The University is committed to providing equal opportunities for academic pursuits. Students with disabilities intending to apply for admission can view the details of the comprehensive range of services and facilities available at the University on our website at: https://www2.osa.cuhk.edu.hk/disability/.
The University’s admissions policy includes a commitment to the promotion of equal opportunities. Admission to the University is based on merit, using consistent selection criteria and is directed towards the selection of students who have the academic competence and motivation to benefit from the programmes they intend to follow.
Students who declare a disability in their application will be contacted by the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid (OAFA) to provide advice and assistance at an early stage. Prospective applicants may also approach the OAFA to discuss their needs and view the details of the services and facilities available on the University website. OAFA will ensure that applicants with disabilities are provided with the necessary assistance during the application process.
Local school students with disabilities may apply for admission through the JUPAS Sub-system for Applicants with a Disability, which is intended for such applicants to find out as early as possible the special assistance and facilities the University can provide to them on their admission. It also helps the University identify these students to provide help and advice at an early stage. JUPAS applicants may receive an offer through the Sub-system, and they will be notified by the JUPAS Office. For details on JUPAS application through the Sub-system, please refer to the JUPAS website: www.jupas.edu.hk.
