The international exchange programme is an opportunity for students to experience studying abroad, outside of their habitual cultural context. It aims to develop students’ understanding and good will while strengthening cultural ties. It usually takes place in the second year of the Bachelor’s programme for out-bound Hong Kong students.
International students visiting Hong Kong can participate in our design studio work and study a large variety of subjects offered by our different disciplines. Our studio studies are fast-paced, focusing on experimentation and development of good design sense. Hong Kong is in close proximity (45 minutes to the mainland border) to China’s largest industrial cities in the Pearl River Delta. Studying at PolyU makes it ideal to understand this fast growing economy.
Check whether PolyU is partnered with your home university. If it isn’t, you can apply as a Study Abroad Student which means you will need to pay a tuition fee.
