What do students do at the University of Exeter during Year 4 and Year 5?

During Year 4, students will register concurrently with HKUST and the University of Exeter although they will physically be studying at the University of Exeter. Students will enroll into courses/project that are equivalent to 12 HKUST credits that help them complete the remaining requirements for the HKUST engineering programs. 

During the same year, students will start taking law courses to fulfill the law degree requirements.  During Year 5, students will focus on law courses as they should have finished all requirements for the HKUST degrees by that time.
