PolyU has already prepared a basic insurance coverage (Group Personal Accident Insurance) for students joining PolyU activities during their stay in Hong Kong. 

Besides, the University has acquired Group Travel Insurance for students participating in activities outside Hong Kong which are recognized by PolyU.

Please note that PolyU insurance policies do not cover personal hospital expenses, public liability or travel outside Hong Kong. Hence, you may consider purchasing Group Medical Insurance Scheme and/or Public Liability Insurance Scheme for further protection.  Brief highlights are as below:

  • The Group Medical Insurance Scheme covers hospitalization medical expenses due to accidental bodily injuries.  However, Out-patient consultations will NOT be covered by the Group Medical Insurance Scheme. 
  • The Public Liability Insurance Scheme covers legal liability for accidental third party property damage (tangible property) and/or accidental third party bodily injury in connection with the Insured’s business. 

Information of optional Group Medical and/or Public Liability Insurance Scheme(s) for non-local students in 2021/22 academic year (i.e. 30 August 2021 to 31 August 2022) has been sent to non-local students for reference by email in end of August / early September 2021.

If you intend to travel outside Hong Kong during your study at PolyU for personal activities, you are strongly recommended to purchase a travel insurance plan.
