Online Application System for PhD and MPhil Admission

Welcome to the Online Application System for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil) programmes of the University of Hong Kong. Please read the information on the Graduate School homepage under “Prospective Students” carefully to make sure you understand the application procedures and requirements before completing the form.

All applicants are required to create an account to submit the application.  The account is valid for 4 weeks. If you do not submit your application within 4 weeks after account creation, your account and all information entered will be deleted from the system.  Save your data in the online application form from time to time.  The system will automatically log you out if it is idle for 30 minutes.  All unsaved data will be lost.  Click here for the operational guide of the Online Application System. 

The applications will be reviewed by the relevant academic units.  Applicants may be required to attend an interview and/or sit for a test arranged by the proposed department of study as part of the selection process.  The Graduate School will inform all applicants of the result of their applications via email in about three to four months after the deadline of application.  Applicants may also check the result via the Online Application System.  Under NO circumstances will the Graduate School inform applicants of the results through telephone.

Applicants who have indicated interest in applying for admission to the Joint PhD Programme(s) will NOT be notified separately of the results of their applications for the Joint PhD Programme(s).  Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted individually by the Faculties/Departments concerned for further processing of their Joint PhD applications.

Please refer to the Personal Information Collection Statement and the Privacy Policy Statement of the University for details. For unsuccessful applications, information will normally be destroyed 6 months after the release of the application result.
