Learning beyond Hong Kong has long been a key feature of undergraduate education at HKU. The University is well-positioned and resourced to open up more in-depth and meaningful opportunities for students to learn beyond Hong Kong. The Academic Development Proposal (ADP) 2016-19 commits the University to the following targets: “By 2019, 50% of all Ugs will engage in at least one learning experience overseas AND one in Mainland China …. We aim to increase this overseas and Mainland China experience for 100% of our students by 2022.”

The Horizons Office supports the University’s endeavor by working with community partners around the world in offering experiential learning programmes beyond Hong Kong and provides financial support to students. These learning opportunities and support include:
