How to Apply

By now, you know that Hong Kong is the place to be for an incomparable educational experience. Here's an overview of everything you need to do to apply, arrive, and get started!

  • Check out each of our institutions. Decide which ones best suit your goals.
  • Contact the institutions and programmes that interest you. They can give you more information about admissions requirements, program-specific criteria, and application deadlines.
  • Make sure you qualify for admission. International schools and methods of assessment vary widely, as do prerequisites for specific institutions. In general you will need to have completed secondary school, have earned satisfactory results on your country's Leaving or Aptitude exams, if offered (for example, A Levels, Baccalaureate, SATs, etc.). If English is not your mother tongue, you'll need to take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), or equivalent examinations. Of course, you should contact the institutions for more detailed information.
  • Apply. The timetable for this varies by institution, so make sure to confirm what paperwork you'll need to do, and when to submit it.
