Undergraduate Admissions

JUPAS Admissions

Applicants seeking admission based on their Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) results should apply through the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS).

Admission Requirements
Starting in 2012, students with HKDSE attainments will be admitted to one of the 4 Schools (Engineering, Science, Business & Management and Humanities & Social Science). Prospective HKUST students only need to opt for the School they wish to join. In the first 2 to 3 semesters (1 to 1.5 years), they will take the compulsory University Core Curriculum Program and learn the fundamentals of the major programs of the School. The Schools will provide academic advice to help students explore their aptitude and interest before choosing their majors.

For admission, applicants must meet:
1. the general entrance requirements, and
2. the following School-specific requirements:

Students admitted to the Engineering School may choose to enter an interdisciplinary major upon completion of one year of study. In particular, students interested in Engineering and Business Management may wish to pursue a Dual Degree (BEng and BBA) in Technology and Management.

1. M1: Mathematics Extended Module 1 (Calculus & Statistics)
2. M2: Mathematics Extended Module 2 (Algebra & Calculus)
3. Chinese Language may be replaced by one of the “New Secondary School other languages” or another Chinese Language Qualification (e.g. IGCSE Chinese) if
  Student has learned Chinese Language for less than 6 years while receiving primary and secondary education; OR
  Student has learned Chinese Language for 6 years or more in school, but has been taught an adapted and simpler Chinese Language curriculum not normally applicable to the majority of students in our local schools.
