Dear Research Postgraduate (RPG) Students,
Welcome to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology!!
HKUST is an English-medium university, and proficiency in English, especially in speaking and writing, is essential to you for engaging in your academic studies and for performing your teaching duties effectively.
The Center for Language Education is mandated to provide language support for all undergraduate and postgraduate students at HKUST. With RPGs, we do so by measuring students’ language proficiency levels on entry and providing relevant and timely English courses to enhance your language and academic literacy skills in English.
All new full-time RPGs are, therefore, asked to take an ELPA Speaking Test on entering HKUST, though native speakers of English may apply for exemption.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
