Selection of Programme Choices

Applicants may select from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 20 programme choices (which include full-time bachelor's degree programmes offered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions, associate degree programmes offered by CityU, higher diploma programmes offered by EdUHK and PolyU, and SSSDP full-time bachelor's degree programmes offered by the SSSDP institutions) from amongst those listed here.  There is no restriction on the number of degree / associate degree / higher diploma programmes to be selected from the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions, as long as the total does not exceed 20.

Applicants should ensure that they select the correct programmes they wish to choose.  If applicants have mistakenly selected a programme which they do not wish to choose, they will be considered for admission to that programmes.

Applicants are required to list their programme choices in order of preference.  The JUPAS iteration process is designed to assist the applicants in obtaining the best offer possible according to their interests as represented by the order of their preferences and their qualifications.  It is therefore important that the applicants select and prioritise their programme choices according to their true academic and career aspirations.

Preparation for Selecting the Programme Choices

Applicants should:

  • READ carefully the general entrance requirements and individual programme requirements, or consult the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions' and the SSSDP institutions' websites to ensure that they will be able to meet all the specified requirements (e.g. language and subject requirements at the HKDSE Examination results, etc.) of the respective institutions;

  • VISIT the JUPAS website under "Programme Changes" for updated information on the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions' and the SSSDP institutions' programmes;

  • GO THROUGH the Applicants' User Guide on submission of programme choices which will be available at the JUPAS website as from 21 September 2016; and

  • REFER to the Summary of Procedures for Submission of Programme Choices to familiarise themselves with the procedures for the selection of programme choices.

Confirmation of Successful Submission of Programme Choices

After successful submission of programme choices, there will be confirmation pages showing the programme choices selected and saved into applicants' JUPAS accounts.  Applicants should print out the confirmation page as record of the programme choices selected and submitted.

Applicants should retain copies of the confirmation pages as proof that their programme choices have successfully been submitted.  In the event of any disputes or queries, the JUPAS Office will ONLY accept these printed pages as official evidence.  No other documentation in hard copy or electronic form will be accepted.

Applicants are also advised to log on their JUPAS accounts again to check and confirm that their programme choices have successfully been submitted and saved.

Deadline for Submission of Programme Choices

The deadline for submission of programme choices is 1 December 2016 (11:59 pm).

Applicants are advised to submit their programme choices earlier to avoid heavy internet traffic near the deadline.
