Moreover, factors such as values, attitudes, personality, maturity, self-understanding, concern for public affairs, analytical and problem-solving ability are important for admission consideration.


General Entrance Requirements - Direct (Non-JUPAS) Applicants: Senior Year Entry

Senior Year Admission generally refers to admission to year 3 of 4-year curriculum programmes. To provide more study pathways for sub-degree graduates, the University has set up a Senior Year Admission Scheme for eligible candidates to apply. The University does not have specific cGPA or average score requirement or senior year student admission. However, as the competition for admission is keen, past entrants on average are with a normalized cGPA of 3.00 or above, or an equivalent average score.
