If you are a non-local candidate, you should also apply through the Non-JUPAS Admissions Scheme. The Faculty accepts applications from eligible non-local students. Competition for places is keen among local students, so non-local candidates must be exceptionally well qualified to gain admissions.
All applicants for the MBBS, BPharm, BNurs, and BChinMed programmes, both local and non-local, are required to have a good working knowledge of English and Cantonese.
Interviews & Offers
Non-JUPAS candidates may be shortlisted on the basis of individual merits as shown by their academic records and other non-academic achievements for interview. Interviews will usually be conducted during the Christmas and Easter holidays and/or in June/July/August. The interviews are designed to assess their suitability for the programmes, including their motivation, attitude, leadership and general social awareness.
Offers of Admission
After the interview, offers of admission will be made to candidates who have already satisfied the entrance requirements. Based on the interview performance and the academic results available, conditional offers may also be extended to some non-JUPAS candidates who have entered for an examination or examinations with a view to satisfying the entrance requirements by August. The offers are conditional upon their obtaining of the necessary examination results for submission to the University.
Applications received by 12:00 noon (HKT) on this date will be evaluated and shortlisted for first-round evaluation.
Shortlisted students may be invited for interviews between November and January.
Applications received after noon (HKT) on this date will be considered on a rolling basis. Interviews will be extended on a case-by-case basis.
Please input any predicted and/or actual grades and submit any reference and supporting documents by this date for first-round evaluation. The counsellors portal will remain open after this date for submissions. Counsellors are advised to submit any predicted or preliminary results or references within one week of receiving an invitation.
*For students applying to the MBBS programme, please provide the predicted or preliminary results or references by 27 November 2023.
If you receive an offer of admission – congratulations! You will be required to indicate your acceptance within three to four weeks. You will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit.
Non-local students should allow at least four to six weeks for an assessment and eight to ten weeks for a visa application upon receiving an offer. Our advice is to apply for a visa as soon as you have received a firm or conditional offer.
If you have not received an offer by 31 March 2024, you may assume your application has been waitlisted for evaluation during the next round. You may continue to submit any additional results in support of your application for evaluation.
