The Division of Landscape Architecture is currently admitting between 12 and 20 students to the BA(LS) program each year, both locally and internationally. Non-local students need to show competency in the English language.

Admission to the BA(LS) undergraduate program is both rigorous and competitive. The Division welcomes applications from students with a broad range of academic and cultural interests. Applicants are welcomed from both Arts and Science streams, and in particular those who have shown an interest in design.

The JUPAS & non-JUPAS code for the BA(LS) program is 6028. All candidates must meet the University Minimum Requirements that are posted on the HKU Undergraduate Admissions Website.

Candidates are not required but are encouraged to submit one example of creative work (artwork, writing, or other forms of creative output); and letter(s) of recommendation (if any) directly to the Faculty Office of Architecture for consideration. Interviews supplement the applications, but are not a determining factor in the admissions process.

For more information, see the HKU Undergraduate Admissions.
