Application & Admission

Applicants are advised to visit individual programme websites for the programme information and entrance requirements.
Application Deadline and Late Applications
We operate a rolling admission process for a majority of programmes, which means the sooner you apply, the sooner your application will be assessed. We urge you to submit your application as early as possible. For the most updated admission schedule, please visit the admission webpage of individual programmes at www.eduhk.hk/acadprog.

We will still accept applications after the deadlines for some programmes. However, priority will be given to applications received by the deadlines.
Non-local Applicants

We welcome applications from local and non-local applicants. Starting from 2019/20 intake cohort, a new definition of Non-local Students (NLS) which is provided by the Education Bureau (EDB) of the HKSAR will be adopted. Definition of local and non-local applicants is as listed here.

To make direct enquiries on the definition of non-local students, please contact EDB (Email: edbinfo@edb.gov.hk / Fax: (852) 2804 6499).

Non-local applicants are advised to apply as early as possible as it often takes considerable time for the Immigration Department of the HKSAR to process your visa applications.

Please refer to the Section of "Non-local Applicants" for details.

Submission of Application
You can submit your application online at www.eduhk.hk/acadprog/online. The University doesn't accept paper applications. Application fee for local applicants is HK$150 per programme. For non-local applicants, the application fee is HK$300. Please refer to the Section of "Non-local Applicants" for details. Application fee should be paid online by using either VISA/Master credit card or UnionPay. You may refer to the "Other Payment Methods" for alternative payment methods if you are not able to pay online.

The fee once paid is non-refundable and non-transferable unless the programme in question is cancelled by the University. Upon successful submission of application, you will receive an application acknowledgement by email.
Documents to be Submitted with Your Application
You should upload your transcript, certificate, language test results and other supporting documents direct on www.eduhk.hk/acadprog/online. Your application will remain incomplete until we receive all the necessary supporting materials. Due to system limitations, the maximum capacity of your upload files is 17MB in total whereas the maximum size of each file is 4MB.

If you are our graduate in 1995 or after, you do not need to submit any copies of academic transcript(s) and certificate(s), but you will need to authorize us to extract and use your records of studies to process your application. For qualifications obtained in other universities or institutions, submission of transcript(s) and certificate(s) are required.

Please do not send any original documents to the University in any circumstances as the University will not be responsible for any documents mislaid. However, original documents of the qualifications stated in the application must be presented for verification at registration. Failure to do so shall lead to disqualification of the application and any offer made will be rescinded.

Applicants who have attended international institutions whose transcripts are in a language other than Chinese or English must submit those transcripts with certified English translations.

All supporting documents of unsuccessful applications will be destroyed at the end of the admission exercise.
Interviews and Admission Results
Shortlisted applicants may be required to attend admission interviews/tests. An applicant who has not been invited to an interview shall not assume that he/she is not being considered for admission.

You will be informed of your application status, such as application acknowledgement, interview arrangements, etc., via your personal e-mail. Applicants are strongly advised to check their personal email frequently.

Successful applicants will receive individual notifications by post/email. Applicants who have not been offered admission before the commencement of the programme may assume their applications unsuccessful. No individual notifications will be sent to unsuccessful or waitlisted applicants.
Credit Transfer
Credit transfer may be granted to students in recognition of their prior learning experiences. Students may submit an application within the first two weeks of each semester in each academic year. For courses on offer in the summer semester, applications should be submitted one week before the commencement of the semester.
Cancellation of Programme
The University reserves the right to cancel any programme(s)/subject(s)/class(es) in which case all fees paid will be refunded.

To allow us to provide sufficient study support, applicants with disabilities are requested to provide information about the nature or degree of their disability through the JUPAS Sub-system for Applicants with a Disability if they are applying through JUPAS or directly to the University via our online system. Their applications will be assessed in the same manner as those of others, namely, on the basis of academic and professional qualifications, work experience, non-academic achievements, and performance in the interview and/or subject test (if applicable).
