Applicants who are admitted to a full-time undergraduate programme are asked to indicate their preference for a college affiliation.

When assigning new students to different Colleges, it is desirable that each College have students from different faculties and departments to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and ideas and to widen the students’ intellectual perspectives. The system for assigning new students to Colleges takes into consideration the preferences of students, their study programmes and admission scores. Priority is given to new students to be assigned to their first-preference College if either of their parents is an alumnus/alumna of the College.

While students are assigned college affiliation based on their preferences as far as possible, they may not be assigned their preferred College owing to the limited number of places available.
