Future-Ready Series: Wellness Initiative

The Graduate School aims to take the role in providing preventive education to nurture positive mental health, and encourage peer-to-peer support among research postgraduate students. Taking a wider perspective, the “Future-Ready Series” is launched in the 2023/24 academic year to promote all-round development to breed future-ready talents. 

Research Postgraduate Wellness Ambassador Programme

Meet our Wellness Ambassadors!

The Research Postgraduate Wellness Ambassador Programme aims to foster a healthy and resilient RPg community in HKU. To build on the idea of peer-to-peer support in advocating a culture of wellness among students, Wellness Ambassadors play a vital role in promoting wellbeing to fellow students and serve as a contact point for students in the academic unit who may need advice or assistance on wellness issues. They will receive free mental health first aid, mindfulness and para-counselling training, and have the priority to enrol in the wellness activities under the “Future-Ready Series”.

Feel free to get in touch with our Wellness Ambassadors. They will be more than happy to share their personal experience and listen to your stories.

Monthly Wellness Activities

To address students’ needs and concerns towards wellbeing issues, activities covering essential aspects of wellness relevant to the study context of RPg students are offered on a monthly basis throughout the academic year. Academic workshops, sharing sessions, art workshops, student-led activities and many more.  

Applications are considered on a first-come-first-served basis. Please look out for our email announcements and refer to our website for details. Stay tuned and join us!
