The University of Hong Kong (HKU) is committed to providing students with a holistic learning experience. Through different in-class learning activities, HKU students are given ample opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills and achieve their academic potential. Students are also encouraged to take their learning beyond campus walls to enrich their university experiences in different cultural and learning environments.
The “China Vision” programmes offers a wide range of opportunities for HKU students to participate in more off-campus learning experiences in Mainland China. Hong Kong and the Mainland are culturally similar and yet feature their own unique characteristics. Through “China Vision”, students can gain intuitive experiences from multi-faceted cultural and practical exchanges to enhance their understanding of the Mainland.
In the past years, students travelled not only to metropolitan cities such as Beijing and Shanghai to witness their dynamic development, but also set foot in remote and rural areas to gain insights into pressing social issues, such as poverty, environmental protection, and public health education. Participation in these cultural visits, field trips, exchange programmes, service learning, research projects and summer courses enables students to raise their awareness of critical issues and understand their potential impact in a connected world.
Since its inception, China Vision has developed collaborations with nearly 100 universities, government departments, NGOs and business corporations, providing diverse learning experiences for more than 10,000 students. Moving forward, China Vision will continue to build connections between Mainland and Hong Kong, and offer meaningful multicultural exchange activities for our students.
