Exchange Programme

The College started to establish student exchange programmes with overseas tertiary institutions in 1990. The programmes provide students with opportunities to challenge themselves to see things from a new perspective, to rediscover themselves, their city and culture from a global stage; and to hopefully, when they return, contribute to cultural integration in the College.

Selected students of exchange programmes would be invited by the College to apply for scholarships for exchange programmes. A total of 74 students were awarded each with a scholarship of HK$10,000 to participate in an overseas exchange programme in 2023/24. In 2024/25, 80 scholarships will be awarded to students (HK$10,000 each). 20 out of 80 scholarships will ONLY be awarded to students participating in College Exchange Programmes.

Selected students with financial difficulties may also apply for the College Exchange Programme Bursary and Loan Scheme in January/February. The value of each bursary for outgoing exchange students in 2023/24 ranged from around HK$5,800 to HK$43,440 depending on the financial need of the applicants.
