i am waiting for a reply...please reply asap..

and are there some other websites where i can discuss ug related questions with other students?

some answers on HKUST

about your scores, no one knows but the department you're applyin for. ask them.


vegetrian food is going to be a bit of a problem, especially if you're strict. there are a few dishes available in each of the university options, but it's quite limited. most veggie indians i know on campus cook for themselves.


average expenses? i would say food is about 100HK$ a day, on campus accommodation between 1000-2800HK$ a month, transportation and other expenses depends on your lifestyle, but i would estimate another 1000HK$ atleast.


hope that helps,

and yeah...HKUST people are all silent about scores

one more ques...what is the avg monthy salary of a student graduating from HKUST school of engineering?

and does graduating from a different country(say HKUST) really makes any difference when you apply for jobs? 

Some links

You can find international UG students, some of them Indian, with the HKUST - International Students Association (ISA) Facebook group -

I also recommend you contact the following offices in HKSUT, and they'll be happy to get you in touch with current international UGs :

as or salaries, again - do your online search and talk to the HKUST offices instead of posting in unofficial forums. from my quick Google search you can have a look at these :

lastly, i don't know who you talked to but HKUST is not silent about the scores at all. if you talk to the offices, they'll be happy to tell you what scores are required.

good luck
