The International Students Association (ISA) is part of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Founded in 2008, ISA is the third largest organization on campus, apart from the Student Union (SU) and Mainland Students and Scholars Society (MSSS), with over 500 members and hosting over 20 events per year. ISA's primary goal is to represent the interests of overseas students while promoting cultural exchange within the campus.

International Community

ISA believes in unity; we strive to create a community whereby there's no separation between students from different cultural backgrounds, and we aim to create greater synergy by bringing people from different backgrounds together. ISA organizes activities that would forge an international campus atmosphere, in which all cultures and ethnicities will thrive.

Unrestricted Membership

ISA does not restrict its membership only to international students; both Local and Mainland Chinese students are more than welcome to join us. No matter who you are, as long as you also believe in what ISA believes in, ISA welcomes you. Together, we can help develop HKUST towards a more accepting, understanding, and enlightened community.

Vision & Mission

ISA’s main purpose is to provide services and events aimed at enhancing communication and integration among different student bodies of different cultural backgrounds. ISA is an advocate for all international HKUST students and members of ISA, acting as an intermediary between the Represented Members and HKUST officials.
