Hong Kong

‌The University of Glasgow has been welcoming students from Hong Kong since 1883. We have long-standing relationships with many institutions in Hong Kong, as well as strong alumni links.

Scotland and Hong Kong are both small, flexible, advanced economies. Scotland has a population of over 5 million; slightly smaller than the population of Hong Kong at 7 million. Chinese culture is very influential in Glasgow, with a wealth of Chinese restaurants, supermarkets and traditional Chinese medicine stores in the city. Glasgow even has a small China Town.

The University of Glasgow Hong Kong Society is open to all those with Chinese/Hong Kong backgrounds or those with a general interest in Hong Kong.

Entry Requirements

The University will consider students with HKALE, International Baccalaureate or HKDSE, Hong Kong Diploma for Secondary Education. Students who have taken a recognised foundation or access programme or equivalent will also be considered. Entry to some courses may differ.

Representatives

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
