Where You Will Study


Located in the southern edge of China, the world's emerging economic giant, Hong Kong is ideally positioned to learn about business - especially business in the new Asia. Hong Kong is one of the world's leading financial centers, along with London and New York, offering on-the-spot insight into the latest
global business developments, with the addition of views from Asia. As the regional headquarters of choice for many multinational companies, Hong Kong is also home to CEOs and top decision-makers, providing great networking and career opportunities. The expertise of its professionals in assisting development in mainland China, together with a location next to the booming market in Pearl River Delta, makes Hong Kong the perfect place to acclimatize to the China business scene. The city is also a leading source of foreign capital for China businesses, with more than 100 mainland and state-owned companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. A charismatic blend of Chinese heritage and western institutions creates an exciting, cosmopolitan city that enables students not only to learn about life East and West but to live it.

For more information about the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and being an exchange student there, please contact them directly or explore their website.




Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.

For more information about housing, please visit the University's housing portal.

For the total estimated costs of this particular program, you may request a budget by filling out a Budget Request Form.

Application Process

Departmental Exchanges generally focus on a specific academic discipline and often restrict participation to students in that department.  Applications and student selection for Departmental Exchanges are managed by the UW academic department, but students participating in Departmental Exchanges work with the UW Study Abroad Office to complete the same pre-departure requirements as other UW study abroad students.

If you are interested in a Departmental Exchange, contact the department coordinator listed above for information, application instructions and deadlines.  

Most application deadlines occur 6-8 months in advance of an exchange start date, so contact your department early.
