Language Policy and Language Enhancement Programme

University’s Language Policy

 

Under the language policy of the University, all full-time undergraduate students will be subject to the Language Exit Requirements (LERs) for English and Putonghua. With few exceptions, the LERs are International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 6.0 and Putonghua Shuiping Ceshi (PSC) 3B, respectively. Details could be found in http://www.eduhk.hk/cle/en/University/LERs (login by EdUHK student account).

 

All full-time undergraduate students enrolled in the UGC-funded undergraduate programmes will be sponsored once to take the IELTS and PSC after they complete the language enhancement courses at specific semesters of their respective programmes.

 

Language Enhancement Programmes

 

For UGC-funded undergraduate students, this comprises three mandatory Chinese enhancement courses, four mandatory English enhancement courses and two mandatory Putonghua enhancement courses, over the four/five years of the programme. 

 

For self-financed undergraduate students, there are one mandatory Chinese enhancement course and two mandatory English enhancement courses.

 

Language Assessments

English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) and Tertiary Putonghua Test (TPT) [Applicable to Year 1 entry new students only]

 

ELPA is a compulsory test.  During the four/five years of studies at EdUHK, students have to take ELPA twice. The first ELPA will take place in August in their Year 1 as shown in the schedules below. Students should pay due attention to emails in their EdUHK email account for details of the tests.
