Application & Admission
We will still accept applications after the deadlines for some programmes. However, priority will be given to applications received by the deadlines.
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 has been 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: firstname.lastname@example.org / 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.
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.
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 certificates 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 or before registration. Failure to do so shall lead to disqualification of the application and any offer made will be rescinded. To confirm the offer, the University may require you to apply for official transcripts and/or score reports of public examinations which will be sent directly to us from the issuing universities / authorities before programme registration. You may also be required to provide certified true copies of your academic documents before programme registration.
Applicants who have attended international institutions whose transcripts are in a language other than Chinese or English must submit those transcripts with officially certified English translations.
Submitted documents will not be returned. All supporting documents of unsuccessful applications will be destroyed at the end of the admission exercise.
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.
