Direct application is the non-JUPAS route for those applicants who do not have Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) results, or have those results but also possess other qualifications. As direct applicants are selected based on a variety of qualifications, which may include GCE System, International Baccalaureate, Post-Secondary Study, Non-local/Overseas Qualification, selection is made on an individual basis. Performance in selection interviews, where applicable, is also an important assessment criterion.

Applicants holding a 12-year school-leaving qualification or a partially completed sub-degree qualification may apply for admission to the first-year studies in the Department with an undeclared major (Non-JUPAS code: 1106). They will enter a major after one year of study.
