The EdUHK is committed to creating a campus that facilitates cultural diversity and a closer integration of local and non-local students.

Support Services and Integration Activities for
Non-local Students

Together with the Global Affairs Office (GAO), the Student Affairs Office (SAO) provides support services for non-local students throughout their course of studies at the University.

A wide range of services and activities including orientation, buddy scheme, community and cultural exploration activities, festival gatherings, group activities and personal guidance are offered to help the students to gain a better understanding of the Hong Kong community, to adjust to study and campus life, to foster mutual support, as well as to facilitate cultural exchange among all students.


International Tutor Scheme

With a view to the enhancement of students’ exposure to English-speaking and cross-cultural environments for learning, the International Tutor Scheme recruits overseas university graduates to join local students in different forms of language learning activities, co-curricular activities and intercultural events on campus.

In addition, these resident international tutors form part of the tutorial teams in facilitating and building up the English language environment in student halls and generating more opportunities for students to practise speaking English.


Buddy Programmes

To enhance cultural integration between local and non-local students, the “Buddy Programmes” are designed for our students to discover more about life outside Hong Kong while remaining on campus, and to gain confidence in interacting and making friends with exchange students from all over the world.


Learn Globally@EdUHK

Through a year, intercultural activities are organised to promote internationalisation on campus and support the integration of local and non-local students.


Inbound Exchange Students

The University has signed exchange agreements with partner institutions in the Greater China region and overseas, and welcome aspiring incoming exchange students to study at the EdUHK in the Semester I and II.

Students may apply for one or both semesters through their home institutions.


Seminars, Conferences and Events

To enhance students’ English language abilities and enrich students’ cultural sensitivity and understanding, EdUHK recruits International Tutors (ITs) to provide support for English language learning activities, co-curricular activities and intercultural events for students of all programmes at EdUHK. This service is supported by both the Student Affairs Office (SAO) and the Centre for Language in Education (CLE).
