Student Experience

East-West Encounters


"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


Thursday Party   Outings

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

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.
