Outbound Student Exchange

About SEP

Student Exchange Programme (SEP) is an opportunity for CityUHK students to study outside of Hong Kong at our partner institutions in over 45 countries/regions worldwide.

As an outbound exchange student of CityUHK, you will gain a new learning experience through studying and living abroad for one semester at our partner institution. You will maintain full-time student status at the host institution and earn academic credits that can be transferred back to CityUHK (subject to approval) without paying tuition fees to the host institution.

If you are looking for a life-changing experience, SEP is definitely the right opportunity for you!

Why Exchange?

Appreciate new cultures & values
Gain lifelong friendship
Polish language ability & communication skills
Enhance self-management & decision-making skills
Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime adventure
