International SOS (ISOS)

HKUST partners with International SOS, the leading travel health and safety assistance provider. When you study abroad, ISOS provides HKUST students with a 24/7 resource on call, online and even on the ground to help with medical, security and logistical questions, concerns and situations that may arise. So if you need pre-travel advice, a medical referral, lose your medication, or experience a medical or security crisis, please call ISOS for assistance.

Before you depart

Before you depart, HKUST advise that you enter the ISOS portal to review the travel information for the country or region you will be visiting.   Important information about the place, such as travel and medical alerts, recommended immunizations and security/safety notes are available and updated.
