Additional Information

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are monitoring the political situation in Hong Kong very closely. Current Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice is that travel to Hong Kong remains at an acceptable risk level and therefore we are continuing to offer Hong Kong Study Abroad opportunities at the present time. Applicants should be aware however, that, as with any destination, should the situation escalate and FCO advice change, the University may have to withdraw study abroad opportunities in Hong Kong. Whilst every effort would be made to offer alternative destinations/opportunities to students who had received an offer for a Semester/Year/Summer in Hong Kong, we cannot guarantee this would always be possible.
