Welcoming Inbound Exchange students to EdUHK in Semester 1, 2018-19
From late August to early September, a week of orientation activities were held by Global Affairs Office (GAO) to help exchange students embrace the EdUHK community and have a better understanding on life in Hong Kong. Almost 150 exchange students from 16 countries joined the orientation programme on 28 August 2018 with local buddies. After the welcome speech delivered by Dr. Simon Xu, the Associated Vice President (Global Affairs) and Director of Global Affairs, there were briefing sessions from Registry, Student Affairs Office and Estates Office (Amenities & Sports Complex).
Exchange students got involved in funny games to know each other and explored the EdUHK’s facilities through amusing quiz and campus hunt. All exchange students were excited to learn simple Cantonese for greetings and self-introduction as well. Different activities like hiking, museum visits, school visits, Mid-Autumn Festival celebration, cultural showcase will be organized throughout the semester.
