Shortlisted applicants will be informed of the respective arrangements by email in around May/June (after HKDSE examination) and in July (after the release of HKDSE results). Given the unforeseeable circumstance of the COVID-19 development, the School may arrange earlier interview this year before the HKDSE examination (to be confirmed). Please watch out for interview invitation and announcement on our website for updated information.

 

 

12. How will the interviews be conducted?

 

The interview will normally involve a group discussion in English.

 

 

13. Will applicants who put HKU Business School programme in Band B be considered?

 

Yes, but as our intake places are limited and that there are many strong applicants putting HKU Business School programmes in their Band A choice(s), the chance of Band B applicants being admitted is generally not high in past admissions exercises.

 

 

14. Is there any entrance scholarship available to HKDSE applicants? How can I apply?

Both the University and HKU Business School offer entrance scholarships to HKDSE students with outstanding academic performance. Details will be announced before the release of HKDSE results.
