Chengdu University Students Participate in PolyU Study Programme through the Belt and Road Funding Scheme

6 Dec 2023

Ten students from the School of Tourism and Culture Industry at Chengdu University embarked on an enriching educational visit to the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) from 6 to 19 August 2023 to deepen their understanding of tourism and marketing. The visit was made possible with the support of the PolyU Belt and Road Funding Scheme, administered by the Global Engagement Office (GEO). During the visit, the students attended lectures, collaborated on research projects and visited local hotels to gain valuable insight into tourism management. Working alongside SHTM students from PolyU, they collectively developed marketing recommendations to promote Hong Kong as an attractive destination for the Chengdu community.


Below is some of the feedback from the participants.


I have many beautiful and profound memories of Hong Kong from these 14 days. The workshop at the SHTM impressed me the most, as I had never participated in such a workshop in Chengdu. In the SHTM’s Vinoteca Lab and Bistro1979, I mixed and tasted alcohol and beverages, set the dining table, learned to distinguish between different knives and forks, and practised serving. I was able to combine theoretical and practical learning.

I’m writing to express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredible experience and opportunities. The academic atmosphere at PolyU was truly exceptional. The professors were not only knowledgeable but also passionate about their subjects, creating an inspiring learning environment. I could feel that they really wanted to teach us something and make us learn something from their lessons. The courses offered me a deeper understanding of hospitality.

The SHTM has always been my dream school, and I am fortunate to have been involved in this project and have close connections with the SHTM and PolyU. We all completed our tasks in an atmosphere of harmonious and pleasant teamwork, ultimately bringing our entire project to fruition. Through this process, I feel that my leadership skills improved”.
