4. We would keep the practice of uploading the recorded lectures on SOUL. Hence, there will be no live streaming.
  5. Some courses with pedagogical reasons may have slightly different arrangements.
  6. Detailed teaching arrangements of your courses will be announced in early September.   

If you are currently outside Hong Kong, please plan for your return trip to Hong Kong so that you will be able to attend f2f classes in mid-September as all inbound travellers entering Hong Kong would be subject to prevailing compulsory quarantine arrangement ( If you have genuine difficulties in attending f2f classes (due to compulsory quarantine, flight suspension etc.), please inform the College Office via email ( on or before 23 August 2021.

The College encourages all students to be vaccinated as soon as possible. This will certainly make your return to full-time study much safer for the new academic year.

See you on campus soon!

College Principal
