Who can participate?
The Engineering and Law Accelerated Program is a joint effort between HKUST School of Engineering, and the corresponding units at the University of Exeter, namely:
Students who wish to apply for it should ideally be enrolled in one of the BEng and BSc programs below:
BEng(CIVL) BEng(COMP) BEng(ELEC) BSc(COSC)
BEng(CIEV) BEng(CPEG) BEng(MECH)
However, students from other engineering disciplines are also welcome to apply as long as they can devise a feasible study plan. They should consult their major departments and work out the study plan.
The Engineering and Law Accelerated Program is offered exclusively for students whose first major program is in the HKUST School of Engineering, and is thus not open to students whose first major is in other Schools.
Minimum Academic Criteria
To apply for the law programs under this Engineering and Law Accelerated Program, HKUST students are required to:
- have successfully completed the Contract Law course
- have obtained a cumulative grade point average of 2.85 out of a 4.30 scale by the end of Year 2 at HKUST
- have obtained an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 overall (and no less than 6.0 in any other section) (See more details on English language requirement below.)
Fulfillment of the above minimum criteria does not guarantee admission. The final decision of admission rests with the University of Exeter.
English Language Requirements
Applicants must meet the English language requirements for admission to the University of Exeter. Besides the IELTS results specified in the above section, other recognized English language proficiency tests may be accepted by the University of Exeter. For details, please refer to the University of Exeter's admission website.
Students who have not yet obtained the required English test score can still apply for the program, but a valid test result that meets the admission requirement must be submitted to the University of Exeter no later than the end of November of that year.
