Normal Candidature and Maximum Candidature

Normal Candidature and Maximum Candidature

The Normal Candidature refers to the normal duration that students are expected to take to complete a programme. Students are encouraged to complete their programmes within the Normal Candidature period.

Please refer to the Total Duration column in the table under Tuition Fees for the Normal Candidature of your programme.

The Maximum Candidature for a programme grants an additional two years on top of the Normal Candidature. Students who wish to extend their studies beyond the maximum candidature period must submit an appeal to Provost. Such appeals will be considered on a case-to-case basis.
