Admission arrangements for 2013 Direct / Non-JUPAS applicants
Applicants holding a 12-year school-leaving qualification or an incomplete sub-degree qualification are generally admitted to a college or school, and select their major after one year of study. At the end of the first year,
the top 20% of students (based on (i) completion of at least 30 credit units in
Semesters A and B; (ii) no failed grades in any courses in
Semesters A and B; and (iii) cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of
Semester B) will be able to freely choose from the majors offered by the College. The remaining students (80%) will be assigned a major of their choice, subject to
the availability and the individual student’s ability to meet the selection criteria set by the College.
Applicants holding a 13-year school-leaving qualification, such as a Hong Kong Advanced-Level Examination (HKALE), an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, a General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCEAL) qualification may apply for admission to a college or school, or to a major programme, and may receive Advanced Standing I
. The minimum graduation requirement for Advanced Standing I students is 90 credits (instead of the 120 credits in a standard four-year curriculum), subject to the requirements of individual majors.
Associate degree or higher diploma graduates may be admitted with Advanced Standing II
or Advanced Standing I
, depending on whether their admission is to a senior year or a non-senior year place. Credit transfer will not be considered for advanced standing
