English Enhancement Subjects for Research Students


All research students shall be required to take and pass two English enhancement subjects, namely ELC6001 “Presentation Skills for Research Students” and ELC6002 “Thesis Writing for Research Students” before thesis submission.  For exemption, research students need to pass the Research Language Skills Assessment (RLSA)*.


Note: * With strong justification, the Chief Supervisor could recommend, for special consideration of the Vice President (Research Development), his/her research student for exemption from taking the English enhancement subjects without sitting the Research Language Skills Assessment (RLSA).  The Vice President (Research Development)’s decision will be final and not subject to appeal.
