HKU Taster Programme runs 3 times a year: Christmas, Easter and Summer. Thru these 3 HKU Taster programmes, students will be able to have a taste and a glimpse of what different Faculties of HKU have to offer through interactive workshops and intellectually challenging lectures.

In each HKU Taster programme, students will have a chance to experience some of the learning in each of the facutlies listed on the leaflets, usually up to 4 per programme.

We aim to enable students to making informed decisions on their programme choices through hands-on experience in their faculties of interest. It is our objective that it will help students to streamline their choices step by step, singling out few focused faculties further developing in their fields of interest

The programmes will consist of a rotation of all workshops/lectures from the featured faculties listed on the leaflet.

We encourage our students to participate as many HKU taster programmes as they like since each HKU Taster is hosted by different faculties.

The HKU Academy for the Talented is a membership-based programme that brings together top secondary school students from around the world. The tailored workshops and exclusive programmes offered by HKU faculties allow members to get a taste of university learning.

Students who are currently in Form 2/Grade 8 or above can submit a Talent Search application now. To know more, please visit

It is our strong belief that no student should be denied admission to HKU Taster due to financial difficulties. Students who are able to provide supporting documents issued by WFSFAA Student Finance office for receiving financial assistance or Social Welfare Department for receiving CSSA, will recieve a full grant .
