East-West Encounters

East west

"We all SMILE in the same language!"


The “East-West Encounters” Programme aims to orientate newly arrived international & exchange students and to foster cross-cultural exchanges between local and non-local students at HKBU.


It does so by mixing the student ambassadors and the non-local students in a range of educational and cultural activities including:


Buddies Scheme


   Arrival Pick-up & Orientation


Global Café   Outings

ALL Local, Mainland, International, as well as Exchange (1-year) students are eligible to be our ambassadors!​

The Programme is designed to nurture student ambassadors to cultivate their leadership, organisation and communication skills.

It is hoped that through this means friendships are developed between local and non-local students.
