HKUST participates in Hong Kong’s Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS). Through JUPAS, HKUST admits local students taking the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) examination. Eligible local HKDSE students interested in studying at HKUST should submit their applications to JUPAS in accordance with the relevant timeline.

Non-local HKDSE students should submit their applications through our Online Application System as students with International Qualifications

2024 Entry Requirements

JUPAS applicants applying to HKUST are expected to satisfy the University’s general admissions requirements of four core subjects and two elective subjects with minimum attainment levels of “332A33”, and specific requirements set out by individual Schools or programs on subjects and subject attainment levels (if any).


  • Level 3 in English Language;
  • Level 3 in Chinese Language;
  • Level 2 in Mathematics (Compulsory Part);
  • “Attained” in Citizenship and Social Development +;
  • Level 3 in Elective 1;

Non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students may use an alternative Chinese subject, an HKDSE Other Language subject, or an HKDSE Applied Learning Chinese subject to satisfy the University’s Chinese language requirement. 

+ “Attained” in Citizenship and Social Development will not be included in the admissions score calculation, which will only require 5 subject scores.

# Grade C or above in Category C subject can count as Elective 2 (for some programs).


Each HKUST program uses a specific formula to calculate admissions scores, based on the HKDSE scores of eligible JUPAS applicants. Please click here for the program specific minimum requirements and score formulae of 2024 JUPAS admissions.
