Guangzhou Pilot Scheme Admission, 2020/21

(The admission information of Guangzhou Pilot Scheme 2021/22 will be ready by late October. You are invited to visit the page at to learn more about the Scheme.)

In concert with the preparatory work for establishment of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou) (HKUST(GZ)) in Nansha, the University has rolled out a Guangzhou Pilot Scheme on the Clear Water Bay (CWB) campus to start enrolling research postgraduate (RPg) students. These students will conduct transdisciplinary research in Thrust Areas identified under the Hubs to be established in HKUST(GZ).

HKUST(GZ) is positioned to offer the same quality and standard of teaching and learning environment as HKUST, and adopts English as the basic language. In line with the requirements of HKUST, we are recruiting high-performing students from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds, and with different interests, perspectives, abilities, and entrepreneurial spirit.
