Entry requirements

If you are applying on the strength of your HKDSE examination results, you should apply through JUPAS. JUPAS applicants are normally required to possess the following qualifications:

Bachelor's Degree Programmes

  • Chinese Language - 3
  • English Language - 3
  • Liberal Studies - 2
  • Mathematics (Compulsory Part) - 2
  • Any 1 Elective - 2
  • excluding Applied Learning Chinese and Extended Part in Mathematics

Higher Diploma Programme

  • Chinese Language - 2
  • English Language - 2
  • Any 3 Electives (not more than 2 Applied Learning Subjects) - 2
  • excluding Applied Learning Chinese and Extended Part in Mathematics

Remarks:

  • "Attained with Distinction" in an Applied Learning subject (Category B) will be regarded as having met the requirement of an elective subject. "Attained with Distinction" / "Attained with Distinction (I)" are comparable to level 3 while "Attained with Distinction (II)" is comparable to level 4 of the Senior Secondary Subjects (Category A).
  • "Attained" level will be regarded as a value-added factor to be considered in totality with the Student Learning Profile (SLP) for the purpose of admission.
  • Other Language subjects (Category C) will be accepted as unspecified elective subjects. The minimum requirement is Grade E.
  • For non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students who have met the specified circumstances as announced by the Education Bureau (EDB), the University accepts alternative qualifications in Chinese Language (only those under GCE, GCSE, IGCSE, and DSE Applied Learning Chinese (for NCS students)) for the purpose of meeting the minimum entrance requirements. For programmes which require students to have possessed a good command of Chinese including BEd(Chinese Language), BEd(Chinese History), and BA in Language Studies (Chinese majors), waiver of the DSE Chinese Language requirement will not be granted.
  • Applicants cannot use Extended Part in Mathematics (i.e. Module 1 / Module 2) as a substitute for the Mathematics Compulsory Part, nor can it be counted as an elective subject for the purpose of meeting the General Entrance Requirements. But the Extended Modules will be used as supporting information for admission to our programmes.
  • "Combined sittings" is allowed for HKDSE in the calculation of admission scores. If an applicant has taken the examination in a subject more than once, only the best result for that subject will be counted. No score deduction for repeated subjects.

We welcome local and non-local applicants who are seeking admission on the strength of non-HKDSE qualifications to apply for our government-funded programmes via direct application (i.e. Non-JUPAS application). Applicants who are seeking admission on the strength of HKDSE qualifications should apply through Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS).

Applicants who possess the following qualifications are welcome to apply via direct application:

  • A recognised post-secondary qualification^ such as an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma; or
  • One year of attendance in a recognised Associate Degree/Higher Diploma programme; or
  • Non-local qualification such as a GCE AL, IB Diploma, High School Graduation Diploma or SAT.; or
  • Transfer students who are currently enrolled in a Bachelor's degree or higher degree programmes at a recognised local or non-local university; or
  • HKALE qualification; or
  • A mature applicant; or
  • Possession of other exceptional abilities that merit special consideration.
