Hong Kong's top universities are ramping up efforts to attract Singapore students.

For the first time in January next year, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) will hold admission interviews here.

This follows a similar move by Hong Kong University (HKU) earlier in March. HKU, which has 176 Singaporean students, is planning a second visit here in January. Such interviews are usually conducted over the phone or through video-conferencing.

HKUST has also held talks in schools such as junior colleges and international schools here to publicise its offerings.
