Crisis Management Plan for Students Undertaking Overseas Internship

For students’ safety, a Crisis Management Plan is developed by the Critical Incident Management Team (CIMAT) of the University to provide guidelines and procedures to student participants in the event of an emergency while studying and travelling outside of Hong Kong.

In this regard, all CityU enrolled students who participate in an internship programme outside of Hong Kong (i.e. outbound students) are required to observe the following guidelines issued in the Plan:

Guidelines for students

Outbound students should:

  1. Consider your health and other personal circumstances when applying for or accepting a place in an overseas programme;
  2. Read and get familiar with all materials issued by the programme organiser/sponsor relating to safety, health, legal, environmental, political, cultural, and religious conditions in the host country/city;
  3. Provide programme organiser/sponsor with accurate and complete physical and mental health information or any medical emergency. Such information will be treated with the strictest confidentiality and will be shared by the programme organizer on a “need-to-know” basis only;
  4. Provide 2 emergency contact numbers of your family, guardian or next of kin to programme organiser/sponsor. By providing the emergency contact numbers, you agree and authorise the CityU programme organiser/sponsor to release your personal and academic information to a third party within or external to CityU on a “need-to-know” basis;
  5. Assume responsibility for taking care of your personal preparation for the programme and participate in pre-departure orientation;
  6. Understand and comply with the terms of participation, codes of conduct, rules and regulations of the host institution, as well as laws and customs of the host country/city. While in a foreign country or sovereignty, you are subject to the local laws;
  7. Accept responsibility for your own decisions and actions. Ignorance or negligence is never an excuse for violating the laws;
  8. Stay vigilant at all times as crime exists in all countries and all cities. Avoid becoming a crime victim;
  9. Obtain and maintain appropriate insurance coverage that will cover medical service and medical evacuation;
  10. Know how to use the insurance information. Keep a copy of the insurance policy with you at all times and leave the original policy with your family;
  11. Make 2 copies of your passport/travel document. Leave one with your family and bring one with you on the trip and keep it separately from your passport/travel document. Whilst you are travelling, protect your passport/travel document;
  12. Learn as much as you can about your country/city before you go. Behave in a manner that is reasonable and respectful of the rights and well-being of others, and encourage others to treat you in a similar manner;
  13. Develop with your family a plan for telephone or e-mail contact, so that in case of emergency you will be able to communicate with your parents directly about your safety and well-being;
  14. Take a credit card or make sure you will have access to additional funds in case of an emergency;
  15. Keep the following emergency numbers with you at all times:
    a. Emergency contact numbers of on-site coordinator and/or your
    host institution;
    b. Emergency numbers in the host city/country for police and
    ambulance;
    c. Emergency contact numbers of the programme
    organiser/sponsor in CityU;
    d. 24-hour CityU Campus Security Hotline (collect calls
    acceptable): + 852 2788 8888; + 852 3442 8888
    e. Contact number of the insurance company including the
    24/7 SOS hotline;
    f. 24-hour hotline of Hong Kong Immigration Department:
    +852 1868;
    g. Contact number of the nearest Chinese embassy in your host
    country (if applicable).
  16. Please understand that integration into a new culture and learning environment could place particular challenges, both mental and physical, on an individual, if you are currently receiving treatment for any chronic illness it is strongly recommended that you talk with the programme director/leader, counsellor or your doctor about plans to manage your health condition overseas.
