Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Social Data Science

1. Can I submit a late application?

Late applications will be accepted before 12:00 noon, July 15, 2020 (Hong Kong Time).  As places are being filled all the time, you may wish to apply for admissions as early as possible.


2. Can I apply if my examination results have not been released before the deadline for application?

You can still apply for admissions to the University in September 2020, provided that you can submit your final examination results and any other required documents by July / August 2020 (exact date to be announced). You should submit the application form first before the deadline for application, i.e. December 4, 2019 (12:00 noon Hong Kong time) and then send the final examination results to the University as soon as possible.


3. Is there any interview or test?

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview in February to March 2020.  The arrangements for interview will be sent to shortlisted candidates by e-mail. However, being invited for an interview is not an indicator of the chance of admission.


4. When will I receive an offer of admission from the University?

You will receive an admission offer starting from March to the end of August 2020. However, if you are placed on a waiting list, you may not hear the result of your application until later. If you are unlikely to be offered a place, the University will try to let you know as soon as possible via the online application status system of the Direct Admissions Scheme.


5. How much is the composition fee?

The BASc(SDS) programme is a UGC-funded programme. The composition (tuition) fee for the academic year 2019-20 is HK$42,100 for local students. The fee for 2020-21 will be announced in due course.


6. I have completed an online application through the Direct Admissions Scheme (DAS), what should I do next?

You may upload additional supporting documents through the Online Document Upload System after submission of an online application.  For results to be released at a later date, please arrange to upload them to the system once available.  Please note that you are not required to submit any hard copies and/or certified true copies of your documents to the University during the application stage.  Should you be given a confirmed admission offer by the University, you will be provided with information about how to submit certified true copies of your documents.

Please refer to the Application Procedures for more details.
