13 Oct 2023
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) will hold the Information Day (Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate Programmes) (Info Day) from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on 21 October, offering the latest information for those interested in applying to full-time undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes.
This year, six thematic talks will be hosted by virtual artificial intelligence staff “AIDA IE” and “URIS”, who are specially designed by the University’s Academic Registry. The talks will cover admission information for applications via JUPAS, non-JUPAS (non-local qualifications), senior year admission (Associate Degree or Higher Diploma qualifications) and National College Entrance Examinations (Gaokao), as well as the details of taught postgraduate programmes and the Special Talents Admission and Recognition Scheme (STARS). These talks will be progressively made available on the Info Day website starting from 18 October. Prospective students and parents are all welcome to register and join the talks.
On the Info Day, there will be a broad range of activities, including over 200 thematic talks and programme information seminars organised by faculties, schools and departments; guided tours to various laboratories and facilities; alumni and student sharing; consultation sessions; exhibitions and workshops. To enhance interactivity, registered participants who complete designated tasks online and in-person on the Info Day will be able to redeem a dessert and participate in creative workshops by using cutting-edge technologies to make sandblast glass, robot-assisted bookmarks, and wooden phone stand provided by the University’s teaching and research hotel “Hotel ICON” and Industrial Centre respectively. For more details, please visit the Info Day website.
Starting from the 2024/25 academic year, PolyU will further optimise some of its departmental scheme-based admission programmes. The Faculty of Science will launch the new BSc (Hons) Scheme in Food Safety and Technology and rename the BSc (Hons) Scheme in Biotechnology, Food Safety and Chemical Technology as BSc (Hons) Scheme in Biotechnology and Chemical Technology. Meanwhile, the Faculty of Construction and Environment will introduce the new BSc (Hons) in Urban Informatics and Smart Cities under the BSc (Hons) Scheme in Spatial Data Science and Smart Cities (Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics / Urban Informatics and Smart Cities).
