Course Description

View the most up to date timetable here. 

CUHK teaches in three languages: English (E), Mandarin (P) and Cantonese (C). You can click the "Website for Course Availability" link for instructions on viewing CUHK's teaching timetable. Select Term 1 for classes starting in January, and Term 2 for August.

Note language codes like "E#C," indicate classes taught in Cantonese that will switch to English for English speakers. Codes like "E&C" will be in a combination of both languages. E#C or E#P courses are fine for most English-speaking international students, while E&C and E&P courses are a great opportunity for fluent speakers of Mandarin or Cantonese use their language capabilities in a classroom environment.
