#Top-up degree programmes with a normal duration of two years. Entrants to programme will not receive credit transfer.
HK$200 per programme choice for online application
A key feature of the Special Admissions Scheme is the award of advanced standing, in recognition of prior studies, upon admission.
Senior-year entrants will receive Advanced Standing II, enabling them to complete their study with a minimum of 60 credit (instead of 120 credits in a standard four-year curriculum), subject to the requirements of individual majors. No credit transfer will be considered for advanced standing entrants. Instead, they may be considered for course exemption based on prior study. Credit units are not earned for an exempted course.
Associate Degree or Higher Diploma graduates who are unable to gain admission to a senior year place may be considered for Advanced Standing I admission. The minimum graduation requirement for Advanced Standing I students is 90 credits (instead of the 120 credits in a standard four-year curriculum), subject to the requirements of individual majors. Credit transfer will not be considered for advanced standing students.
It is your responsibility (including CityU graduates / current students) to provide full information to facilitate the evaluation of your application.
Please upload the supporting documents on your academic and / or professional qualifications (e.g. transcripts, award certificates, examination / English test results) as soon as you have completed your application. Documents unrelated to academic qualifications (e.g. HKID card) need not be submitted. Submitted documents will not be returned.
Transcripts and certificates which are not in English should be accompanied by an official certified translation.
Selection decisions will mainly be based on the qualifications and supporting documents provided at the time of application. Additional information / documents provided to the University after the commencement of the selection process may or may not be considered, at the discretion of the relevant department.
Upon request by the University, you should also present the original documents (including CityU qualifications and public examination results) for verification. Provision of any false or misleading information or failure to supply the original documentation for verification will lead to disqualification of the admission application and any offer / enrolment made will be rescinded. All fees paid will not be refunded.
Application results will usually be notified to applicants by the end of June 2013.
You can check the application result through your application account. If you are successful in your application, we will notify you by post. No notification will be sent otherwise.
The information that you provide in the application, including the HKID card/passport/travel document number, examination results and qualifications, will be used for the following purposes:
In accordance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance, you have the right of access to and the right of correction of the information contained in the application, and the right to request a copy of such data during the admission exercise. If you wish to obtain more information, please write to the University. You may be charged a fee for each request. Data for unsuccessful applications will be destroyed at the end of the admission exercise.
The admission of an applicant to the University is based on academic performance and other relevant criteria. If you have a physical or other disability, you are not required to declare this at the application stage. However, if you need assistance regarding your applications (e.g. to attend an interview), you may discuss your needs with the Admissions Office for special arrangement to be made if practicable.
The University reserves the right to cancel any programmes in which case all fees paid by applicants will be refunded.
