Term-Time Exchange Programmes 2019–20

CW Chu College aims to be Intimate, International, Intellectual and Involved.  Academic exchange provides the opportunity for international as well as Mainland exposure, and for stretching intellectual horizons through experience in other academic institutions.
     
Inbound Exchange
      
While students will naturally think about opportunities to take part in outbound exchange, it should not be forgotten that welcoming and mixing with incoming exchange students is also a valuable opportunity.  CW Chu College has started receiving incoming exchange students in the academic year 2013–14, and their presence helps create the cultural diversity in the College.
 
 
University-wide Outbound Opportunities
         
CUHK has developed exchange partnership with over 280 institutions in over 30 destinations.  These are managed by the Office of Academic Links (OAL) , whose webpage should be considered for more information, including the dates for application.
 
CUHK Outgoing Exchange Programmes (2020–21) – Application and Selection Schedule
    
The online application for programmes administrated by OAL (University-wide as well as departmental) has started on 4 October 2019. Interested students are required to submit a separate application to OAL and follow the standard application procedures. Please refer to the PDF below for the application and selection schedule of U-wide Exchange Programmes.

Getting Ready Important Points To Note

Students who would like to apply for outbound exchange programmes (both U-wide and College ones) are reminded to take note of the following:

  • Study the application requirements (e.g. language, GPA, TOEFL/ IELTS scores required) of the host institutions carefully.
  • Some host institutions require applicants to provide valid TOEFL/ IELTS score report(s) at the time of application, so students who have not yet taken these tests have to check for the coming test dates and prepare for enrolment.
  • Check the programmes offered to exchange students at the host institutions; students who want to apply for credit transfer are required to explore the application procedures and details with their home departments at CUHK.
  • Minimum course load requirement for exchange participation (effective from 201415): CUHK students in the new curriculum must enroll in a minimum of 9 units of courses per term (or equivalent, except summer term) during exchange.
  • Only TOEFL / IELTS scores from tests on or after 1 September 2017 are valid for the application of both College and U-wide exchange programmes (2020-21).
  • Join briefing session(s) organized by OAL/ the College to learn more about the application details and get prepared for the selection interview.
  • Take note of the application deadline(s) and interview date(s).
  • Revision of student exchange remarks on CUHK transcripts (effective from Term 2, 201415): The statement of exchange participation under the "Remarks" column at the end of CUHK transcripts will be revised to "Attended < Name of Institution> as exchange student in <Academic Term and Year> in partial fulfilment of the requirements of this degree. A complete academic record of this degree programme should include the academic transcript from the exchange university to be provided seperately by the student."

For students who are in their final year in 2019–20:

i) Final year students who are shortlisted MUST seek their major Department’s pre-approval for extension of study period at CUHK by completing the “Application for Extension of Study Period” form. Relevant students may please send an email ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) to Ms. Alice Tang, Executive Officer of the College, for a copy of the form.

ii) If final year students apply for the exchange programmes offered by both College and OAL, they are required to obtain the “Application for Extension of Study Period” form from College and OAL separately.

iii) Final year students CANNOT choose the exchange programmes offered in Term 2 of 2020–21.

Financial Support
 
i) Provided by OAL
 
The University has a scheme of financial support for students going on approved academic exchange.  This consists of both a means-tested and a non-means-tested component.  Please refer to the webpage of the Office of Academic Links for more information.
 
ii) Provided by College      
 
CW Chu College may also offer top-up financial support to students participating in outgoing exchange programmes:
 
  • For College exchange programmes: The application for exchange scholarships will be considered together with the applications for College exchange programmes. 
  • For U-wide exchange programmes: Students who secure U-wide slots administered by OAL may also submit application for College exchange scholarships. Application details will be announced by mass email in Term 2, 2019–20.
  • Exchange scholarships for needy students: A new exchange scholarship with a maximum of $50,000 (per award) has been established to support needy students who wish to take part in outbound exchange. Selection will be based on both need and merit basis. The academic performance of the applicant and his/her contributions to the College will also be considered.
  • Students joining College exchange programmes are required to fulfill the minimum course load requirement set by CUHK (i.e. 9 units of courses per term and passing at least 6 of them per term or the equivalent) during their exchange periods. Students who fail to meet this basic requirement will NOT be granted College exchange scholarships/ subsidies or such offers will be withdrawn by the College.
 
Arrangements on Hostel Accommodation & Communal Dining for Outgoing Exchange Students
  • Students who have been granted a confirmed offer by the College/ OAL/ any other CUHK units for participation in term-time exchange programmes are required to
i) apply for suspension of studies via their home departments and the Registration and Examinations Section of the Registry well in advance and ii) submit a special application for exemption from hostel lodging and communal dining during their exchange periods to the College for formal approval by 31 May of the previous academic year. Details will be announced by the College via email.
  • Based on the mutual agreements between CUHK/CWC and their exchange partners, the hostel place released by an outgoing exchange student of CWC will be allocated to an incoming exchange student.
  • The gap in residence due to participation in U-wide/ College/ departmental exchange programmes will still be counted as part of the four-year guaranteed hostel residence (less than 4 years of hostel entitlement for students who are admitted with Advanced Standing) offered by College to the CWC student concerned. Should the student want a hostel place beyond the period of entitlement, he/ she is required to submit a special application to the Student Affairs Committee for consideration by following the standard guidelines and deadline set by the College. That application, if received, will be reviewed together with all other similar applications by the Committee. Details and relevant clauses of such kind of special applications will be announced via email in due course.
