Outgoing Exchange

Outgoing Exchange

The School believes that one of its core missions is to help students develop a global perspective of the world. In 2014/15AY, over 500 HKBU students, of which 23% are our business undergraduates, take part in the adventure of a lifetime by enrolling in the exchange programme offered at one of our 180 exchange partners around the world.

By spending a semester, or even a full academic year, in an overseas university, students immerse themselves in a foreign culture and a transformational experience inspiring them to live, learn and unleash their potential in a new environment. Summer exchange programmes are also available for students who wish to get a taste of this unique educational opportunity.
