An overseas learning journey often creates invaluable experiences for students. Not only do they learn to appreciate new cultures, broaden global vision and make lifelong friends, but they can also sharpen their communication, problem-solving and other soft skills which help future-proof their career.
CLASS is committed to enrich students’ international exposure and learning experience. To strengthen its internationalisation efforts, it establishes and nurtures partnership with a list of prominent overseas institutions including:
A full list of partner institutions is available here
With this strong network, CLASS is able to arrange around 60% of students to participate in internationalisation programmes of different natures each year. The semester-long outbound exchange, allows students to live and study in an overseas environment and transfer earned credits back to CityU; while the more intensive Overseas Summer Schools sends students to world-renowned universities for academically rigorous summer courses. Also available is the Cultural and Language Immersion (CALI), which focuses on cultivating students’ cultural awareness and language ability. Students joining these programmes will immerse themselves in another culture - it can be challenging but hugely rewarding!
CLASS also receives international students from partner institutions for inbound exchange. Admitted students will be assigned to one of the six departments of CLASS, each with an exchange coordinator who can provide practical advice on their studies in Hong Kong. They will interact with local students in both academic and social settings, and take the chance to experience this vibrant and multicultural city.
Feel free to explore various exchange opportunities on offer. It is perhaps the first step for you – current CLASS student or prospective exchange student - to go global!
