Non-JUPAS Admission (2024 Intake) Eligibility If you are a local candidate who is applying for admissions on the strength of qualifications other than the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE), you should apply through the Non-JUPAS Admissions Scheme. For example, you may be studying: • overseas; • at an international school or at a local school in Hong Kong but you are taking a non-local (e.g. International Baccalaureate Diploma or GCE A-level) examination either through your school or as a private candidate. According to an agreement reached between ALL Hong Kong universities and the government, if you are a local school applicant, you must have completed at least six years of secondary education when you enter the University; • on a sub-degree (i.e. Associate Degree or Higher Diploma) programme at a community college of a UGC-funded institution or at the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (HKIVE); • a full-time bachelor’s degree programme in a local tertiary institution funded by the UGC. Please note however that following UGC’s guidelines, inter-institutional transfer, irrespective of whether there is a change of programme or discipline, is generally discouraged, unless there are exceptional circumstances and the following conditions are met: - you have successfully completed one year of study on a bachelor’s degree programme with excellent academic results; and - your application for inter-institutional transfer has been specially approved by the University on the basis of over-enrolment. The Faculty accepts applications from eligible non-local students. Competition for places is keen among local students, so non-local candidates must be exceptionally well qualified to gain admission. Application Procedures All non-JUPAS applications should be submitted via the online application system. Candidates are strongly advised to upload the full set of supporting documents within one week after the submission of application to facilitate admission assessment. If documents are not available at the time of application submission, candidates are reminded to upload updated/obtained results or certificates as soon as the documents are available. For more details, please check the Application Guide. Language Requirement All applicants for the MBBS, BPharm, BNurs, BNurs-ALT and BChinMed programmes, both local and non-local, are required to have a good working knowledge of English and Cantonese. Interview Arrangement Non-JUPAS candidates may be shortlisted on the basis of individual merits as shown by their academic records and other non-academic achievements for interview. Interviews will usually be conducted during the Christmas and Easter holidays and/or in June/July/August. The interviews are designed to assess their suitability for the programmes, including their motivation, attitude, leadership and general social awareness. Offers of Admission After the interview, offers of admission will be made to candidates who have already satisfied the entrance requirements. Based on the interview performance and the academic results available, conditional offers may also be extended to some non-JUPAS candidates who have entered for an examination or examinations with a view to satisfying the entrance requirements by August. The offers are conditional upon their obtaining of the necessary examination results for submission to the University. 20
