VISA INFORMATION
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.

for housing during the application process. It is very important that
students complete their housing application in a timely manner. 

City U also offers cross-cultural opportunities to help exchange students
