No diploma but still able to study at HKU
Would you like to study at HKU but are you not in possession of a VWO, HAVO or MBO (level 4) diploma? You should state this in your application through Studielink. You may still be able to take part in the admissions procedure for the programme of your choice.
Perhaps you have already applied but you didn’t pass your final exam. If so, please contact the HKU Student Affairs Service Desk.
Passed the entrance exam? Further test required
If you have been admitted on the basis of the entrance exam (subject to conditions), we will invite you to take the 18+/21+ test. This involves testing whether your general level of development is sufficient for studying at HKU. If you pass the test, you can enrol in your HKU programme. Please note that the Creative Media and Game Technologies programmes have a math requirement as well!
Please check out the conditions for taking the 18+/21+ test below.
Can’t access your original diploma?
Do you have an asylum residence permit (temporary or permanent) and can no longer access your original diplomas? Please contact the Service Desk Student Affairs to discuss your options.
