All new students are invited to attend the orientation talks/workshops organized by the University. You will expect to get an idea about those academic skills you need for studying in a university, programs that support an active student life and promote personal development, as well as resources you can tap on to assist your study in HKUST. The duration of each talk/workshop ranges between 1-3 hours, except CAMPUS WRAP which is a 4-day-3-night residential camp.
All talks/workshops are held during 14 Aug - 3 Sep 2013, except the First Year Success Seminars.
Click the links below to get details of the talks/workshops, and to access the online registration system. Prior registration is required, which is accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Early booking is recommended as these courses are usually very popular. You are welcome to join as many as your schedule permits. Note that all new students are required to attend the Getting Started@HKUST & HLTH1010 Course Introduction (CIGT).
If you cannot attend after having reserved a place, we expect you to release your place to other students through the Manage My Orientation page. Please do so at least one day before the scheduled event such that other students may pick up your place.
