* Depend on individual lifestyle
All student-teachers are required to sign a credit card payment authorisation form for HK$500 (US$64) to cover any additional expenses incurred, such as library fines or hostel damage repairs. Charges will only be made if bills remain unpaid after the student has left EdUHK. Students will be notified of the amount by email before the transaction, and the authorisation form will be destroyed after the transaction is cleared. EdUHK may withhold a student’s transcript until any outstanding payments are settled.
