Note 1: HKU CS plans to recruit about 30 Ph.D. or M.Phil. students for admission in 2015. Because the selection process is highly competitive, only applicants with excellent academic records will be invited for interview.  For example, it is expected that an undergraduate applicant from mainland China should be ranked in top 10% in a related field from a top 20 university in China. A master student intending to apply for the Ph.D. program is expected to demonstrate strong research ability or research record, e.g.  in terms of research publications.

Note 2: The research statement is used to assess your research ability. It should contain your research ideas and plans pertaining to some specific problems, and a survey of some research papers. You are encouraged to indicate three areas of interest, and contact a professor in HKU CS in your area of interest for assistance in preparing this document. For example, you can ask the professor’s advice about which papers to read. You should complete the research statement independently without copying sentences from existing papers.
