Higher Diploma (5 Semesters)*
Want to start on the bright path to university? JUPAS is not the only way to get yourself into university. Specially designed for S7 graduates, the IVE and HKDI Higher Diploma Programmes offer another opportunity for university entrance. They enable graduates to progress to university through a non-JUPAS path. Students may be granted exemptions in relevant individual courses and therefore a much shorter time will be needed to complete the degree programme. Apart from degree programmes offered by local universities, another option for Higher Diploma graduates is degree programmes offered by overseas universities or
top-up degree programmes for higher qualifications and preparation for future development.
