Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs for Hybrid Admission Model

I am a JUPAS applicant. What is the Hybrid Admission Model adopted by the School of Creative Media (SCM)?

The School of Creative Media (SCM) introduces the Hybrid Admission Model starting from 2018 entry. With the Hybrid Admission Model, JUPAS applicants may apply for School-based Admission (i.e. JS1041 School of Creative Media) or/and Major-based Admission (i.e. JS1042 Bachelor of Arts in Creative Media, JS1043 Bachelor of Science in Creative Media or JS1044 Bachelor of Arts and Science in New Media).

Successful applicants may be admitted to either a specific major or SCM with an undeclared major. Applicants admitted to SCM need to declare their major towards the end of their first year of study at SCM and they will have a free choice of the above three majors. 

How should I choose the JUPAS programmes offered by the School of Creative Media (SCM)?

Each applicant can choose any one JUPAS programme or any combination of the four JUPAS programmes offered by SCM. Depending on your interests in our majors, you may choose the corresponding SCM programme as your JUPAS choice.  To increase your chances in getting into SCM, you may consider to choose JS1041 School of Creative Media in addition to your choice in our major programme. If you are successfully admitted to JS1041, you will be studying with an undeclared major in your first year and will enjoy a free choice of majors after the first year of study.

If I apply for more than one programme, how many portfolio should I submit?

You are required to submit only one portfolio even applying for more than one SCM programme.

What is the difference between School-based Admission and Major-based Admission?

Under School-based Admission or Major-based Admission, students will be studying a 4-year bachelor's degree programme.

If you are successfully admitted to School-based admission, you will be studying a broad range of School core courses and Gateway Education (GE) courses during your first year of study. Students need to declare their majors towards the end of first year and will have a free choice of majors after completing one year of study.

Or, if you are successfully admitted to Major-based admission, you will be studying your major directly in your first-year studies.

Is there any advantage if I am admitted to School-Based Admission?

Applicants admitted to School-Based Admission will be studying with an undeclared major during their first year. They will enjoy a free choice of major after completing their first year of study at SCM. Therefore, students can explore the three SCM majors through the first-year studies and student advising before declaring their majors.
