In addition, in cooperation with two research centers related to the department, visiting scholar programs and international seminars are regularly organized. We encourage colleagues and students to participate in these academic activities involving international scholars to promote international exchanges and cooperation.


To strengthen the international experience of PERM students by working closely with the Metropolitan Attachment Programme from Student Affairs Office (SAO) and international exchange programmes from International Office (IO) of Hong Kong Baptist University.

The following support will be given to our PERM students:

  • Academic advice and credit transfers.
