E-APP (2017/18 Academic Year)

The Electronic Advance Application System for Post-secondary Programme (E-APP) was first launched by the Education Bureau in February 2012. It is an online application system developed for the secondary school candidates sitting for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education to lodge advance application for full-time locally-accredited undergraduate and sub-degree programmes not covered under the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS) before the announcement of the HKDSE Examinations results. It provides an alternative application channel to supplement those offered by individual institutions.

 

As at the closing date of the E-APP application on 30 June 2018, over 49,600 applications from about 20,200 HKDSE applicants were processed. Moreover, there were over 613,300 visitors browsing the E-APP website within the seven months from December 2017 to June 2018.
