We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Hong Kong can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Hong Kong to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Hong Kong offices or our own international advice team.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. Students should hold a Hong Kong Advanced Level Certificate.

For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.

Visa information

As a Hong Kong national, you will need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK. When you have met all the conditions of entry for a full-time course at Southampton Solent University (including payment of deposit and course acceptance), you will be sent a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number. You will need this document to apply for a student visa.

You should make your application for a visa at the local visa application centre.

Speak with an official representative

Solent has a number of official representatives around the world. They give you the chance to talk about opportunities here at Southampton Solent with someone in your own country.
