Applicants are normally required to have reached the age of 18 (except for Community Collegeprogrammes), and to provide information from their HKID card (for local applicants) or passport (for non-local applicants) for admission assessment and student records purposes. Applicants to award-bearingprogrammes will also be asked to present their HKID/passport for verification if applying in person atenrolment counters or to attach a copy of their HKID or passport if applying by post. Additional information may be required from applicants after the initial admission/enrolment assessment. It is necessary for applicants to provide the required supplementary information as otherwise the School may not be able to process the admission/enrolment further.
To study in Hong Kong, all non-local applicants are required to obtain a student visa issued by the Immigration Department of the HKSAR Government, except for those admitted to Hong Kong asdependants, who do not need prior approval before taking up full-time and part-time studies. Non-local applicants issued with a valid employment visa also do not need prior approval to pursue part-time studies. It is the responsibility of individual applicants to make appropriate visa arrangements. Admission to a HKU SPACE academic programme/course does not guarantee the issue of a student visa. Applicants may wish to note that part-time courses are generally not considered by the Immigration Department for visa purposes except for self-financed, part-time locally accredited taught postgraduate programmes awarded within the HKU system through HKU SPACE.
HKU SPACE reserves the right to cancel a course or a programme in cases of insufficient enrolment or unforeseen difficulties arising from running the course. In such circumstances, course fees would be refundable.
The Director may, at his discretion, refuse to admit an applicant.
