Undergraduate Admissions

IPO adopts two models of undergraduate admission: School-based and Program-based, to provide flexibility and give choices to applicants who are clear about their academic and career interests and opt for Program-based Admission, as well as those who prefer more time to explore their interests after admission and opt for School-based Admission.  The number of students admitted via School-based Admission would be at least equal to the number of students admitted via Program-based Admission.

The following programs are currently offered under IPO:

Program-based Admission

Prospective students select IPO programs they wish to join at the admission stage. Upon successful admission, they will enroll into the interdisciplinary program starting from the first year of study.

Local mainstream secondary school students should apply via the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS). Local students with non-HKDSE qualifications, as well as non-local students should apply via Direct Entry Admission. Please visit join.ust.hk for information about application procedure, admission requirements and important dates.

For specific entry requirements of each Program, please click here.

Remarks: IIM will ONLY admit Year 1 students who have entered any one School through School-based Admission.

 

School-based Admission

Applicants select one of the four Schools (Science, Engineering, Business and Management, Humanities and Social Science) they wish to join at the admission stage. Please visit join.ust.hk for application details.

Upon successful admission and after completion of one year of study at one of the Schools, students will join the Major Selection Exercise to declare a major within her/his School or an interdisciplinary major offered by IPO.
