MANDATORY: Getting Started & Introduction to HLTH1010


The "Getting Started@HKUST" and the HLTH1010 Course Introduction is a 3-hour required activity of the HLTH1010 Course.

HKUST is full of opportunities and possibilities - the secret of getting ahead is getting started! In the session, students will learn about the Healthy Lifestyle Course (HLTH1010) requirements and the wide range of resources to support students in leading a healthy and happy life on campus. You will also learn about the part you can play so that all of us will live and learn harmoniously in a diverse and dynamic environment. In addition, you will find out what you need to know to tailor a path for your first year success through hearing stories from senior students about how they made the most of their university experience.
