1. What are the University entrance requirements and your Faculty entrance requirement?
The University entrance requirements and our Faculty entrance requirement can be viewed from the HKU website "Undergraduate Admissions for JUPAS Students - Entrance Requirements".
2. Can I apply for direct entry to Year 2 or 3?
There is no direct entry to Year 2 or 3 for the BA&BED(LangEd)-English programme.
3. I am a current student of a bachelor’s degree programme at another university. Can I apply for a transfer?
Candidates studying bachelor's degree programmes in Hong Kong or at overseas (except the Mainland China) may apply through the Non-JUPAS / International Admissions Scheme for a transfer and indicate in the application their preference for credit transfer and / or direct entry. Request for credit transfer will be considered by the Faculty after you have been admitted to the University. Bachelor’s degree students studying programmes funded by the University Grants Committee (UGC) in local tertiary institutions may wish to note that inter-institutional transfer is generally discouraged unless there are exceptional circumstances and such transfer has been specially approved by the university on the basis of over-enrolment.
Local / non-local candidates attending bachelor's degree programmes in Mainland universities should apply through the scheme "Admission of Undergraduate Students from the Mainland" coordinated by the University’s China Affairs Office.
4. I am a JUPAS applicant. Do I need to put the Programme in Band A choice?

The number of places is not pre-determined, it will depend on the quality of JUPAS and non-JUPAS applicants.
7. Do you interview students for admission?
Selected JUPAS and non-JUPAS applicants who meet University Entrance Requirements will be invited for interviews. JUPAS applicants will be invited for interviews after the announcement of the JUPAS results. Being invited to an interview is not an indicator of the chance of admission. We will notify candidates the arrangement for interview by e-mail or phone, if necessary.
8. How will the interview be conducted? Will interviewers ask questions I can prepare for?
The interview provides an opportunity to meet you and find out about your personal qualities and interest in the programme. You will have the chance to meet lecturers and learn more about the programme.
Applicants will be asked a wide range of questions. It is important to be yourself, so preparation of short speeches is discouraged.
