Specific Programme Requirements
Some programmes have additional entrance requirements for local candidates. Candidates not taking local examinations are expected to fulfil these subject requirements at equivalent level. Please refer to Appendix II of the Undergraduate Prospectus for such specific programme requirements. Candidates who are applying on the basis of Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) and Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE), please click here for the specific programme requirements.
