Entry requirements

For students from United States

A minimum score of 24 with at least grade 4 in 2 Higher Level subjects. A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 80 for the Internet-based test or 550 for the paper-based test; OR An overall Band Score of 6 in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).

For international students

If you have obtained HKDSE results as well as other qualifications (e.g. associate degree, higher diploma, diploma, certificate, etc.), either of which alone is sufficient to qualify you for consideration for admission to our schemes / programmes, you can apply either through JUPAS on the basis of HKDSE results or directly to PolyU on the basis of other qualifications. However, you can only choose to apply through one of these two routes for schemes / programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year. If you apply through JUPAS and to PolyU concurrently, your direct application to PolyU will NOT be considered.

GCE A-level / International A-level: GCE Advanced Level or International Advanced Level with passes in 3 AL, OR 2 AL and 2 AS subjects

International Baccalaureate (IB): A minimum score of 24 with at least grade 4 in 2 Higher Level subjects.

Non-local applicants are required to meet the following English language requirement:

A Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 80 for the Internet-based test or 550 for the paper-based test; OR
