Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Abbreviation: PolyU, Chinese: 香港理工大學) is a university in Hong Kong whose teaching units are grouped under six faculties and two schools: Faculty of Applied Science and Textiles, Faculty of Business, Faculty of Construction & Environment, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Health & Social Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, alongside with the School of Design and the School of Hotel and Tourism Management.
PolyU is located close to the city centre, putting you in the perfect position to experience everything Hong Kong has to offer while enjoying a vibrant and active student life. From inspiring talks by distinguished speakers, to hikes in the Hong Kong hills, cultural excursions, workshops and exploring the city’s vibrant nightlife, there’s always something to see and do.
PolyU offers wide range of courses for student exchange. Take a look at the available courses, which are listed by programme and divided into Semester 1 and Semester 2. You’re required to complete a minimum of 9 credits and a maximum of 18 credits per semester. Most subjects carry 3 credits each (approximately 42 teaching hours), so we recommend taking 4-6 subjects per semester.
Your 'host' department during your exchange will be the academic department that offers the academic programme you are admitted to. At least 50% of your enrolled subjects must come from the host department. Being attached to a host department will give you priority in registering for subjects within that department. The rest of workload can be subjects offered by other departments. All registrations are subject to the approval of the respective departments.
