Outbound

Student exchange provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable learning experience in new settings, broaden their cultural horizons and gain global perspectives. Credits earned at the partner institutions can be transferred to the academic programmes that students are studying at CityU.

Student exchange is an unforgettable experience. We have received very positive feedback from our outgoing exchange students. You can read their sharing:
