    General Credit Transfer (GCT)

    General Credit Transfer (GCT)

    Transfer credits awarded by means of General Credit Transfer are known as general credits.
    General credits may be used to reduce the number of credits required for graduation, but cannot be used for the exemption of a specific named course. In other words, general credits can only be used for the exemption of free-choice credits in an undergraduate programme.
    In terms of level, general credits are deemed to be related to Foundation level studies, and are therefore counted as credits at Foundation level in satisfying programme requirements.

    General credits are awarded for an eligible qualification with TCV > 0, subject to a maximum limit set in the respective OUHK programme. The BGS programme may grant GCT up to a maximum of 40 credits. For other programmes, normally, a maximum of 20 general credits may be granted but some programmes may award less. Applicants are advised to consult the Guide to Application for Advanced Standing (paragraph 4 of Section D1) for details.
    General credits cannot be applied to programmes which do not allow free-choice credits.
    No GCT is available for postgraduate programmes.
    General credits may be used together with specific credits towards an OUHK programme, subject to the applicant’s maximum entitlement, and also the maximum transfer allowed in an OUHK programme.


    Course Choice Advice

    You should not register for free-choice courses until the GCT application result is known.
