Incoming Students


Students should arrange, at their own cost, accident and sickness insurance for the duration of their studies in Hong Kong. The coverage should include provisions for emergency evacuation/rescuer's expenses and repatriation. If students plan to travel outside Hong Kong, they should make sure that their insurance policy covers those destinations as well. Some students may be included in their parents' health insurance policies. They should check with their parents about the coverage before coming to Hong Kong.

Registered students are entitled to HKU Group Travel Insurance (HKU Portal login required to read the details) for travelling overseas on activities which are officially arranged by the University. Questions regarding the HKU Group Travel Insurance should be sent to
