Students may participate in Visiting Programme for one semester or one academic year. Different from exchange programmes, students will need to pay full academic tuition fees for the programme. HKU has expanded the Visiting Programmes partnership to the institutions. All visiting students joining any of these programmes attend classes with local students at the host institution, live in residential colleges with them and take part in extra-curricular activities usually only available to local students, while also enjoying the exciting study abroad experience.  



Columbia Visiting Student Program

Students may participate in a semester- or year-long programme for currently enrolled undergraduates. Students will need to pay full academic tuition fees while support on applications can be provided.

Fast-Pass to NYC: Columbia Visiting Students have access to all that New York City has to offer. Whether academically or extracurricularly, students can utilize New York City as their backyard. As residents of New York City, Columbians are connected to countless career fields; pursue opportunities in arts and culture through the Arts Initiative; and become globally aware citizens through interactions with presidents, prime ministers and other dignitaries at the annual World Leaders Forum.

Enriching College Experience: Columbia Visiting Students have the ability to study as a Columbia student from one semester up to a full year. This exchange program allows students to learn from a completely different community than their home institution. They are able to develop connections with a diverse group of students from a variety of backgrounds and identities.

World-Class Education: Columbia Visiting Students have access to Columbia's world-class faculty and facilities, including a newly expanded Makerspace for prototype fabrication and one of the ten largest libraries in the US. They fully immerse themselves in the academic community on our campus, enriching their college trajectory with new knowledge, insights and connections.
