HKUST suspended all exchange programs for Spring 2021.
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) was established in 1991 as a research university, and quickly gained a global reputation. The faculty consists of 130 scholars from 35 countries with different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The university strives to set the pace in the scientific, technological and business fields that drive development in today's knowledge economy. Its four schools, Science, Engineering, Business and Management, and Humanities and Social Science provide a comprehensive range of program options to equip students with the well-rounded skills needed to be leaders in the workplace and play an active role in society. HKUST's location in Hong Kong means it has strong links through exchanges and collaborations with leading universities and institutions around the country.
With a population of seven million, Hong Kong is the world's eleventh largest trading economy and has the second busiest container port globally. It is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city where Chinese traditions coexist with the latest world trends. Chinese art and culture are available alongside western performing and visual arts, including Chinese and Western films, international pop tours, and clubs. Colorful Chinese festivals provide insight into some of the traditions of China's 500-year-old culture. Returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997, the flow of people, goods and vehicles between Hong Kong and Mainland China have been expanding rapidly.
Minibuses link the campus to nearby Mass Transit Railway subway stations which take you to most parts of the city. Buses and taxis are also available. On campus, there are numerous food options, offering northern and southern Chinese, other Asian, as well as international food, as well as a coffee shop and a snack shop. There are also banks, postal services, a supermarket, hair salon, bookshop, co-op shop, souvenir shop and self-service photocopiers. A health center is available with medical and dental clinics. There are a variety of recreational facilities, including but not limited to swimming pools, fitness facilities, climbing wall, tennis courts, and music rooms. HKUST's advanced IT network and internet access covers all parts of the university, with bilingual Chinese and English capability.
