University of London and HKU SPACE

  • The cooperation between the University of London and HKU SPACE (formerly the Department of Extra Mural Studies – DEMS) is a longstanding one. From its outset, over 60 years ago, DEMS offered preparatory Law courses for the LLB degree. In the 1980s, responding to community demand, HKU SPACE expanded its teaching provision to include also the Accounting, Banking, Business, Economics, Finance and Management programmes (Academic Direction: London School of Economics and Political Science). This was followed by the BSc in Computing and Information Systems (Academic Direction: Goldsmiths). HKU SPACE has also collaborated with the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and Royal Holloway (RHUL) and supports the LLM, MSc in Professional Accountancy and Global MBA degrees.  

  • In addition to providing preparatory courses, HKU SPACE also has a longstanding administrative arrangement with the University of London. This means that HKU SPACE acts as an Admissions Centre for the University of London and receives and processes applications. Those who fulfill University admission criteria may receive their Letters of Eligibility directly from HKU SPACE on London's behalf.

  • As part of its 150th Anniversary celebrations in 2008, the University of London made special awards to six institutions worldwide in recognition of their contributions and efforts as partners. HKU SPACE was proud to be chosen as one of the six and the only one in Hong Kong.

  • With effect from September 2009, HKU SPACE became an Affiliate Centre of the University of London in Hong Kong. This is the highest level of recognition and means that in the considered view of the University of London, HKU SPACE demonstrates a sustained commitment to developing excellence in respect of teaching, support to students and administrative processes.

One-Stop Service for Application and Registration via HKU SPACE

  • For the past 25 years, HKU SPACE has provided a one-stop service for application and registration for admission to many undergraduate degree programmes of the University of London. These services are offered for the convenience of all Hong Kong applicants whether or not they are HKU SPACE students.

  • For applicants to the LLM, the MSc in Professional Accountancy and other postgraduate courses, we provide a service of verification of documentary evidence and submission of application forms with a charge of $350.

  • For those not applying via our office, we now also offer a verification of documentary evidence service for all University of London applications with a charge of $350.

Postgraduate Programmes

For key dates of the MSc in Professional Accountancy and other postgraduate programmes, please refer to details in the relevant prospectus.

 

Early application is recommended because:

  • late applications and registrations will not be accepted;

  • applications that do not meet the general entrance and/or course requirements of a programme will have to be referred to the University of London Admissions Panel for a final decision. This requires considerable processing time, so application before June 2018 is advised; and

  • a relevant HKU SPACE preparatory course may be full or start well before the University of London programmes application deadline, so application before June 2018 is also advised.
