How to apply

By Invitation

The Academy is a membership-based programme at the University of Hong Kong. Members are academically elite secondary school students from all over the world. Membership is by invitation. Selected secondary schools in Hong Kong and abroad are invited to nominate top ranking students for the Academy’s consideration. 


Secondary students who are currently in Form 2-6 or Grade 9-12 can also nominate themselves for one of two annual intakes to the Academy (28 February and 30 September). Those interested in self-nomination can apply HERE with a portfolio listing your extra-curricular activities and copies of the latest two-year academic transcripts for the Academy’s review.

Membership fee

There is no membership fee. Programmes are tailor-made for members and either free of charge or covered by members’ scholarships.
