Equal Opportunities Policy

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology is committed to equal opportunities. Admission to the University is based on merit. No candidate will be discriminated against in any way or shall receive less favorable treatment or consideration on the ground of disability unless it would cause unjustifiable hardship on the University to provide accommodation or under other circumstances permitted by law. This policy applies to candidates with any of the disabilities as defined under the Disability Discrimination Ordinance.

Though not mandatory, the University encourages applicants with disabilities to provide the University with information about their disabilities at the time of application, so that the University can consider the needs of the applicants and make reasonable accommodations to the applicants. The University strives to provide all reasonable support to applicants with disabilities during the process of application and where admitted, throughout their studies at the University. Applicants are also encouraged to contact the HKUST Fok Ying Tung Graduate School to learn more about the services available to students with disabilities.
