If you are seeking admission on the strength of your HKDSE examination results (current or past years), you should follow the application procedures under JUPAS (Joint University Programmes Admissions System). Otherwise you should submit application direct to the University via the direct application (Non-JUPAS) route.
No, you can only apply either through JUPAS or Non-JUPAS route, but not both.
The Compulsory Part of Maths is a core subject requirement. If you apply for BEd(Primary)/(Secondary) in Mathematics Major, you need to obtain a Level 3 or above in Compulsory Maths plus a Level 2 or above in one module from the Extended Part of Maths (i.e. either Module 1 – Calculus and Statistics; or Module 2 – Algebra and Calculus). Applicants who obtain Level 5 or above in Compulsory Maths but do not take Extended Part of Maths will be considered for admission on an individual basis. However, you cannot use it as a substitute for the Compulsory Maths, nor can it be counted as an elective subject for the purpose of meeting the General Entrance Requirements but it will be used as supporting information for admission to our programmes.
The University will consider Combined Science and Integrated Science the same as Physics, Chemistry or Biology for the purpose of meeting the General Entrance Requirements.
One only for undergraduate programmes. The University will consider the result of the best ApL subject (excluding DSE Applied Learning Chinese (for NCS students)), irrespective of the number of ApL subjects taken by a JUPAS applicant.
GCE/GCSE/IGCSE Chinese will be accepted for applicants meeting one of the following circumstances (certification from schools must be provided by JUPAS):
From 2017/18 onwards, the DSE Applied Learning Chinese (for NCS students) will also be accepted as an alternative Chinese Language qualification. Please visit the website of the Education Bureau (EDB) or JUPAS for detailed information.
The Government funded institutions may consider the applications case by case and handle the Chinese Language requirement flexibly for NCS students.
For the purpose of meeting our General Entrance Requirements for JUPAS applicants, the University only accepts results in HKDSE English Language.
The assessment weighting varies with programmes on the basis of individual programme needs. For programmes with preferred HKDSE subjects indicated in the entrance requirements, the preferred subjects normally carry more weight. Please click here for details of the specific programme entrance requirements.
Yes, we accept combined sittings in HKDSE examination. For the purpose of ranking applicants for admission, all recognised public examination results are considered.
