Local Students (other qualifications)
There are local Hong Kong students holding subdegree and/or international qualifications such as IB. Though they are usually regarded as local students, for some specific induction and orientation activities, they are specified as local students with international qualifications, direct-entry or senior-entry, etc.
Welcome to HKUST. Hope you have a smooth transition and feel at home at HKUST.
