Admission Requirements

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have a high school diploma or equivalent to be admitted into GIA courses and programs.

An applicant wishing to enroll in an On Campus program taught in English must demonstrate English proficiency by meeting GIA’s English language proficiency requirement.

In addition to your completed application, the GIA campus in Hong Kong requires the following documents. For classes taught in English, all documents must be in English or accompanied by a certified copy of English-language translation. GIA accepts copies, but may request original documentation.

  1. A copy of your valid Hong Kong ID or passport identifying your full name, birth date, citizenship, and country of birth.
  2. Copy of high school, high school equivalency, or college/university diploma or an official transcript showing the graduation date
  3. Documentation of your English language proficiency (On Campus English language courses only; see English Proficiency Requirements)

If your legal name has changed, and your required documents reflect a previous name, please also submit a legal name change document, such as a marriage certificate.

Prior Criminal Offenses

GIA does not require applicants to provide information about prior criminal offenses. Please note that prior convictions may result in challenges in securing employment after graduation.
