In 2019-20 academic year, all the 30 places of the BScDET(Hons) Program are subsidized by the government under the SSSDP. To seek admission to the Program, applicants should apply via JUPAS (JUPAS Code: JSSA02).
The subsidized places of the BScDET (Hons) Program under the Study Subsidy Scheme for Designated Professions/Sectors (SSSDP) are mainly allocated through the Joint University Programs Admissions System (JUPAS). JUPAS students can obtain a subsidized place only via JUPAS but not any other channels. Should there be unfilled intake places after all admission rounds of JUPAS, local non-JUPAS applicants will be admitted via direct admission of no more than 10% of the 30 (in 2020/21) subsidized places in BSc(honour)DET. The maximum places for direct admission for unfilled intake in 2020/21 is 3 (10% of 30).
If you wish to apply for the remaining subsidized places in advance, please submit your application via our Online Application System and choose (for Local Non-JUPAS Applicants ONLY): [SSSDP Unfilled Places] Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Digital Entertainment Technology (Year 1) – 1DETdp1. Please note that only when there are any remaining subsidized places after all admission rounds of JUPAS, non-JUPAS applicants will be considered for direct admission for the program. The final decision is subject to the discretion of the Institute.
Applicants who seek admission to Year 2/ Year 3 entry of this program should apply directly to the Institute for the self-financing places (course code: 1BSDET2, 1BSDET3).
