Guide for Applicants Instructions on completing the application form 1. Please complete the form in English and print in block letters. 2. Please complete ALL parts in full. 3. A "non-local student" is defined as one who requires a student visa to study in Hong Kong or is staying in Hong Kong under the "Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates" (IANG).

Non-local applicants who possess only a visitor or a tourist visa can neither be registered as students nor commence their studies until they have obtained student visas. If you hold a dependent visa, you do not require a student visa and will be regarded as a local student. If you hold a work permit and take up a part-time programme, you will also be regarded as a local student. If you hold neither a work permit nor a dependent visa, it is unlikely that the Hong Kong Immigration Department will grant you a student visa to take up a part-time programme. Throughout the course of study, it is the responsibility of individual students to ensure that their visas are valid.

Non-local applicants with IANG status are required to attach a copy of their valid visa to the completed application form. On admission, they will be required to provide the original visa for verification.
