4 new programmes to start next academic year
• Masters in Public Health (MPH);
• Certificate in International Computer Driving License (ICDL);
• Bachelor of Science Degree in Medical Laboratory Technology(BS-MLT);
• Master of Social Work (MSW).
Moreover the Faculty of Nursing has re-introduced a Pre-service Bachelor of Science Degree course in Nursing. It will be a 4 – year programme, beginning in 2010/2011. The faculty will continue to run the old 3- year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (In-service) programme. Meanwhile the Mikocheni School of Nursing, which is affiliated to HKMU’s Faculty of Nursing, beginning in the 2010/2011 academic year, will run a Pre-Service Diploma Programme in Nursing/Midwifery/ Psychiatry for 3 years, while the old Upgrading Diploma will now be conducted for 1 year (instead of 2).
The move to start new programmes is in line with the market forces, availability of resources, teaching and learning facilities.
