Taste of university life

LINGNAN UNIVERSITY is offering five-week intensive courses this summer for those who want to make use of their holidays for studying.

The university is inviting Form Seven, associate degree or undergraduate students to apply

for the courses.

'Universities should remove barriers and allow more students to be admitted at various levels'

Universities have been called on to help develop a more relaxed system of credit transfers for students, to boost the number with access to higher education.

An Education Commission sub-group is due to finalise proposals by the end of the year for the implementation of a flexible and transferable credit unit system.

Unified courses to allow college switching

Universities are preparing to unify parts of their curriculums to take account of a proposal to allow students to switch between institutions to complete degrees.

Courses will have to be trimmed down to common core parts to make it easier for students to move to another university and continue studying the same course.

OLI course fees based on credit weighting plan

I refer to the article, 'Course fees deductible to upgrade skill levels' (South China Morning Post, March 7), in which reference was made to the course fees of the Open Learning Institute (OLI).

I wish to point out that the notion of a lump sum annual course fee as reflected by the statement 'a student would have to pay $25,000 a year' is incorrect.

Credit for everyone after study

THE Open Learning Institute's first batch of 151 students were able to graduate in little over half the time originally estimated due the institute's unique credit transfer system.

The system, known as the Advanced Standing Policy, allows students to transfer credits obtained in previous study elsewhere to their OLI course.
