Programme Entrance Requirements

The University has adopted broad-based admission to study programmes in Business and Social Sciences Faculties.  In addition to the current Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) (BBA) programme, starting from the 2016 intake, a distinct BBA - Risk and Insurance Management (BBA-RIM) will be offered.  The Faculty of Arts will implement a hybrid admission model such that programme-based admission will be adopted in parallel with the current broad-based admission.  There is no specific Programme Entrance Requirements. However, applicants may wish to note the criteria for allocation of Major Programmes/Discipline Majors/Streams of individual faculties published in the following faculty webpages:

Faculty of Arts (
Faculty of Business (
Faculty of Social Sciences (

For applicants who have learned Chinese Language for less than 6 years while receiving primary and secondary education; or have learned Chinese Language for 6 years or more in schools, but have been taught an adapted and simpler Chinese Language curriculum not normally applicable to the majority of students in local schools, the University will accept a Grade C or above in the alternative Chinese Language qualifications of GCE O-Level/GCSE/IGCSE as an alternative to the HKDSE Chinese Language.

The subjects stipulated in General Entrance Requirements refer to the senior secondary subjects listed as Category A.
2. Applied Learning subjects in Category B will be used as additional supporting information.

Other Language subjects in Category C will be recognised as unspecified elective subjects. The minimum requirement is Grade E.

Passes in HKDSE subjects can be obtained at one or more sittings. The best grade for a subject will be used in the calculation of the score in case of multiple attempts. There is no penalty or mark deducted for repeated sittings of a subject.
