Prepare For Your Applications

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis which means the sooner you apply, the sooner your application will be assessed. You are strongly advised to submit your application as early as possible.

Guided by the “Education-plus” approach, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) offers students a multidisciplinary learning environment that not only covers teacher education, but also a broad range of disciplines, including Creative Arts and Culture, Humanities and Language Studies, Science, Social Sciences, Technology and Sports.

Please explore our programmes on offer from the Programme List.

A holistic approach will be adopted in assessing applicants’ admissibility to our undergraduate programmes based on the overall profile of each applicant.

A list of acceptable non-local qualifications for meeting the general entrance requirements for undergraduate programmes can be found HERE. In addition, applicants are also required to fulfill the language requirements as accepted by the University.

Entrance scholarship will be granted automatically to outstanding applicants who obtain excellent academic results and demonstrate outstanding performance in admission interviews. In this regard, no separate application for scholarship is required.
