Hong Kong

Pre-departure briefing 2016

To help with your preparations for coming to Cardiff, Ruth Foster from the International Office we will be holding a pre-departure briefing session in Hong Kong on Sunday 21 August.

The aim of the briefing is to:

  • ensure that you have all the information you need about life and study at Cardiff
  • advise you on what you need to do to prepare for your trip
  • enable you to meet other students who will be coming to Cardiff this year
  • allow you to ask any questions you might have to a Cardiff University representative
  • introduce you to members of the Hong Kong Student Society of Cardiff University - TBC
Hong Kong Student Society

The Hong Kong Student Society mission is to support and represent Hong Kong students at Cardiff, as well as to coordinate events which bring students together to socialise.

They arrange and organise a wide range of social and sports events, create a friendly community for their members and help them familiarise themselves with the life in Cardiff. Particularly for freshers, the activities aim to help their members get settled with their new university life in Cardiff and make new friends.

As part of the pre-departure briefing, the Society hope to run a separate breakout session for offer-holders only, giving you a fantastic opportunity to engage with other students and build up a network of friends before coming to Cardiff in September.
