COVID-19 Information:

• How can applicants contact the university about their application?
For enquiries, non-local students are welcome to contact us for details at: www.eduhk.hk/acadprog/nonlocal.html#para10.

• How is the university handling applicants whose exams have been cancelled?
Owing to the recent announcement of cancellation of UK GCE and IB examinations this year, the University will monitor the release of the updated assessment details for candidates by the relevant examination boards. The final decision on applicants affected by this will be made after consideration and approval by the relevant committees of the University.

• What advice is the university offering to applicants unable to take an English-language test due to centers being closed? 
The University has extended the English test submission deadline for applicants who are unable to present English-language test results due to centres being closed. It is hoped that the test centres will open later and applicants will be able to take the tests. In the event that the 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?
The University has extended the application deadline for non-local applicants applying for bachelor’s degree programmes to 31 May 2020. More details can be found at: www.eduhk.hk/degree/nonlocal_dates.htm.
