For enquiries, non-local students are welcome to contact the Registry (Admissions, Registrations and Academic Planning Section) for details by email.

•How does the University handle applicants whose exams have been cancelled?

The University will closely monitor the release of the updated assessment details for candidates made by the relevant examination boards. The final decision will be made after consideration and approval by the relevant committees of the University.

•What advice is the University offering to applicants who are unable to take an English-language test due to test centres being closed? 

The University will extend the English test submission deadline for applicants who are unable to present English-language test results due to test centres being closed. It is hoped that the test centres will be re-opened and applicants will be able to take the tests later. In the event that the test centres will be closed for an extended period, the University will consider using other means to assess an applicant’s English language level. One of which is admission interview to assess an applicant’s oral skills. 

•Is the University still accepting applications? Are there any restrictions being placed on international applicants?

Applications for the 2021/22 entry for non-local applicants are now open. More details can be found at:
