1. Do I need to submit all of the materials by the application deadline?

Yes, you have to submit the online application form including application fees, and copies of supporting documents by the application deadline. Only scanned copies of the supporting documents are required at the application stage. It is strongly recommended that applicants make use of the document uploading function on the online application platform to submit soft copies of documents.

The GMAT or GRE are highly recommended for application and you are required to take TOEFL or IELTS unless your first language is English or your qualification is awarded by a university or an institute where the language of instruction is English. You are advised to have the test scores ready when you submit the application. Otherwise, please schedule your tests as early as possible and put your scheduled test date on the application. In any case, you should submit your scores within one month after the application deadline.

If you are being admitted, you are required to show the original documents and/or submit the certified true copies, with official imprint and signature, by the issuing authorities.

2. Is a minimum GMAT score required for admission?

GMAT/GRE is NOT a compulsory requirement for application and hence we do not have a minimum score requirement. Applicants’ English ability will also be assessed during a face-to-face interview.

3. Can the GMAT/GRE requirement be waived?

GMAT/GRE is NOT a compulsory requirement for application but we highly recommend applicants to take GMAT/GRE. As applicants come from different academic backgrounds, different education institutions, and different countries of origin, the GMAT/GRE score allows us to assess their academic ability to participate in an international program. Extensive research also supports the GMAT/GRE as a consistent measure of how well an applicant will handle postgraduate studies, particularly required courses.

If an applicant does not have GMAT or GRE scores, his/her English level will still be assessed during the interview.

4. I have not taken the GMAT/GRE yet. Should I submit my application?

Again, as GMAT/GRE is NOT compulsory requirement for application. If you decide to take the GMAT/GRE examinations, you could first submit your application and indicate in the application form your scheduled test date. Once an unofficial GMAT/GRE score report is available right after the test, you may upload the report in the application system for our reference.

5. How long is my GMAT/GRE result valid for?

Your GMAT/GRE result is valid for 5 years prior to the commencement of study.

6. Do I need to submit a TOEFL/IELTS score with my application?

A TOEFL/IELTS score is required if your first language is not English or your degree or equivalent qualification was awarded by an institution where the medium of instruction is not English.

7. Is a minimum TOEFL/IELTS score required for admission?

For TOEFL, a score of 550 (paper test) or 80 (Internet test) is required. For IELTS, a minimum score of 6.5 is required.

8. How long is my TOEFL/IELTS result valid for?

9. How can I apply for the Admission Scholarship?

You do not have to apply for the Admission Scholarship. Every applicant is considered by the Admission Committee for the admission offer and scholarship simultaneously. Applicants, who receive and accept the admission offer, will be considered for the Admission Scholarship. 

10. Who can be my referees?

As two reference letters are required, you should nominate two referees who know you well and can inform the University about your academic ability, character and capacity for postgraduate studies. The instructors from the courses of your undergraduate/postgraduate studies and/or the current or past employers/supervisors are also eligible to be your referees.
