- Student Admission
The CUHK LLB is a full-time, four-year academic journey designed to both expand students’ intellectual horizons and give them a platform for future success in any number of careers. The LLB is not only the first step into becoming a member of a well-regarded and influential profession, but also provides students with the tools and knowledge to be engaged members of the Hong Kong community in general. Students will learn of Hong Kong’s shared heritage with other common law legal systems around the world, as well as its place within the broader Chinese context. The LLB includes the study of not only the practical elements of Hong Kong’s legal system, but also the theoretical and normative perspectives that undergird it. This approach provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the laws and legal principles upon which Hong Kong society is founded and operates.
|Medium of instruction:||English|
|How and when to apply:|
You may apply through the following admission schemes:
JUPAS (S6 Hong Kong Students who sit the HKDSE); or
Non-JUPAS (school leavers who sit for examinations other than the HKDSE).
For further information please visit the University's Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
Applicants applying on the strength of the HKDSE are required to fulfil the following minimum requirements:
Non-JUPAS applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Most Non-JUPAS applicants for admission to CUHK Law apply on the strength of their results in the IB, GCE Advanced-Level examinations, or other comparable secondary school qualifications. For 2017 entry, the minimum entrance requirements for applicants taking GCE/IAL are Grades AAA or above in 3 non-language GCE/IAL Advanced Level subjects OR in English plus 2 non-language GCE/IAL Advanced Level subjects attempted by applicants in one sitting. Students who take both Mathematics and Further Mathematics will have one of the subjects counted, but not both. For IB applicants the minimum is 38 out of 45 points, grade 5 for English (Higher Level) or grade 6 for English (Standard Level), and grade 4 in each of the remaining five subjects.
Meeting the above requirements does not guarantee admission – in the past, the vast majority of admitted students have exceeded them.
