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 entirely 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.  It will NOT reduce the chance of admission of applicants who submitted their disability information.  Such arrangements are intended to enable such applicants to find out as early as possible the special assistance and facilities the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions could provide to them on their admissions.  The arrangements also help the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions identify those applicants with disabilities so that they could provide help and advice 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 to the JUPAS office?

Applicants with disabilities who wish to declare and submit information in relation to their disabilities for consideration by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions 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 4 December 2019 (11:59 pm).
