What are the differences between research postgraduate programs & taught postgraduate programs?
MPhil and PhD programs are research postgraduate programs (RPG) which involve intense research work and preparation of a thesis under the guidance of a supervisor.
Taught postgraduate programs place more emphasis on coursework and are generally more career-oriented than RPG programs.
Is there any award/ scholarship available for School of Science PG students?
We have a School of Science Postgraduate Research Excellence Award to recognize excellent research performance of science research postgraduate students. The School also offers other scholarship programs such as Huawei Technologies Ltd Scholarship for students to obtain internship training on their professional research areas.
There are other program-specific scholarships offered to taught postgraduate students. For details, please visit the individual program websites.
