The Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies supports the development of postgraduate programmes and fosters an environment conducive to graduate students’ learning. The School provides services and financial assistance to postgraduate students, encourages a close relationship between research and graduate training and represents the foundation of postgraduate education at CityU in the wider academic and general community. Both the taught and research programmes are favourably received by students and have earned high acclaim from the community.
Postgraduate students on programmes funded by the Hong Kong government are eligible for residence in the halls managed by the University. Please refer to the Student Residence Office website. Students studying self-financed programmes will need to find off-campus accommodation. Useful information is listed on the Student Residence Office.
Health Care Service
The Young Chung-Yee Health Centre, located on 4/F of the Bank of China (Hong Kong) Complex, is a medical and dental clinic on campus that provides general medical consultations and dental care services to members of CityU. Fees vary depending on student type.
For off-campus healthcare services, there are 11 private hospitals and more than 40 public hospitals in Hong Kong, which makes it easy to find polyclinics in the community that provide primary care services, including dentistry. Healthcare services in Hong Kong are comprehensive, highly professional and people-centered.
All fees and charges incurred from public and private medical services shall be borne by the students at their own expense. You are thus strongly advised to purchase health and medical insurance that will meet your specific needs.
