However, if you need assistance regarding your application (e.g. to attend an interview), you may discuss your needs with the University for special arrangements to be made if practicable.
Applicants are reminded not to offer any advantage to any members of the University in connection with their applications. These offers may constitute a bribery offence in Hong Kong. The University also forbids its staff from soliciting or accepting such advantages.
You can check the status of your application via your application account. If you are successful in your application, we will send you an email and an admission offer letter by post. No written notification will be sent otherwise.
Successful applicants must indicate their acceptance and pay the acceptance fee (HK$10000) online, using Visa or MasterCard, before the reply deadline. The acceptance fee is NOT refundable or transferable except under the following circumstances:
Upon enrolment, the non-refundable acceptance fee paid at the time of admission will be credited towards the tuition fee, or other fee payment if you receive a top scholarship or a full tuition scholarship.

Applicants who receive a conditional offer should also supply the documentation certifying the fulfilment of the offer conditions before the deadline indicated in the admission offer letter. Note that irrespective of whether a student visa/entry permit has been issued, the conditions of the offer must be fulfilled prior to enrolment.
The University reserves the right to decide whether the submitted documents are acceptable. If you fail to provide the documentation acceptable to the University for verification before your arrival in Hong Kong, your admission offer will be withdrawn and your enrolment at the University will also be rescinded. All fees paid will not be refunded.
After you have accepted the admission offer and fulfilled the conditions of the offer (if applicable), the Academic Regulations and Records Office (ARRO) will send you an enrolment notification, normally in August. Enrolment for new students will take place starting the week of 27 August 2018. If you fail to complete the enrolment procedure by 15 September 2018, you will be considered as having given up the place for admission, and all fees paid will not be refunded.
Please note that if your admission offer is a conditional offer, you are required to meet the conditions as specified in the admission offer letter before enrolment.
The University reserves the right to cancel any programmes in which case all fees paid by applicants will be refunded.
