Students who took part in the Student Exchange Programme 1999/2000 have returned to campus. They received certificates from the Vice-President (Institutional Advancement) and Vice-President (Education) at a sharing session on 6 December, and talked to fellow students about their exchange experience.


Mr Sam Pang, a third-year student from the Department of Public and Social Administration, who studied at Murdoch University in Australia for seven months this year, said he made a lot of new friends of different nationalities, became more independent and learned how to respect the values of another culture.


Established in 1999, the Student Exchange Fund aims to enrich the educational experience of CityU students. It has subsidized 21 students to spend half a year studying in universities outside Hong Kong. Our partner institutions include LancasterUniversity, MurdochUniversity, Tamasek Polytechnic, PurdueUniversity, and ShanghaiJiaotongUniversity.


Students applying for the exchange programme are expected to have a GPA of 3.0 or above, a TOEFL score of 550 (or as specified by host institution) and an all-round personality. The University will provide substantial financial assistance to cover up the whole or part of the air ticket, room and board expenses and tuition fees payable to the host university. Students interested can contact the departmental co-ordinator for details. Closing date for 2001/2002 applications will be around February 2001.
