Tufts in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, an affluent modern city of more than seven million, offers visitors a unique blend of Eastern history and Western influence. Returned to China in July 1997 after more than 150 years as a British Crown Colony, Hong Kong continues to enjoy a high degree of autonomy as a Special Administrative Region.

The Tufts-in-Hong Kong program is affiliated with the University of Hong Kong and offered for the spring semester. HKU, as the university is known, evolved from the former Hong Kong College of Medicine, which was instituted in 1887. Since its official opening in 1912, the University has embodied the pioneering spirit of Hong Kong. It remains at the forefront of breakthroughs in medical and scientific research. HKU has a student population of around 23,000, with about 3,300 international students.

Courses are taught in English and are offered across a broad curriculum. Faculties open to Tufts-in-Hong Kong students include Arts, Education, Business and Economics, Engineering, Law, Science, and Social Sciences.

Director: Vera Sui Ping Yip, B.A., Southern Illinois University; Ph.D., Medical College of Wisconsin.

The resident director advises students on academic and extracurricular matters and organizes special trips and activities.

The Tufts-in-Hong Kong program is open to undergraduate juniors and seniors who meet the requirements listed here. Students from all academic majors are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to students who can demonstrate that a semester in Hong Kong will benefit their overall undergraduate program and/or to students who have taken courses related to Asia.
