(3) Students admitted into this programme starting from the 2023/24 cohort are required to visit the Greater Bay Area (GBA) for a short trip (e.g. 1-day or 2-day 1-night trip) in order to complete the Cross-Faculty Core Course. While the GBA trip is heavily subsidised, students are still required to contribute 18% of the best estimated cost of the trip ("student contribution"), whereas personal entertainment, meals expenses, visa application fee and personal insurance costs will not be supported. The estimated cost of the GBA trip for students admitted to the 2023/24 cohort is not available yet as it is subject to a variety of factors such as changes to the cost of the GBA trip as a result of inflation, trip duration, traveling expenses, the exchange rate, etc. The exact amount of student contribution is thus not available.

The information listed above is provisional and subject to changes.
