The Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology accepts students yearly for our MPhil or PhD programs. The most common application date is before the end of one year, and if selected, the students will enrol in early August next year.

There are three types of studentships, 1) Hong Kong PhD fellowship scheme (HKPFS) by Hong Kong government, which is extremely competitive and only select the best candidates; 2) studentship by the university; 3) studentship by individual professor’s research grants. Note that most of the current students are supported by university studentship. Occasionally, we also accept self-financed students.

While to apply for HKPFS, students have to have a professor supervisor to endorse the application, to apply for studentship allocated by the university, it is not essential for an applicant to seek the endorsement from a professor supervisor.

Students join our department’s active research and work as part of a team under the guidance of their supervisor.

As well as research training provided within the department, students will have access to other teaching in the Chinese University of Hong Kong to fully develop their research skills.
