Principal Recommended Admission Scheme

Principal Recommended Admission Scheme


The Principal Recommended Admission Scheme (“the Scheme”) aims at giving due recognition to students who have made distinguished achievements in academic and/or non-academic areas such as sports, music, etc., contributed to community services, or demonstrated leadership abilities. Admission quotas have been reserved for eligible nominees and conditional offers will be given before the release of HKDSE examination results.

To stimulate students with extraordinarily, distinguished performance in academic and/or non-academic areas to study at HSUHK, firm offers, regardless of their HKDSE examination results, will be issued via the Scheme alongside conditional offers.


Students who meet the following criteria are eligible to be considered under the Scheme:

  • Local Student* / residents with right of abode in Hong Kong; and
  • Applicant of HSUHK undergraduate programmes; and
  • School applicants attending the HKDSE examination; and

Important Notes

  • If the school would like to recommend students for admission to programmes under Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP), i.e. BBA-SCM, BSc-AIN, BSc-AC, BSc-DSBI, BMSIM and BA-AD, please follow the School Principal’s Nominations (SPN) in the JUPAS instead of Principal Recommended Admission Scheme.
  • Student nominees must first submit application via the HSUHK Undergraduate Application System or Electronic Advance Application System for Post-secondary Programmes (E-APP) and complete all the application procedures (including uploading the HKID Card / valid travel document, school report(s) for the recent two academic years to UAS and settling the application fees) before joining the Scheme.
