Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the full credit course and certificate course options?

  • The full credit course includes the full learning activities and assessment that the Master of Advanced Pharmacy students complete. Students earn HKU credits that can be used to apply for advanced standing in future enrolment in the Master of Advanced Pharmacy programme within the next 5 years (e.g. exemption and having the credits count towards earning the MAP degree)
  • Advanced standing for up to 12 credits may be granted and all applications are considered on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Studies and shall be approved by the Board of the Faculty.
  • The certificate course option includes part of the learning activities and an abbreviated assessment. Students receive a certificate of completion, but no HKU credits are earned.
