  1. Revisions to Programme Titles for JUPAS Admission

We have changed the presentation of programme titles for JUPAS admission in 2017. For departments/schools offering one major only, the major title instead of the name of department/school is shown. Students applying to these direct-entry programmes will start major study in the first year. For other programme titles presented in name of a department/school, students will select a major after one year of study.
