Internationalization is a key initiative of PolyU. It is also an important part of our mission in providing opportunities for students to be exposed to different cultures. There is also a need for students in Hong Kong to be aware of the recent developments in Chinese Mainland in terms of technology, economy, business, livelihood and culture. Since 2005, the department has initiated a Chinese Mainland Awareness Programme for all undergraduate students. Study tours have been organized during Christmas, Easter and Summer breaks for students to visit academic institutions, hi-tech industry, manufacturing plants, businesses, etc. in the Mainland.

Our study tours cover many cultural cities in the mainland and in overseas countries in order to broaden students’ international exposure.
