HKU Outgoing Exchange Programme


It is now possible to study for part of your degree on an approved exchange or limited Visiting Student programme. It is a worthwhile experience which will broaden your horizon and perspective.

LLB students may go on a one semester or full year exchange through the Faculty of Law programmes in their Year 3 or Year 4. Integrated degree students (BBA(Law)&LLB, BSS(G&L)&LLB and BA&LLB may do so in Year 4 or Year 5.

Students wishing to transfer credit for 1 or 2 law subjects during a non-Faculty of Law exchange, or obtain advance standing from a summer or other visiting student programme, must obtain the prior approval of the Director of Exchange (Outgoing).  Obtaining prior approval means exactly that.  Applications made during or after a programme of study will not be approved.
