Discipline-Specific Requirements (DSR) 

BAESP strives to provide students with a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills they will need to communicate effectively in English for professional, academic and business purposes in Hong Kong and around the world, where English functions as the key lingua franca. The BAESP discipline-specific curriculum has the following components.

(1) Major Study Subjects 

Major Study Subjects (60 credits) are compulsory for all BAESP students and are organised under three focal areas: Language Sciences, Global Communicative Competence and English for the Professions. These subjects are designed to provide BAESP students with the solid foundation of academic knowledge and communication skills needed to become language professionals.

The Capstone Project in Language Studies (6 credits) under the focal area of English for the Professions is compulsory for all BAESP students. It is conducted in the final year under the supervision of ENGL academic staff. Through the Capstone Project, the learning experience students have accumulated over the BAESP programme is consolidated in the form of a dissertation. This capstone experience helps prepare students for professional practice, further academic pursuits and lifelong learning, while developing their generic competencies.

(2) Major Study Elective Subjects 

Students can freely choose BAESP electives (15 DSR credits) across the three focal areas to customise their learning experience and develop their expertise.

(3) Work-Integrated Education (WIE)

WIE (3 training credits) provides a framework for students to integrate what they have learned in the classroom with real world practice, and to develop into well-rounded individuals with professional competence. Students typically meet the WIE requirement by completing a one-month summer internship in an organizational or a corporate context, where they apply classroom knowledge and skills in the working world. WIE assessment is based on three grades: Pass with Merit (M), Pass (P) and Failure (F). However, the subject does not contribute towards students' final GPA. Students can apply to waive the WIE requirement if they can demonstrate that it has been fulfilled through relevant work experience. Students undertaking non-local WIE placements may receive partial financial subsidies from the Student Advancement and Resources in the form of Offshore WIE Sponsorship (OWS).
