Introductory Message

Welcome to the Electronic Advance Application System for Post-secondary Programmes "E-APP".

E-APP is a one-stop online application system developed by the Education Bureau for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE) candidates of current year. It provides a fast and convenient application channel for the HKDSE candidates to lodge advance applications before the announcement of HKDSE results for full time locally-accredited sub-degree and undergraduate programmes (including most of the eligible programmes under the “Non-means-tested Subsidy Scheme for Self-financing Undergraduate Studies in Hong Kong”) that are not covered under the Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS). E-APP applicants may receive conditional offer(s) from institutions before the announcement of HKDSE results.
