logo Student-initiated Projects to Enhance Internationalisation of CityU

Objectives

The University Grants Committee (UGC), which oversees CityU and other government-funded Hong Kong universities, joins hands with the universities to promote internationalisation of the campuses. CityU students were invited to submit proposals to CityU's Internationalisation Scheme to help internationalise the CityU campus during the 2013/14 - 2014/15 academic years.

Funded Projects

8 student-initiated projects have been awarded University Grants Committee (UGC) and CityU funds to enhance and promote internationalisation at CityU in 2013/14 - 2014/15. They would provide opportunities for local and non-local students to work together toward a common purpose of providing a more welcoming environment for all students.

A total of 23 proposals were received and reviewed by the Internationalisation Scheme Selection Panel, comprising the Dean of Students Dr Raymond CHAN as Chairman; Professor Jane LU (CA); Dr Gang HAO (MS/ARO); Dr Thomas Richard JOHNSON (POL); and Ms Helen LAM (GSO). The selection criteria included 'fit to the Scheme's objectives, level of innovation, feasibility of the project and expected impact of the project'.
