HKBU International Association (IA)

Our Hearts are in Hong Kong!

International Students Club

As there's a growth in numbers of international & local non-Chinese (ethnic minority) undergraduate students in Hong Kong Baptist University, and the community will be even bigger in the future, the HKBU International Association (IA) was established.  IA will serve as a platform to facilitate communication between international & local non-Chinese students, local students and the University. The association also acts as a support group helping international & local non-Chinese students to assimilate into university life as well as establish networks with other student societies.

By default, all undergraduate full-time international students (non-local non-Mainland) and local non-Chinese (ethnic minorities) will be members, and 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 the international & local non-Chinese students, and to increase the significance of international & local non-Chinese students' participations towards the whole HKBU community as a whole. Then, internationalized university will be possible to achieve. With the promotion of inclusiveness and internationalization of HKBU in mind, IA established event organizing committees which is called Global Engagement Squad (GES), which organizes various activities welcoming everyone of HKBU community, including local, Mainland, international students and staff.
