(1) Courses are offered by SFU and students will study at SFU for at least one semester as exchange students via the International Office.
(2) Students are recommended to take MATH3845 Interest Theory and Applications (pre-requisite requirement of MATH3837 Actuarial Mathematics) in Semester 2 of Year 2 and study at SFU in Semester 1 of Year 3.
(3) Interested students with good academic standing (GPA of 3.0 or above) should submit applications to the Department to declare Concentration after completing MATH3845. Students are conditionally admitted by the highest GPA until the quota is filled. Entrance to the Concentration must be approved by the Department before students studying abroad at SFU.
(4) Students returning from exchange at SFU will follow the normal procedure to apply for transfer of units but the grades will NOT be transferred or included in the GPA calculation.
(5) Other than claiming Concentration at HKBU, students will not get certificate from SFU and will not be granted exemption of profession qualification examinations by completing the Concentration.
