To declare a minor in English, students must complete at least 15 credits of which at least 9 credits must be at level 3 or above.

For the award of Minor Programme, only the non-major modules (i.e. modules grouped under Business Education, Common Core Curriculum and Free Electives) can be double-counted.

To fulfill the requirements of a Minor Programme, a student must complete all specified modules either by attendance with Pass grade, module exemption or credit transfer. The maximum module exemption or credit transfer for a Minor is limited to 6 credits only.
