24 Sept 2010

Dear Potential EAS Applicants,


        When you read this letter on the CUHK physics department website, you are probably considering physics as a possible major in your EAS application this year. If so, CUHK is the place for you.  In this website, you will find out the strength of our Department and the quality of education that we provide to our undergraduates. Our rigorous curriculum, coupled with various student-centered learning opportunities  that we have developed in recent years and the flexible credit system of CUHK, provides a rigorous and thorough training to our undergraduates at a level comparable to any major research universities in the world. For those of you who plan to do research work in the future, our graduates have been admitted to PhD programs in top graduate schools around the world. I am sure you will be impressed by what we can offer. General information of our curriculum can be found in our department website.


        You are most welcome to contact us directly for further information about our curriculum, the learning opportunities that CUHK Physics Department provides, university life at CUHK, etc. Please feel free to send your enquiries to our EAS hotline at eas@phy.cuhk.edu.hk, or contact any one of the following teaching staff of the Physics Department:



- Professor Hark Sui Kong 郝少康  skhark@phy.cuhk.edu.hk  , phone: 3943-6321

- Professor Chu Ming Chung 朱明中mcchu@phy.cuhk.edu.hk , phone: 3943-6364

You may also contact us through the physics department general office at 2609-6154.


For your information, we expect to admit about 66 Year 1 students in 2011, and up to 1/3 of the quota can be allocated to EAS applicants. CUHK physics has attracted by far the largest number of EAS students. We have admitted many EAS students in the past years. The past record is shown in the table below. Together with the quality students we have admitted through JUPAS in recent years, we have the best physics students in Hong Kong. We look forward to your joining us.
