About GSAP


The Global Student Ambassador Programme (GSAP) aims at encouraging all PolyU full-time undergraduate students in UGC-funded programmes to actively seek opportunities to enrich their global awareness and experience. The Programme supports the University’s goals of achieving excellence, diversity and global citizenship by grooming GSAP ambassadors to diversify their global learning experience and conduct various local / non-local ambassadorial activities. Through training, guidance, funding support and events, the programme enhances participants’ intercultural understanding, strengthens their youth leadership skills, and grooms them to become culturally sensitive, open-minded and responsible global citizens who will act as catalysts in promoting internationalisation and integration.
