IMPORTANT NOTICE - NEW ONLINE APPLICATION PLATFORM
Starting from April 1, we will adopt the online application platform at HKUST, where the admission registry of the MSGF program sits. New applicants can complete and submit their application through the HKUST system. Please refer to here for instructions to open an account.
For existing applicants, you can continue to prepare your application under the previous system (please refer to the access link the Program Office sent to you by email). Please complete and submit your application by May 11, 2016, after which the Embark platform will be phased out, and applicants need to start application anew under the HKUST system.
For enquiry, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
