Short Description

The Faculty of Education in collaboration with the Faculty of Science offers an inter-disciplinary five-year honours degree focusing on the study and teaching of the science subjects Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science and Integrated Science in the senior secondary school curriculum.

The double-degree curriculum integrates academic and professional studies in science education.  Students complete a Science major programme in the Faculty of Science, and Education Professional Core courses in the Faculty of Education.  Professional aspects of the double degree are phased in gradually over the five years, including pedagogical, psychological and sociological courses, and teaching practice in Hong Kong secondary schools.  The curriculum focuses on the teaching of the science subjects as it takes place in mainstream Hong Kong schools.

Calculation of scores for applicants with more than 1 sitting in HKDSE Examination

In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results.  Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters.  The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2018-19 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website http://www.hku.hk/dse.
