Application Closes at 12:00 noon (Hong Kong Time) 

Non-local students requiring a student visa/entry permit to study in Hong Kong should allow sufficient time for assessment and visa application (at least 4-6 weeks for assessment, and up to 8-10 weeks for visa application upon receipt of an admission offer). Therefore, application for student visa should be done as soon as an offer of admission (firm or conditional) is received.

*Candidates may submit updated academic results to further support their application to the University, which will be evaluated to assess their fit for the programme when the updates are made available.

Programme Interview Schedule 

Faculties may invite candidates to attend interviews/entrance tests on a selective basis, meaning that not all candidates need to attend these assessments; and being invited to an interview/test is not an indicator of the chance of admission.

Please click on the Faculty below to check out the respective programmes' interview schedule. The schedule is for reference only and is subject to change. For students studying overseas and cannot attend a face-to-face interview in Hong Kong, phone, Zoom or Skype interview may be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Faculty/Programme office will confirm the interview date and time and other arrangements with shortlisted students in the interview invitation.
