Online Application System - Step by Step Guide

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.

The Sports Scholarship Scheme is available to students with significant commitment to the pursuit of sporting excellence as well as to their formal academic studies.  Please visit the website of the University's Institute of Human Performance here for further details.
