Course Registration

Our credit transfer system is based on: 1 credit = 1 hours *18 weeks ( 1 credit ≒ 2 ECTS)

PAX students are required to register for at least 2 courses with 1 course in hosting department/institute. The students may also choose courses available in the hosting college to meet this requirement. If students wish to take courses taught in Chinese, they must show Chinese proficiency and/or get approval from the course instructor.
