ORIS students who conduct their Final Year Projects at overseas institutions/companies will be registered on FS4004 (9 credits) by Co-op Centre.
The FYP project under FS4004 follows the assessment schedule and criteria of the parent department to which a student belongs. It is also supervised by the academic staff of the same department. Students are encouraged to complete all of the graduation requirement except FYP before commencement of the scheme.
Student should check if he/she conforms to the rules and guidelines of the University, without exceeding the maximum number of credit units for majors.
Failure to complete the ORIS will result in failure of the project and possibly delay in graduation.
Students are responsible for obtaining the necessary visas and checking that their passports hold a 6-month expiry period at least when they go abroad. Cost of visa applications and passport renewals are at students’ expenses. Mainland students are expected to take this into consideration and ensure that the proper travelling documents can be obtained.
Students should purchase air-tickets on their own and be responsible for their travel arrangements.
The Centre will seek assistance from training companies / institutions to arrange for appropriate accommodation.
Students are covered under 2 insurance schemes provided by City University. For details and coverage, please visit the website of CityU Finance Office at http://www6.cityu.edu.hk/fo/. Students are advised to arrange additional worldwide insurance coverage for themselves at their own expenses.
