Each year CUHK welcomes nearly 1000 students from both partner and non-partner institutions to study here for one term or the entire academic year. Courses offered by the Chinese Studies programme are all taught in English and are popular to visiting students who are either striving for in-depth knowledge on China or are just wanting to catch a glimpse of Chinese culture or society while studying at CUHK and living in Hong Kong.

Visiting students can choose courses from the introductory (1000) to the advanced (4000) levels, as well as postgraduate level (5000) in the following list. Anyone interested in joining the CUHK Visiting Student Programme should contact the Office of Academic Links for applications and details.

Note: Not all of the above courses are offered every year. Please refer to our programme Course List for available courses.
