Preface

This Handbook has been prepared with the purpose of helping students understand their rights and responsibilities as taught postgraduate (TPg) students at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and the policies related to various aspects of their studies. We hope this Handbook serves as a useful guide for TPg students throughout their course of study. TPg students are obliged to find out what they need to do or know about their program of study and the related University regulations.
 
This may also serve as a handy reference for faculty members and administrative staff who may need to advise students on procedural matters concerning their studies at the University.
 
The content of this Handbook may change from time to time to reflect the most updated information. Students should also refer to the Academic Regulations of the University for policies related to their study.
