*have obtained in one sitting of the GCE Advanced Level Examination pass grades in no less than three Advanced Level subjects (Applicants with pass grades in 2 Advanced Level and 2 Advanced Subsidiary Level subjects may also apply)*; OR

*have acquired an International Baccalaureate Diploma (check preferred subject requirements of the programmes)*; OR

*possess a qualification obtained outside Hong Kong which qualifies them for university admission in the country/region where such qualification is originated (e.g. high school diploma plus SAT in USA, UEC / STPM in Malaysia, ATAR in Australia, OSSD in Canada, GSAT in Taiwan, etc.); OR

have successfully completed:

*at least one year of full-time undergraduate study at a recognized university; OR

*a course of study leading to the qualification of an associate degree / higher diploma; OR

*are mature persons aged 23 or over on 1st September in the year when admission is sought, provided they are able to show either by publication or by other acceptable evidence that they have achieved sufficient competence in their chosen field of study to justify admission; or have shown exceptional ability in appropriate academic or professional fields; OR

*have other exceptional achievements which merit admission.

For candidates who have completed only GCE-AS or the first year of IB Diploma studies with outstanding results, they may be considered for admission under special circumstances on individual merits case-by-case.


2. Language Requirement

Applicants should have attained an acceptable level of proficiency in English. Below are the minimum required scores or grades for some of the more common acceptable examinations.

In addition to the General Requirements, including the Language Requirement, individual programmes may have additional or higher requirements. Please refer to the website(s) of the respective programme(s) to which you wish to apply for admission for updates on the programme requirements.



Students admitted on GCE A-level / IB or equivalent qualifications (e.g. STPM) will normally be required to complete 99 units of courses (normative period of study is 3 years) in order to graduate. Students admitted on standing below GCE A-level / IB qualification (e.g. qualifications obtained outside Hong Kong for admission to 4-year undergraduate programmes of an overseas university) will normally be required to complete 123 units of courses (normative period of study is 4 years) in order to graduate. There are yet some other programmes that are offered as a standard four-year or five-year programme.


Additional Considerations

Applicants are:

1.expected to possess keen interests, suitable talents or academic background to make a unique contribution to the cultural diversity on campus;
