Q1. I am currently taking courses offered by the Department of GRM to fulfil the requirements of the proficiency certificates. When should I submit my application?
Answer: Applicants should submit their applications after they have completed the required courses and received the grades.

Q3. Do I need to upload an official copy of my academic transcript as supporting document?

Q5. May I apply for the proficiency certificates if I have already graduated from CUHK?

Q7. May I use the same set of courses to apply for two different proficiency certificates?
Answer: No. Applicants may apply for more than one proficiency certificate but courses would NOT be double counted.
