If you are a student from our partner institutions and prefer to study at PolyU for a shorter period, you may apply for our Student Exchange programme. The programme is one of the best ways to broaden your global outlook and allow yourself to experience a different culture overseas within a shorter timeframe. Each year, we receive about 550 international students at PolyU and also send a similar number of PolyU students abroad in this programme.
Your exchange can last from one semester to one academic year depending on your programme and department. Our English learning environment allows you to adapt to campus life easily. Our Putonghua and general education courses will allow you to enrich your knowledge about the Chinese language and culture. Most importantly, credits earned here can be recognised at your home institution!
You will be able to make friends from all over the world and as an exchange student, you will be assigned a buddy who is a PolyU current student to share their student experiences and to give you support during your stay in Hong Kong. You will also be introduced to a PolyU staff member who will act as your 'host family' to enable you experience what family life is like in Hong Kong as part of our Host Family Scheme.
This is truly an opportunity not to be missed and you will be able to broaden your global outlook, gain new knowledge, develop your independence and make new friends all in one go!
