Support for Students with Special Needs


Support Services for Students with Special Needs

Enquiries: Dr. Gloria WONG Tel: 2616 7401 | Email:

Students with special needs should register with the Office of Student Affairs at the beginning of the academic year and as early as possible if students require support and services such as academic adjustments and special hostel arrangements. Such requests should be supported by documentary evidence such as medical reports.

To allow sufficient processing time for making special examination arrangements, students should submit their applications at least six weeks prior to the start of the examination period and late applications may not be entertained.  Subject teachers concerned will discuss with the students before deciding on whether and what academic adjustments and special examination arrangements should be made, taking into consideration the students’ circumstances and the specific nature of the assessment tasks of their courses.
