Do I need to travel to the United Kingdom and Hong Kong for the study?
Yes, you must study in the United Kingdom in Semester One and Hong Kong in Semester Two. This is a one year full time programme. The courses at University of Sheffield start in September and the courses at Hong Kong Baptist University start in the following January. Students will need to arrive in both places according to the study schedule.
Where shall I do the Dissertation?
The dissertation is the final project for this programme. It’s an individual project. Students can submit a topic and a supervisor will be assigned either from HKBU or Sheffield to supervise the project production. A student can communicate with the supervisor either in person, or through the internet such as email or Skype. So, you can do the Dissertation in any part of the world. However, we still highly recommend students to have occasional face to face meetings with their supervisors.

Only one graduation certificate will be issued, with the names and logos of both universities on it. The title awarded is “Master of Science in Global Marketing Management”.

No. All documents must be submitted to the University of Sheffield.
When and How do I apply for Hong Kong student visa?
The HKBU office will email to all MScGMM students to notify them for Hong Kong student visa application. The application will be centralized and processed through HKBU (Application fee HKD450). Students need not apply on their own.
** Please note that student entry visa may take up to 10 weeks for the whole process in peak season.
