We welcome your application to HKU through the International Admissions Scheme / Non-JUPAS Admissions Scheme if you are applying on the strength of qualifications other than Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) or mainland China's National Joint College Entrance Examination (NJCEE/Gao Kao), regardless of whether you are studying in Hong Kong or overseas.

Fast Track / Main Round Application

Application for undergraduate admission in September 2017 is now open. If you would like to receive your application results from November 2016 onwards, you may select Fast Track admission on your application and complete the online application before 12:00 noon, November 16, 2016 (Hong Kong Time).

If you are not selected during the Fast Track admission period, you will be considered further in the Main Round. You will not be disadvantaged by not having been made an offer during the Fast Track admission period.

Main Round applications will close at 12:00 noon, December 30, 2016 (Hong Kong Time). Offers for Main Round applications will be made from March 2017 onwards.

Late Application

Late applications will be accepted from early January 2017. Details will be announced on this website nearer the time. As undergraduate places fill up very quickly, you are advised to apply for admission as early as possible.

We value all roundedness

  • You should have excellent examination scores for admission, but we also value non-academic excellence in particular leadership.
  • You should provide your school's prediction of your grades in the school leaving examination, but we may also take into account your earlier school and/or public examination record.
  • We take into account your Personal Statement and Referee's Report on you.
  • You will need to provide us with evidence of good English language ability.
  • We wish to see evidence of a second language ability, but not necessarily Chinese.
