*Students MUST first start the UWL study abroad application
process. Students can ONLY start CityU application process after
our office has nominated them.
Students going to Hong Kong for a semester will need to apply for a visa before
departure. Students can only start the visa application process after they have
been accepted at CityU.
UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME SENSITIVE
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost. Get more information
about traveling to the UK, including information about visas, @ Travel.State.Gov-HK
or @ CityU Visa webpage.
CityU offers campus housing. However, housing on campus is
very limited. Students will receive information on how to apply
for housing during the application process. It is very important that
students complete their housing application in a timely manner.
Students who are interested in studying abroad, but do not meet eligibility
requirements, are encouraged to make an appointment with a study abroad
advisor. We will assess each situation on a case-by-case basis.
Students will pay ONLY UWL resident tuition while abroad, even if the student is currently paying out-of-state tuition. Students need to be enrolled full-time with a minimum of 12 credits hours. Please refer to the Budget Sheet at the top of this online brochure for more information.
