The K.C. Wong Education Foundation has over the years been sponsoring academic exchange activities between the Chinese mainland and other countries/territories. PolyU is invited to nominate one academic staff to pay a half-month visit to mainland institutions each year under the sponsorship of the Foundation. During the visit, the visiting scholar will conduct one to two open lectures and seminars at the host institution.
Reciprocally, PolyU also receives academic visitors from the Chinese mainland to pay visits to relevant departments and deliver lectures and talks during their visits.
The discipline of the visiting scholar ranges from humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, engineering and medicine to aesthetics.
