  • The safety of students is of utmost priority. For this reason, students should not participate in programs that take place at locations that are deemed to be of high risk (health and/or security). Such programs will also NOT be funded by the University. In determining the risks associated with a program location, students should take reference from the HKSAR Government Outbound Travel Alert (OTA) System, alerts/notices issued by the HKSAR Department of Health, information provided by International SOS, as well as travel advisories issued by countries located in proximity to the destination.
