The Faculty of Science of The University of Hong Kong (HKU) is introducing a new double degree programmme, the JS6688 Science Master Class in academic year 2021 – 2022, allowing talented students to complete 2 degrees in 4 years – a Bachelor of Science (BSc) and a Master of Research (MRes) from HKU.  This elite programme caters specifically to the needs of science-inclined students, with Science Masters (renowned scientists in the Faculty) helping students achieve their scholastic potential in science.

One of the best ways to learn is to be inspired from those who excel.  This programme allows research-aspired students to immerse themselves in an authentic research environment and learn from researchers from diverse backgrounds, incubating the next generation of dynamic scientists who are able to translate scientific knowledge into practical applications with far- and wide-reaching impacts.  The Faculty has renowned scientists including Members of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hong Kong Academy of Sciences, Hong Kong Young Academy of Sciences, International Members of National Academy of Sciences USA, Foreign Member of Academia Europaea, awardees of State Natural Science Awards and a number of highly cited scientists.
