Hello there!

I saw one of those threads last year and figured it'd be nice to have a place to talk about the application process, especially once it gets to the interview stage.

Did any of you apply to universities in Hong Kong? If so which ones and what did you apply for?

Cheers and good luck!

Seems like HKU really is taking their time this year as I haven't heard of anyone receiving any news whatsoever from them.

I had my interview for Biotech at PolyU and asked them about how classes are conducted atm since they really are at the center of it all and I was told exams/classes will continue regularly during mid-January, so I'd assume that while HK might not be the safest place, the unis are trying their best to offer a safe environment to study.

For UST I think they aren't as affected because they are pretty secluded (they sent an email before the holidays saying that the campus was safe, so I'm going off of that).

Anyway, good luck on both your UK and HK applications

hku is pretty affected i think because their classes are suspended until jan if im not mistaken (my friend goes to hku). maybe that's why hku is taking their time? its too bad really, bcs hku is my first choice for hk

but thanks ! good luck on your applications too, i hope we can get our offers in jan hahahah

That'd make sense. I didn't know their classes were suspended too:/ I actually was surprised PolyU was so quick at arranging interviews considering the situation. And thank you!

I'm not an engineering applicant so I can't help you out, but I'd assume that if you haven't heard back yet you are most likely moved to the main round. Maybe check your online application anyway because my email was in a different folder so I didn't see it at first. Otherwise you still have a chance

Haven't gotten any feedback from both CUHK and HKU. Have you had an interview with either one already?
