Warm start for new arrivals
Every year, HKUST’s Office of Postgraduate Studies holds welcome receptions for new postgraduate students to celebrate the start of their postgraduate journeys, sharing first-hand advice and interesting tips about the University. This year, the welcome receptions for new research and taught postgraduate students in 2017/18 were held on 29 August and 26 August respectively.
The 2017/18 receptions began with an introductory and welcome talk by senior management. Various representatives of the University then briefly introduced services provided, ranging from language education, library, to counseling and career, among others. The get-togethers were concluded with tea receptions and breakout sessions for more in-depth discussions with fellow students and service-providing units.
