“PolyU JUPAS Consultation Day 2023: Admissions Strategies” will be held on 20 May 2023 (Saturday), from 1pm to 5 pm.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) will hold the “PolyU JUPAS Consultation Day 2023: Admissions Strategies” in the afternoon of 20 May 2023 (1-5pm, Saturday). During the event, Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS) applicants will obtain the latest updates on PolyU’s programmes. This will prepare them to re-evaluate and finalise their programme choices by late July. Registration for the Consultation Day is now open at

On the event day, the Academic Registry will host a thematic seminar on “admissions strategies and interview skills” to introduce the latest admissions arrangements while current PolyU students will share their interview experiences and give useful tips for planning to study at PolyU. Academic units will also organise a series of programme information seminars, programme consultations, guided tours, and workshops in order for students to learn more about entrance requirements, programme curricula and features, as well as the learning journey of their preferred disciplines/programmes. Students may also have the opportunity to experience a one-on-one AI-generated admission interview for better interview preparation. In addition, an online chatbot, Academic Registry Virtual Trainee, has been designed to provide students with first-hand information regarding the latest score calculation method and past admission figures.

Starting from the 2023/24 academic year, PolyU will further optimise some of its departmental scheme-based admissions programmes to address societal needs. With the aim of nurturing leaders of tomorrow equipped with the knowledge and skills that are essential in our modern society, two programme elements, namely “Artificial Intelligence and Data Analysis” (AIDA) and “Innovation and Entrepreneurship” (IE), have been incorporated into the General University Requirements since the last academic year. Students can opt for a secondary Major or a Minor in AIDA and IE.

PolyU will continue to adopt flexible arrangements with regard to the minimum entrance requirements for JUPAS applicants in the 2023/24 academic year. Applicants who fall slightly short of the general entrance requirements for degree programmes, i.e. “3-3-2-2-3-3” (level 3 in both languages and level 2 in Mathematics and Liberal Studies together with level 3 in two additional electives) but meet the following conditions will be given special consideration for admission:


one HKDSE subject result is one level below the required level “3-3-2-2-3-3” with a total score in their best five subjects (any five subjects without subject weighting) at least one point higher than the scheme-based average score for the best five DSE subjects of the last admission exercise (for details, please refer to; and


they have selected PolyU’s degree programmes as their Band A choices, i.e. their first three priorities, in JUPAS.

After the event day, Academic Registry will further provide online Consultation Sessions during 3-5pm, 23-25 and 29-30 May to answer enquiries from JUPAS applicants regarding admissions matters. For details, please refer to
