Early Bird Registration for HKUST Experience Day 2021
 
Further to our promotion of the HKUST Virtual Information Day, we would like to bring you further exciting news concerning your graduating class students as follow.
 
Early bird invitation to the HKUST Experience Day 2021
 
In view of the improving pandemic situation locally, we are hosting an on-campus event “HKUST Experience Day 2021”, exclusively for the graduating year students, on Sunday, 10 Oct. The event is a hub of interesting face-to-face experiential programs, participants will get a real taste of HKUST through taster lectures, tailored workshops, laboratory visits and demonstration, and dormitory and campus tours, alongside with admissions consultation booths for in-person engagement with our admissions officers and students. These experiential programs perfectly complement the admissions talks offered through our Virtual Information Day on Saturday, 25 Sep. We highly recommend your students to attend both events which offer completely different experience.
 
To manage health and safety measures, the event will be split into two identical sessions with limited capacity for experiential programs. Having received many of your bright students over the years, we are pleased to offer Early Bird Registration for your graduating year students to sign up for Session 2 (14:00 – 18:00) before the event goes public. Grateful if you may kindly inform them and nominate interested students by returning the sign-up form by 12:00 noon of Monday, 13 Sep. Full event details and RSVP link will be sent to the nominated students in due course.
 
Counselors are most welcome to join the HKUST Experience Day 2021
 
At the event, we will host a tailored Counselor Mingling and Consultation Session (15:00 – 16:00) for counselors like you. Admissions officers from Schools and Programs would share important admissions updates and answer any questions you may have. Please fill in details of attending counselor(s) on the same sign-up form for RSVP.
 
What’s new for HKUST (2022 Intake)
 
To start with, our online application system will open on 27 Sep, with early round deadline on 19 Nov 2021 and main round deadline on 14 Jan 2022. This year, we are offering a new application choice BSc in Sustainable and Green Finance, leveraging the heightening sustainability concerns and demands for talents in the finance sector.
 
The Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence will be made available for our business students when they start declaring their majors while an entirely new Extended Major in Digital Media and Creative Arts will also be launched.
 
Last but not least, we are proud to announce the establishment of HKUST Beyond Academic Admissions Scholarship (BAAS), a new scholarship to absorb our previous two non-academic scholarships and further expand the scope to recognize a much broader spectrum of talents and achievements. Awardees would enjoy a one-off scholarship of HKD 50,000 and favorable admissions offer(s).
 
We hope you and your students are excited about these updates as much as we do.
 
Thank you and looking forward to welcoming you and your students at HKUST Experience Day 2021 in person (Finally!). We will be in touch soon to follow up on any questions.
