(see below for “Important Notes”)
Due to keen competition, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications and all application documents on or before 1 December 2020. Interviews for both HKPFS and non-HKPFS applicants will be conducted starting from early December 2020. Applications received from 2 December 2020 to 29 January 2021 will be considered only if places are still available.
Due to keen competition, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications and application materials as soon as possible since (i) The Admission Panel will start reviewing applications once all required application materials are received. Applications will not be reviewed only until the end of every Round; (ii) Competitions at later rounds are more and more competitive as places are fewer and fewer. Offers could be made only when places are still available.
