Online enrolment for 75 Mainland institutions to begin

     The Education Bureau (EDB) today (February 24) reminded students who have plans to enrol in the Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions that they should file their online applications starting tomorrow (February 25).

     According to the detailed arrangements for the Scheme in 2014 announced by the Ministry of Education, 75 Mainland higher education institutions will consider the admission of Hong Kong students based on their results in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination, thus exempting them from taking the Joint Entrance Examination for Universities on the Mainland. Candidates sitting for the HKDSE Examination in 2014 are eligible for enrolment in the Scheme.

     "Similar to last year's arrangements, the enrolment process will consist of online application and subsequent on-site confirmation of application. The Ministry of Education has commissioned the Co-Office of the Mainland Chinese Universities and Colleges of P.R. China for the Joint Examinations and Enrolment of the Students from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and Overseas Chinese-Resident Areas and Countries (Joint Enrolment Office) to handle online application and admissions screening. It has also commissioned the China Education Exchange (HK) Centre for on-site confirmation of applications, eligibility vetting and admissions publicity," an EDB spokesman said.

     Students should file their online applications from February 25 to March 20 at the website of the Joint Enrolment Office ( by clicking on "Hong Kong Students Application" under the menu of "Joint Admission". Students who have completed online application and made online appointment for on-site confirmation should attend in person from March 15 to 31 (excluding Sundays) at the following addresses:

   272-284 Des Voeux Road Central, Sheung Wan,

2. Centre for on-site confirmation for the Scheme

   Education Bureau, 19 Suffolk Road, Kowloon Tong,
   Enquiry hotline: 3698 4022
   (Provision of enquiries during the on-site
   confirmation period from 10am to 6pm only)

     Candidates should bring the following documents in order to complete on-site confirmation:

(d) originals and copies of awards and other relevant learning materials (if any).

     Candidates should, after completing online application, attend on-site confirmation in person at the time and place confirmed by the online application system. They should also pay an enrolment fee of $420 in cash during on-site confirmation.

     All applicants enrolling in the Scheme should complete the on-site confirmation process before entering the admission stage. In case applicants cannot attend on-site confirmation at the time and place previously confirmed by the online application system, they should log in to the online application website ( again and reserve another time and place for on-site confirmation.

     According to the admission procedure for 2014, institutions may arrange interviews based on the application information submitted by candidates. The formal admission stage will start in late July. Institutions will announce admission results on the website and arrange supplementary enrolment based on their admission results in early August.

     There are three enhancements to the scheme in 2014. First, there are five more institutions participating in the scheme compared with the number in 2013. The 75 institutions come from 14 provinces and municipalities on the Mainland, so students will have more choices. (See the list of institutions in the Annex.)

     Second, there will be more flexibility as regards minimum entrance requirements. For students nominated by their schools under the School Principal Nomination Scheme, an alternative minimum entrance requirement of "3232", i.e. attaining Level 3 for Chinese Language and Mathematics and Level 2 for English Language and Liberal Studies, would be available. The minimum requirement for general admission under the Scheme maintains the level of "3322" (i.e. attaining Level 3 for Chinese Language and English Language, and Level 2 for Mathematics and Liberal Studies), and "2211" (i.e. attaining Level 2 in Chinese Language and English Language and Level 1 in Mathematics and Liberal Studies) for candidates applying for arts and sports programmes.

     As for the enrolment procedure, Student Learning Profiles will be submitted by the applicants directly at their convenience during online application.

     In addition, the EDB and Hok Yau Club have continued to jointly compile a Chinese handbook on the Scheme, which provides comprehensive information on the Scheme and further study on the Mainland, including information on all the institutions participating in the scheme, the programmes offered, strategy on programme choices, and sharing by graduates of Mainland universities. The e-version of the handbook and details of the Scheme have been posted on the website of the EDB (
