At the Global Engagement Office (GEO) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), we understand that internationalisation is the pathway to a more sustainable and inclusive society. GEO is proud to support PolyU’s mission to become a world-class university in teaching, research, and knowledge transfer, forging closer partnerships and networks across continents and nurturing the next generation of passionate citizens of the world.


Our vision of shaping the future through global engagement may extend across continents, but it starts right here at PolyU. Firmly believing that internationalisation begins at home, GEO strives to build a dynamic, culturally diverse learning community on campus by recruiting talented students from Hong Kong and across the globe. Supported by PolyU, our students can explore the ever-changing world through student exchange and study-abroad programmes, overseas research opportunities and conferences, and much more.

As you browse this website, you will learn much more about the wealth of opportunities we provide to broaden students’ horizons and enrich their academic and whole-person development through international exposure.

We can only build a truly global future by standing side by side. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to our collaboration in one way or another!
