New developments in student exchange
New exchange students arriving for the Spring Term in 2019 are warmly welcomed by Vice-Chancellor Prof. Rocky S. Tuan.
CUHK welcomed more than 480 new exchange students from partner institutions worldwide at the beginning of the Spring Term in 2019. In addition to academic studies, plenty of opportunities such as excursions are available to this diverse group to explore Hong Kong and deepen their understanding of the city. In February, the exchange students paid a visit to Tsz Shan Monastery for a spiritual journey. Not only did they admire the stunning architecture of the Chinese Buddhist monastery as well as its breath-taking 76m-tall Guanyin statue, they also got a glimpse on Buddhism and stretched both their bodies and minds at a fun-filled yoga session.

The University is committed to creating new opportunities to enrich the exchange experience of CUHK students. The American University of Sharjah (AUS) in the United Arab Emirates is the latest destination added to the University’s list of over 280 exchange partners. Located at Sharjah’s University City which is close to the country’s major cities of Sharjah and Dubai, students undertaking exchange at AUS will experience Arab heritage and culture and be immersed in its multi-cultural campus at the same time.
