This programme is a series of ad hoc student-initiated cultural integration activities. It provides a networking platform and facilitates cultural exchange and integration of local and non-local students. Non-local students can get a glimpse into daily life in Hong Kong. Local students can benefit from their non-local pals in this ‘internationalisation at home’ programme as well. All activities are designed and implemented by HKU students, with the support of CEDARS.
