The Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS) provides a platform for students with Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) examination results (past and/or current) to apply for admission to government-funded full-time Bachelor’s degree and Associate Degree/Higher Diploma programmes offered by the eight JUPAS participating-institutions, the non-government-funded full-time Bachelor’s degree programmes offered by The Open University of Hong Kong and the full-time Bachelor's degree programmes offered by the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP) institutions.
You are eligible to apply through JUPAS if
You are NOT eligible to apply through JUPAS if you are currently enrolled in a full-time or sandwich Bachelor’s degree programme offered under JUPAS, regardless of whether you wish to apply for admission on the strength of your HKDSE examination results.
The JUPAS programmes you can apply for at CityU are as follows:
HKDSE students must apply for admission to first-year studies in a Bachelor's degree programme. For Schools and Departments offering one major only, students are admitted directly to the major in the first year. For other Schools and Departments, students are admitted with an undeclared major. They will enter a major after one year of study. For details, click here.
If you have applied for admission through JUPAS, you should NOT submit an application to the University again for any programmes listed under JUPAS. Otherwise, your direct application to the University will not be considered and any application fee paid will NOT be refunded. You may, however, still submit a direct application to the University for non-government funded programmes that are not offered through JUPAS.
Check the minimum entrance requirements for HKDSE students from the following webpages:
School and non-school applicants should submit their applications via JUPAS.
The application information that you submit via JUPAS is sent to CityU on a regular basis. We will also receive your examination results from the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority via JUPAS. We use this information to identify applicants who meet the entrance requirements of our programmes. Various types of admissions scores are then calculated to facilitate the selection of applicants for admission.
Applicants may be invited to attend an interview. Most of our interviews are conducted in June and July, before the announcement of HKDSE examination results. Some interviews may be conducted after the results are announced. For details of interview arrangements, click here. The selection of students for interview is primarily based on the application information [e.g. band choices, exams results (if available), portfolio (for School of Creative Media), Other Experiences and Achievements in Competitions / Activities (OEA) and the school reference report].
The Main Round offer results for 2017 entry will be announced on 7 August 2017 (tentative). The offer you receive in the Main Round is the best offer possible. If you receive an offer in the Main Round, please follow the instructions announced via JUPAS to confirm your acceptance of the admission offer.
