Beyond Curriculum

Overseas Exchange

Students with diverse international exposure will better appreciate opportunities in dynamic global business environments. Going on exchange is indeed one of the best ways for students to explore the world, develop their potential and understand different cultures.

- Over 95% of our students go on exchange to at least one of the 70 cities in 19 countries on 6 continents
- Students may go on summer, one-semester or one-year exchanges from their second year of studies onwards under the Program’s flexible study scheme
- Students can go on 2 or even 3 exchanges to maximize their experience

“Exchanging to the University of St. Gallen was definitely one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life. Talking about academic work, students work very hard there and the learning curve is very steep. I was always inspired during the discussions with them.

Apart from studying, travelling is another thing you must do during exchange. Switzerland is one of the best places in the world, with nice and friendly people and astonishing sceneries. It is a country where you can truly embrace the beauty of nature. It is also located at the center of Europe, which allows you to travel to other countries at low cost. The culture and flexibility of QFIN has provided me a wonderful exchange experience, and made me more prepared for all the upcoming challenges and opportunities. Grasp the chance, explore and enjoy!”

“You have got to spare at least a semester abroad! I am really grateful to have gone on an exchange to Peking University, and to be expecting another to Bocconi University. Although my initial inclination was to absorb the academic excellence from the best establishment in the whole of Mainland China, I soon switched to exploration-mode. New friends, extraordinary travelling, and a myriad of extra-curricular activities have been the highlights of my programme, and should be everyone’s too.

I did not speak Mandarin before going to Beijing. Do not EVER be discouraged by your lack of language abilities and rule out a region from your exchange options. Explore the possibilities instead. I emboldened myself to take some courses in Putonghua.

Go on exchange programs; work really hard; make new international friends, and attend unique classes not offered in CUHK. These experiences will benefit you for the rest of your life. Good Luck!”

““Work hard play hard”—there is no better words to describe UPenn. It offers you an unparalleled global exposure. The undergraduate population includes students from well over 100 countries. With this diversity and professors’ exceptional emphasis on students’ participation, I was constantly inspired by a wide range of perspectives. Students work very hard here. It is normal that computer labs are fully occupied at 3:30 am. At the same time, UPenn is “The Social Ivy”. The campus has an established party culture. One prime example is ”Spring Fling”. Students will party and drink non-stop for two or three days. In short, my trip was intellectually fruitful and relaxing. What more could you ask for?” “Raymond Yeung

“Exchange in University of British Columbia was an unforgettable experience. Located near Wreck Beach and with countless exquisite gardens across the whole campus, UBC is one of the most beautiful universities in the world: you can sit in the garden peacefully and enjoy the wonderful opera presented by students, or you can lie on the beach at dusk to watch the magnificent sunset.

During exchange, I got to know people from different countries, and together with these friends, we studied late into night; we held sweet parties to celebrate each other’s birthdays, and we travelled to different places in Canada and USA to experience the first time skiing ever in my life, to see the glacial ice, and to take the helicopter flying over the Grand Canyon. Exchange can always give you surprises, so grasp the chance to study abroad and explore the outside world!”
