Student exchange provides an opportunity for students to enrich their university life by studying and living outside Hong Kong at a partner institution for a period of time. It broadens students' international horizon and enriches their university education with cross-cultural exchange experience. During that period, students are registered as full-time students in overseas institutions. Credits earned can be transferred to the academic programmes students are studying.
Student exchange can be a valuable experience and play a vital role in the whole person development. We have received excellent feedback from students who have been on student exchange. You can read their sharing here.
