Go on Exchange

3. Go on Exchange

If you are going on exchange this year, here is some advice for you! First, know your objectives and plan them into your exchange. Second, apply for leave of absence and submit credit approval application with your Faculty by the deadline. Third, take care when selecting your courses. To bring back the credits, you will need courses that match with your HKU courses. Fourth, immerse yourself in the local culture and learning environment as much as possible. Network with your classmates and teachers in case you will go back for your PG studies!

If you are considering exchange in your final year, note that exchange in the final semester is usually not advised. Due to the difference in semester dates between HKU and the host institution, there may not be sufficient time to process the credit transfer for your timely graduation.
