Useful Information for JUPAS Applicants

  1. Admission Arrangements and Curriculum Structure

Admission Arrangements
Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) students must apply for admission to a Bachelors degree programme for first-year studies. Depending on the programme, students are either admitted directly to a major in the first year or admitted to a school/department with an undeclared major (entering a major after one year of study).

Curriculum Structure

“Discovery” and “Innovation” are integral parts of our 4-year undergraduate Discovery-enriched Curriculum (DEC) curriculum. The DEC has the goal of giving all of our students the opportunity to make original discoveries while at City University. The minimum graduation requirement for a 4-year degree programme is 120 credit units, subject to the different requirements of individual colleges/schools. Students are allowed to graduate with a maximum of 144 credit units, with the flexibility to enrich their studies with double majors or minors. For details, click here.

HKDSE applicants must fulfil the General Entrance Requirements of four core and two elective subjects for admission to the University.
