Our Hearts are in Hong Kong!

As there's a growth in the numbers of international & local non-Chinese (ethnic minority) undergraduate students at Hong Kong Baptist University, and the community will be even bigger in the future, the HKBU International Association (IA) was established. IA acts as a liaison between international students and the University management and aims to enrich international and ethnic minority students' campus life and promote internationalisation on campus.

All undergraduate full-time international students (non-local, non-Mainland) and local non-Chinese (ethnic minorities) are welcome to be members. The association also extends its reach to full-time postgraduate international and ethnic minority students.

The ultimate goal of IA is to raise the awareness and sensitivity of the whole HKBU community towards the presence of international & local non-Chinese students and to increase the significance of international & local non-Chinese students' participation in the entire HKBU community as a whole to achieve an internationalised university environment. With the promotion of inclusiveness and internationalisation of HKBU in mind, IA established an event organising committee called the Global Engagement Squad (GES) to organise various activities welcoming every one of the HKBU community, including local, Mainland, and international students and staff.
