PolyU Sports Talent Admissions OSRS and SALSA

At PolyU, we have been promoting sporting culture for 26 years

PolyU provides opportunities to student-athletes who are eligible to represent Hong Kong in regional or international competitions with remarkable achievements in sports to pursue their undergraduate studies.

Since 1998, PolyU has all along been supportive to sports talent who have participated in major international competitions, or are members of Hong Kong SAR Team/Junior Team through Outstanding Sportsmen Recommendation Scheme (OSRS). To take a step further, PolyU recently has also joined the Student-Athlete Learning Support and Admission Scheme (SALSA) as a sub-scheme of OSRS.
