Plan for exchange

4. Plan for exchange

Going on exchange can surely broaden your horizons! There are two main options for exchange study: HKU Worldwide Undergraduate Student Exchange Programme (HKUWWW) to be applied through the International Affairs Office (IAO) and (2) Faculty-level exchange programme. You have to carefully research the available host institutions from the IAO / Faculty websites. Read through the institution factsheets to choose your most desired host institution(s). You can also get many useful information from the Study Abroad Fair and briefing session organized by IAO. They are usually conducted in September each year. Take a look at IAO’s past event calendar to get a rough idea of the approximate dates. Also check the courses offered by the host institutions and plan for credit transfer. Feeling a bit confused? Take time to look at the 3-minute online briefing for exchange prepared by AAO.
