Admission

For the 2017 entry, the Academy admits 67* Year 1 students into the 4-year programme through JUPAS and non-JUPAS schemes, and an additional 58* students with an associate degree/higher diploma or equivalent qualification through the non-JUPAS scheme directly into Year 3 of the 4-year programme.

For admission to our programme, both JUPAS and Non-JUPAS students must satisfy two sets of requirements: the General University Admission Requirements as well as the more subject-specific Programme Admission Requirements. For the latter applicants will be required to submit a portfolio of 4 documentations of outcomes of their personal creative practice and 1 written text from the one of the areas of art history, art theory, or art criticism/appreciation, through which they will be ranked initially. Selected applicants then need to attend practical tests and an interview, which are conducted during mid-March for Non-JUPAS applicants and June to July for JUPAS applicants of each year. Details on portfolio submission, practical tests and interview will be announced to applicants starting from late January each year.

To give applicants further information and an opportunity for face-to-face consultation and enquiry about portfolio submission, portfolio briefing and review day will be scheduled. Please see the details as follows:
