Non-JUPAS - Departmental Scheme-based Admission

Departmental Scheme-based Admission

 

Starting from the 2022/23 academic year, PolyU will adopt departmental scheme-based admission instead of programme-based admission in order to provide a broader educational base and a more flexible progression pathway for students, as well as a more agile mechanism to meet changing societal manpower needs.  These changes will provide greater flexibility for students in their choice of degree programmes and specialisations.

 

Students are free to select their major/specialisations at the end of Year 1 study unless specified otherwise by schemes concerned. Out of the 31 Schemes on offer in 2022/23 admission exercise, nine Schemes (listed below) have set screening criteria for students to select their major/specialism towards the end of the first year of study. However, applicants with outstanding academic performance will be considered, at the time of admission, for advance placement (with no restrictions to select a desired major/specialism within a Scheme). These applicants will also be notified of this special provision, if applicable, in their Notice of Offer or by separate email in advance of their acceptance. Prospective students can visit the website of the nine Schemes for more details:

Future-ready Professional Education

 

To prepare students for the challenges brought by the emerging technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and in support of the development of innovation and technology industries in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area, elements of "AI and Data Analytics"(AIDA) and "Innovation and Entrepreneurship"(IE) will be embedded into our undergraduate programme curriculum from the 2022/23 academic year in three forms: (a) as mandatory components of the General University Requirements for all students; (b) as minors; (c) as a distinctive block of subjects forming part of the two integrated "X + schemes", i.e. the schemes of "X + AIDA" and "X + IE", where X is a block of subjects selected from an existing programme or specially designed to satisfy disciplinary knowledge requirements.
