The College has established student exchange agreements with respective academic units of various partner institutions overseas. If you are interested in participating in this programme, please follow these steps:

  3. Complete the online application form.
    Apart from the college-level student exchange programme, CityU also offers exchange opportunities at institutional and departmental levels. For institutional-level exchange programme, applicants will need to send their online applications directly to the Global Engagement Office, whereas departmental-level applications should be sent to the respective academic department at CityU.
