  5. Additional 20 credits for free choice
    From any foundation, middle or higher level courses offered by the University, provided that of the total 160 credits, no more than 40 are gained at Foundation level.

Remark: In this programme, MATH S121, MATH S122 are the foundation pure and applied mathematics courses. MATH ST242 is the foundation statistics course that prepares students to study higher statitsics courses. You may consider taking any of MATH S121, MATH S122 and MATH S242 as your first course.

Notes: If you are the exiting student, you should take note of the following:

  • Courses form excluded combinations with other courses. Only one of the courses of the excluded combinations can count towards an OUHK award. Students should refer to the attached list for details.
  • Successful completion of MATH S204/MATH S207 is considered as completion of MATH S221 and MATH S222.
  • Successful completion of MATH S213 is considered as completion of MATH S215 and MATH S216.
  • Successful completion of MATH S245/MATH S246/MATH S248 is considered as completion of MATH S280.
  • Successful completion of MATH S343 is considered as completion of MATH S350.
  • Successful completion of MATH S322 is considered as completion of MATH S333, but MATH S322 is only counted as 5 credits against the programme requirements. The remaining 5 credits from MATH S322 may be counted towards the free choice credits requirement for the programme.
