Exchange: Chinese University of Hong Kong

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is a leading comprehensive research university.  CUHK offers undergraduate and postgraduate level courses under the faculties of Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Science, and Social Science.  Many of these courses are open to exchange students.  Past exchange students from U of T have taken courses related to Economics, Finance, and East Asian Studies at CUHK.

Living on-campus allows students to experience local student life and culture, and make new friends.  The residential halls, which are called hostels have wardens and residence tutors to oversee students’ physical and mental well-being and provide necessary support to residents. The tutors will also organize resident-association activities such as dinners, games and other gatherings to bring students together.  Most rooms are shared, many accommodating two to a room, although some can house up to four.
