Internationalisation and Local Engagement

Develop and strengthen collaborative partnerships with schools, institutions and organisations locally and internationally, and take on a leadership role in research and knowledge transfer

Our internationalisation and local engagement is driven by the University’s Strategy for Internationalisation (2020-2025) to be ‘a global university positioned in one of the global cities in the world and is equally thoughtful to its identity with Asia and the role of Asian universities to bridge global and Asian scholarship.’ (p.1). There are three strategic areas for internationalisation and local engagement that we have identified.

Over the next three years, we will
•    establish at least 15 new partnerships at the Faculty level with development agencies, universities and governments in the Greater Bay Area, Mainland China, and internationally to enhance education equity, quality, and efficiency
•    provide additional seed funding for academic staff to work with local and international partners to develop research, conferences or professional development proposals
•    conduct reviews of existing FEHD programmes and courses and build in opportunities for students to enrol and engage in exchange programmes or short term/summer courses with institutional and organisational partners overseas

Establish local and international interdisciplinary research/capacity building hubs/networks to engage key education stakeholders and address key education issues of equity, quality, and efficiency

Over the next three years, we will:
•    provide seed funding for academic staff to work with local and international partners to set up research or capacity building hubs/networks based on FEHD’s strategic research areas and knowledge transfer expertise
•    co-organise and support at least 12 local and international conferences and workshops with key FEHD partners as platforms for partnership development to establish the research/ capacity building hubs/networks
•    support the development of a database of resources for the research/capacity building hubs/networks

Promote ‘internationalisation at home’ by creating learning environments of cultural and linguistic diversity in support of the development of international perspectives in the curriculum

We will ensure that the curriculum framework shapes learning as a response to increasing globalisation, bringing more international students into our programmes and courses, and supporting colleagues to work with international researchers in Hong Kong.

Over the next three years, we will:
•    attract 20 per cent more international students into our programmes either for exchange or full-time study
•    organise social or research activities that bring local and international students together
•    provide grants for academic and teaching staff to include international students in their courses or selected activities in their courses (online or onsite)
•    provide fellowships for international researchers to spend time on campus to work with FEHD staff on research, teaching and learning or knowledge transfer
