Yes. Students admitted to IPO programs through Program-based Admission would be eligible to join the major selection exercise of any one of the Schools running the program if they wish to switch their major. He / She could choose and declare a single School for major application as far as he / she fulfills minimum entrance requirement of the School. Please contact program colleagues for more details.
IPO students who wish to switch to another major offered by Schools not running the IPO programs, can apply for program transfer according to the University procedure and regulation. Those who want to continue the admitted program after the 1st year can stay.
The 1st year curriculum of IPO’s major will include general courses that are common to that of other Schools, so that students switching to majors of other Schools will not face major credit deficit after the 1st year. We hope to ensure that students admitted to a program can change their mind after discovering their real interests and abilities in the 1st year.
The number of students admitted via School-based Admission would be at least equal to the number of students admitted via Program-based Admission.
