HKUST Applications

Your HEAS forms are due this week.  Remember once you submit your online application to HKUST, your reference writer will be invited to submit their input within a 2-week window or the invitation will lapse.  In view of the Christmas holidays and your teachers' well deserved right to enjoy the break, you should either submit your online application to HKUST by the end of this week, or hold it until a couple of days before the January 3 HKUST deadline. 

PolyU Applications

The PolyU online applications will open from Dec 15, 2015.  Those of you who are applying should access their system at that time.
