Application Procedures

Application Period and Method

Application Period

Applicants who wish to apply for admission to the programmes offered under JUPAS and are eligible to apply via JUPAS should submit and complete their applications via the JUPAS online application system from 19 September 2018 (9:00 am) to 5 December 2018 (11:59 pm).

Applicants are advised to submit their applications earlier to avoid heavy internet traffic near the deadline (i.e. 5 December 2018 (11:59 pm)).

Late applications may be accepted on an EXCEPTIONAL basis if applicants could support their late applications with good reasons for the consideration of JUPAS, whose decision is final.  All late accepted applications will be subject to a late charge of HK$350 in addition to the application fee of HK$460.

Applicants who wish to submit their late applications via JUPAS MUST 

  1. firstly create their respective JUPAS accounts at the JUPAS online application system, and

  2. contact the JUPAS Office in advance to make an appointment for the submission, as the JUPAS Office is required to schedule time-slots for assisting applicants in completing the submission process.  As such, submissions without prior appointments will NOT be entertained.

Late applications submitted after the deadline of 22 May 2019 (5:00 pm) will NOT be accepted. 

Completion of Application Procedures

Applicants should complete ALL of the following steps for the submission of applications.


Applicants must complete ALL the necessary steps below:

The Online Application System User Guide for Applicants (Applicants' User Guide) on submission of application will be available at the JUPAS website as from 19 September 2018.

Before submitting the applications, applicants are advised to go through the Applicants' User Guide which is a step-by-step demonstration of the procedures on submission of application.

School and Non-school Applicants

Applicants who are current secondary school students MUST apply via JUPAS as school applicants regardless of whether they may be sitting for the 2019 HKDSE Examination as private candidates.

Applicants who are not current secondary school students MUST apply via JUPAS as non-school applicants.

ALL applicants (school and non-school applicants) applying via JUPAS on the strength of their HKDSE Examination results are considered on the same basis by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions.

Since important messages and correspondence from the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will be sent via applicants' mobile phone numbers and / or mailing addresses, applicants SHOULD NEVER share their mobile phone numbers or mailing addresses with other applicants in order to protect the information contained in, the progress of, and the outcomes of their JUPAS applications.

^ Emails and SMS are delivered via third party network providers and therefore the JUPAS Office is not responsible for any delay, loss, transfer, amendment or damage arising from the transmission process via third party network providers.

Should there be any discrepancies between information contained in emails and SMS and applicants' JUPAS accounts, the information contained in the latter (i.e. the JUPAS accounts) is final.

Applicants are strongly advised to log on their JUPAS accounts to double-check the related information.
