HKDSE students will apply for admission to first-year studies at the Department of Media and Communication with an undeclared major.
During their first year, students will study a broad range of Gateway Education (GE), College Foundation and College-specified courses.
Students will enter a major after the first year of study. The top 40% of students [based on (i) cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of Semester B; (ii) no failed grades in any courses in Semesters A and B; and (iii) completion of at least 30 credit units in Semesters A and B, including the number of credit units specified by the College / home academic unit for its required courses] will have free choice of the majors offered by the Department of Media and Communication. The remaining 60% of students will be allocated a major of their choice, subject to the availability of places and the selection criteria set by individual majors.
