Application Procedures

Interviews or Tests

Applicants may be invited to participate in orientation events, attend interviews or sit for tests, depending on the programmes which the applicants have applied for.  The 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions (the Institutions) concerned will notify applicants via one or more of the following channels: mails, phones, SMS^, personal emails#^, the message boxes in their JUPAS accounts, and / or via their websites.  In this regard, applicants should ensure that their contact information (such as email addresses#^, phone numbers and mailing addresses, etc.) is up to date and correct, otherwise they may not receive important messages and correspondence from the Institutions.

It is applicants' responsibilities to regularly check all information from, and messages sent by, the JUPAS Office and the Institutions by post, via phone, the JUPAS online application system or email and / or SMS.  If they fail to do so, they will miss important information.  The JUPAS Office will not further remind applicants to check for information update.

If applicants are not invited to interviews or tests, it does not mean that they are not being considered.  Each JUPAS participating-institution, SSSDP institution and programme has its own selection mechanism.  Enquiries related to the details of interview / test arrangements should be directed to the respective programme of the Institutions.

Before attending interviews or tests, applicants should obtain permission from their schools for leave of absence if the interviews or tests are scheduled during school hours.  Applicants who are unable to attend interviews or tests should inform the JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions concerned in advance so that alternative arrangements may be made for them, if possible.

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 any information related to 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) shall prevail.

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

As email is one of the channels that the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will use to contact applicants, applicants must ensure that the setting of their personal email accounts will not filter out or place such correspondence in the trash / junk / spam folders.
