UST Information Day Welcomed Thousands of Students

More than 17,000 prospective applicants, their families and teachers came to check out the curriculum and find out more about life at the UST at the University’s annual Information Day on September 18, 2010.

The annual Info-Day gave visitors a real idea of what the UST has to offer  – top notch academic programs, fantastic teaching, colourful social life, plenty of exchange, research and internship opportunities and, just what UST President Tony F Chan describes – one of world’s most beautiful campuses.

Over 60 seminars on HKUST's academic programs were conducted throughout the day. Exhibition booths prepared by Schools, Departments and students covered everything from applications process, academic programs and scholarships to facilities and support services. Staff and current students shared their enthusiasm about the University and show future students how they could get a world-class education at the UST. Guided tours led by current students were arranged for potential applicants to laboratories and halls of residence.

Speaking at the "JUPAS Admission Talk", President Tony F Chan advised senior secondary students to develop a long term plan before deciding on a major. He encouraged students to choose areas of study that suit their interests and aspirations.
