Programmes with SY Admissions

The University has reserved a number of places for senior year (SY) admissions. Quality students holding recognised post-secondary qualifications or attending final year of a recognised sub-degree programme such as AD/HD or equivalent will be considered for senior year admissions with a view to minimising duplication of learning and promoting credit accumulation and transfer. The following programmes offer senior year admissions in 2023/24 entry:

UGC-funded Programmes
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Creative Arts and Culture
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Early Childhood and Family Studies
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in English Studies and Digital Communication

They are no longer entitled to apply for credit transfer of individual courses based on their entrance qualifications (i.e. no double benefit). To achieve the best learning outcomes, students admitted via senior year admission route may be required to study additional courses to meet the curriculum requirements. Necessary support will be given to ensure that they can cope with the additional workload during their studies.

General Entrance Requirements

Applicants who have possessed Associate Degree or Higher Diploma qualification awarded by recognised institutions with a good GPA or who are attending final year of a recognised Associate Degree / Higher Diploma programme or equivalent^ (subject to successful completion of the programme by August with a good GPA) are welcome to apply. Among the key factors where the University will consider admission of an applicant to senior year admissions, include equivalence of the subject discipline of the AD/HD to that of our bachelor’s degree programme and the academic performance of the applicant. However, those without relevant academic background will also be considered on an individual basis.

^ Normally, qualification which is of Level 4 or above under Qualifications Register (QR) of Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ).

Repeating of UGC-funded study across institutions* is generally discouraged. Inter-institutional transfers are normally not allowed except under exceptional circumstances.
