About JUPAS

Applicants with Disabilities

1 How will the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions consider disability information submitted by applicants?

It will be entirely up to the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions to decide how the disability information will be considered, and is independent of the JUPAS Office.  In this regard, applicants should consult the general entrance requirements and individual programme requirements and the websites of the respective institutions for further information.

2 If applicants submitted their disability information, will this reduce their chance of admission?

NO.  For applicants who have submitted their disability, their chance of admission of applicants remain equal to others.  Such submissions aim to enable such applicants to find out the special assistance and facilities the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions could provide to them on their admissions as early as possible.  The arrangements also help the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions to identify those applicants with disabilities so that they could provide assistance at an early stage and give appropriate considerations to the applicants concerned.

3 If applicants have applied for special examination arrangements at the HKEAA, do they still need to submit details of their disabilities in their JUPAS accounts?

If applicants wish to declare and submit information in relation to their disabilities for consideration by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions, they are required to submit details of their disabilities and upload supporting documents via their JUPAS accounts even if they have applied for special examination arrangements at the HKEAA.

The deadline for submission of disability information and uploading of supporting documents via the JUPAS accounts is 6 December 2023 (11:59 pm).

Please refer to the section on Applicants with Disabilities for more details.

4 If applicants have undergone name changes but the names contained in the supporting documents are the previous ones, what should they do?

Applicants must inform the JUPAS Office immediately and submit copies of Deed Poll and / or identity documents containing the previous names for its necessary actions.

Please refer to the section on Personal Profile for more details.
