Why Choose Hong Kong Universities?
- International recognition
HK universities are well-known and respected for their high-quality research and teaching. The University of Hong Kong (HKU), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (UST), and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) ranked top 50 in the 2018 world university rankings.
Many HK universities offer an array of joint programmes and major/minor degrees for students to pursue various disciplines simultaneously. For specific programmes, students can explore different subjects in the first year before declaring their majors in the second year.
- Medical-related qualifications
Students aiming for medical-related subjects often find the HK route more direct. Unlike graduates from overseas education, HK graduates are not required to sit a conversion licensing exam to practice in HK.
How to apply to top Hong Kong universities?
There are two entry routes for HK universities: Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS, for DSE qualification) and Direct Application (Non-JUPAS, for overseas qualification e.g. GCE, IB, AP).
For the Non-JUPAS route, students need to apply to each university individually. Deadline of each university varies, with the earliest in mid-November and latest in February. Some universities, such as the University of Hong Kong and Chinese University of Hong Kong, have two rounds of admission (fast track: mid-Nov and main round: late Dec).
If you are applying to HK universities, start your preparation 3 months in advance. The key elements in the application include predicted grades, reference letter, and personal statement. An interview is required for some programmes, such as medical-related subjects, law and some business degrees.
