Prof. Young highlighted PolyU’s commitment to nurturing a global and outward-looking mindset among students. To support their non-local learning experiences, the University offers financial support of up to $10,000 to each undergraduate student who takes part in non-local learning activities.
Prof. Chan said the recent trip to the GBA and Singapore had had a profound impact on PolyU’s future leaders, providing them with an opportunity to broaden their global horizons and gain inspiration for their personal and professional growth. Interactions with alumni, industry leaders and institutional partners from both the Mainland and overseas allowed participants gain valuable insights and experiences.
