Elder Academy at City University of Hong Kong
Elder Academy @ City University of Hong Kong
In support to the government’s initiative to encourage elders to lead an active and flourishing life, City University of Hong Kong joined the Elder Academy Scheme launched by the Labour and Welfare Bureau and the Elderly Commission in 2008.
In 2022/23, the Elder Academy at City University of Hong Kong celebrated its 14th Anniversary. In this Elder Academy, City University of Hong Kong will make available places in selected undergraduate courses for elders to attend as auditing students. They are not required to submit assignments and attend examinations. Attending courses in our Elder Academy will not lead to any credits/ awards. Students will be provided with a student card to access for accessing learning facilities of the University. Moreover, there will be a Buddy Scheme in which a CityU student will be assigned as a buddy to assist elders to adapt to campus life.
The 29th cohort (Semester A, 2022/23) will commence on29 August 2022 and will last for 13 weeks. In this Semester, 47 courses will be offered by 20 academic units of the University.
