  • Students whose expected graduate date is 31 December 2023 are not eligible for any exchange programmes in 2024-25.
  • CUHK students who have satisfied all graduation requirements shall graduate. Therefore, students are strongly recommended to check the credit unit requirements of their major programmes and plan in advance of their academic studies so as to go on exchange before earning all credit units required for CUHK graduation.
  • It is compulsory for Journalism and Communication students to do the internship during Year-3 summer break. Please bear in mind that going on exchange in the second term of Year-3 might make it difficult to get internship interviews or offers.
  • During the entire study period at CUHK, each student can go on exchange for a maximum of one academic year, i.e. two regular terms plus one summer. Students who have been on exchange for one academic year are not allowed to apply.
