Student Enrolment

Applicants on being informed of acceptance must pay the required fees and register in person with the Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies within the prescribed period. Those who fail to do so will be deemed to have declined the offer. Prior to student enrolment, students on acceptance of offer admission are required to note the following:

Commencement Date of Candidature

The commencement date of candidature is normally the first day of September or January to fit with the beginning of a semester. The Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies may approve other starting dates, which will be the first day of a month, if so recommended by the supervisor.

Non-local students should seek the advice of their supervisors regarding the commencement date of studies immediately after the approval of their visa/entry permit application, and inform the Chow Yei Ching School of Graduate Studies of the recommended commencement date as soon as possible.


All new research students are required to perform an online pre-enrolment process before coming to the University for the New Student Enrolment. This is an online process through which a new student is able to confirm his/her personal contact information to the University and to activate his/her electronic ID (EID).

An EID has been assigned to each new student during the application process. If students do not get it at the admission application stage, they can activate it by performing the pre-enrolment process upon receipt of the enrolment notification letter. Click here to learn more about EID. The EID enables students to login the CityU Student e-Portal and access a wealth of information relating to the studies. So do it now!
