An official transcript should be requested from every college or university you have attended, except those undertaken in The University of Hong Kong.  Please do not omit the back side of the transcript if it contains information on the grading system.  Photocopies of the transcript request form may be used to request transcripts from additional institutions.  The official transcript with the transcript request form should be sent directly by the registrar of the institutions to the MSc Programme Office, Department of Computer Science.  Please note that the University will only ACCEPT originals and copies of the documents that have been duly declared as true copies before a notary public (e.g. a Commissioner for Oaths at a City District Office in Hong Kong).  Copies of documents may be certified by the appropriate officials of your home institute if you are an overseas applicant.  No photocopies will be accepted.

Application Deadlines

Round # Completed application deadline
Main round 31 December 2021
Clearing round 14 April 2022 (HKT 12:00 noon) 

To be considered for a round, you must submit a complete application on the day of the deadline.  If you submit an application earlier in a round, which we encourage, you will have more time in which to schedule an interview (Interviews are by invitation only.)  Applications received after the main round deadline are rolled to the next round.

The results for admission in September are normally available by July of the same year.  Hence, applicants who do not hear from the Faculty of Engineering by 31 July 2022 may assume the application to be unsuccessful.
