University Announcement: Arrangements for Teaching and Learning in Semester A 2022/23 [28 June 2022]
Generally, starting from mid-July, successful applicants will receive an email notification to retrieve the enrolment notification available in the Admission Application System. To formally enroll as a student at the University, applicants are required to complete the in-person enrolment procedures, including the qualification checking (if applicable), at the time and venue indicated in the enrolment notification. Prior to in-person enrolment, applicants are required to complete the pre-enrolment process online, which will entitle them to use all electronic resources available at the University.
The University places all students’ health and safety as a top priority. For the latest quarantine measures, please visit the COVID-19 Thematic Website.
An email, which contains a QR code for entry to the University, will be sent to students one day prior to their scheduled time for enrolment. To ensure their smooth entry to the campus, students are advised to print the enrolment notification and show both the QR code and the notification to the security staff upon entry to the University.
All visitors will be required to scan the LeaveHomeSafe venue QR code using the LeaveHomeSafe mobile application and show the vaccination records or medical exemption certificates at the campus entrance. For information on the application, please visit https://www.leavehomesafe.gov.hk/en/.
Starting from 26 September 2022, all visitors are required to have received at least three doses of COVID-19 vaccines, or have one dose of vaccine within the last 6 months. Only those who are unfit to be vaccinated due to a medical condition will be exempted, and only when a valid medical certificate is presented.
Students during the 3-day medical surveillance period after entering/returning to Hong Kong, can enter campus as long as they show no signs of COVID-19 symptoms. If any student’s body temperature on the day of enrolment is at or higher than 37.5°C or he/she develops fever, upper respiratory tract infection symptoms or sudden loss of taste or smell, please do not come to the campus and consult a doctor at once.
